Is it because we become so attached to our limited ideologies that we can fail to look at the whole? When we come to accept an ideology as the sole truth, when other people’s facts contradict our beliefs no matter how plausible their ideologies are, we will fail to remove the blindfold.
Even when their facts contradict our current beliefs and we’re feeling threatened, we’re still not prepared to remove the blindfold. But just imagine how big the world becomes when we’re willing to shift our ideology past our own personal beliefs.
It is a big world out there, it’s important we learn about it. Removing the blindfold allows us to engage unconditionally in what’s beyond our four walls and allows for emotional and spiritual growth.
We’re telling the world we’re open to possibilities beyond what we think we know and that says a lot about us. Whilst the blindfold is on, we’re not choosing to look inwards at our thought process and that has the potential to set events of a negative cycle in motion.
Through a blindfold that’s permanently fixed, we condition ourselves to self-limiting beliefs, without looking for further explanation. When we take the blindfold off, and we’re looking at our lives in the whole, we’re able to see its flaws, rather than just accept our self-limiting beliefs.
Self-limiting beliefs are false ideologies. I am sure we all have someone in our midst, whose opinions are based on self-limiting ideologies who are not willing to think about or consider other people’s views.
So, if the ideology you follow has been there for far too long and your life isn’t taking shape, and isn’t how you want it to be, remember to take the blindfold off.
