At the foundation of our thinking is an essential philosophy, a self-paradigm (a view of ourselves as we relate to the world). When we process from this perspective it is difficult for us to imagine ever performing certain actions. Indeed, some actions seem completely “out of bounds.” But if we experience a shift in our essential philosophy, our future action set can appear quite different. More importantly, our interpretation of our past actions can appear different. A shift at the foundation of your self-paradigm impacts your perspective – not just on the future, but on the past. It makes possible a future action set that would have previously been unthinkable.

    Funny how this has been such an important part of my teaching this past year- as we learn to forgive and let go of the stranglehold the events of our past hold on our current thoughts and actions – We are then freed to do exactly what you describe as a paradigm shift in self perception. I ask my students what will you do with this freedom of thought? How will you redefine yourself? Would you be the hero or the victim in the story of your life – you are the central character and it is up to you to decide what you would be. Missing this dialogue. Betina
