“When we can stand back a bit from our problems to see from a broader perspective, it becomes clear that the underlying cause of much of our resistance boils down to one cause: our beliefs. Our beliefs about ourselves and the world are, for the most part, handed down to us from our families, communities, and culture. Not knowing any better, we blindly accept and internalize these, but our narrow, hand-me-down beliefs limit the perceptual lens through which we view the world.
It is important to keep in mind that no matter what our issue or problem seems to be, it is not likely that we are seeing it “as it is.” Our unexamined narrow view is selectively closed off to people and places, concepts and opinions, ideas and solutions that don’t fit within the scope of our lens. We cannot see what we cannot conceive of or what we reject.”
Suzanne Scurlock-Durana, in “Full Body Presence”
