Percolate

 

We all have hidden beliefs, the ones we don’t really want to admit to ourselves and others.

Since certain things came easily for me, and it was supported by my culture, I internalized beliefs about people for whom things didn’t come that easily.

They are lazy. They don’t get it. They should be able to pull themselves out of it. They are losers.

Now, I get to live out this shadow side of mine.

And although there is a chink in the armor, the beliefs are still here. What I am living doesn’t quite penetrate my beliefs. So it’s time to take a closer look at them, really examine them, one for one.

We all have hidden beliefs, the ones we don’t really want to admit to ourselves and others.

For me, certain things came very easy. I was good at school. Could do just about anything I put my mind to. Got things done. Excelled at the jobs I had. Had a great deal of passion and energy. And all of this was encouraged by my family and culture, so I had a set of beliefs around this, including about people who didn’t quite live up to these standards.

They are lazy. They don’t get it. They should be able to pull themselves out of it. They are losers.

Now, I get to live this shadow side of mine. I am the one who don’t seem to get things done, who can’t pull myself out of it, who don’t seem to get it – find the key out of it. I am the one who get to see, through own experience, that if Life doesn’t go there, “I” can’t so easily pull myself out of it.

And still, those beliefs are there. What I am living doesn’t quite penetrate my beliefs. So it’s time to take a closer look at them, really examine them, one for one.
