Rising above the experiences of everyday life into higher perspective, responding versus reacting (especially trauma responses), and being the less/non judgmental witness of our experience, are some of the most challenging, but useful practices we can employ to improve our lives and lower our cortisol!
But how? How can we when life and our relationships have the propensity to be so incredibly challenging?
One thing that has helped me immensely is applying the quote
“Whenever two people meet, there are really six people present. There is each man as he sees himself, each man as the other person sees him, and each man as he really is.”
A through examination and application of this quote has truly been a key in unlocking my mind. As I hope it will be for you too.
Knowing that a chasm between my real self, and my self-perception, has offered me greater liberation in my relationships with others; as I offer them the same freedom to live in their experienced self. Which is, perhaps, not always the self I know that I’m seeing before me.
