Is there a reactive mind? A stimulus response mind that’s in everyone’s makeup-that keeps us being less than we could be/should be, and having the things we should have? That throws a wrench into experiences and relationships haphazardly?
Story: When growing up I was made to wear “glasses”. These made me uncomfortable to say the least since the ones I despised the most were colored pink. Pink? In grade school? You can imagine the jokes and ribbing.
Well, here’s the reactive part (a mild form of). Noticing over the past few summers that I would lose “sun glasses” quite freely and quickly after acquiring them, it came to me that there was a connection. A connection?
The connection being the word “glasses”. I so detested having to wear glasses (for many reasons)—I had a built in aversion to “glasses”. And the proof is I recently purchased a very expensive pair of Ray-Ban’s (now by Exotica) but I have not lost them. Probably never will. Did you notice I call them Ray-Ban’s not sun glasses? I only refer to them as that or sun shades.
This story has a “happy ending” but quirky. What did you expect?
More recently, my sun “Ray-Bans” broke. Yes, but more to fact, they were defective even though a high class-high quality-high ticket item. Nevertheless they broke.
Back to the store where I bought them. Repairable yes, several weeks, no dice.
Refundable yes, wonderful. But still no shades. Ah, did I mention they were not Ray-Bans? Maui Jims. Still high ticket.
Now let me see…Amazon.com…hmm
And the part of the human mind which victimizes us universally without cessation? There’s a very happy ending for it. Send a message, and I’ll release that story as well.
