We see the world not as it is, but as we are.‍

Our own collection of experiences, thoughts, and emotions create the glasses with which we see the world. Our own logic is molded by the myriad of experiences we had, the sensorial experiences we felt and the thoughts we entertain in our minds.‍

All the sensory experiences we have come ultimately from the things we decide to do.

This means, that the things we regularly do, all the habits that we run, the actions that we take, are ultimately the things that create our bubble of understanding of the world.

‍We shape our own view of the world by doing.‍

We shape our own selves by doing.‍

It’s hard to change our worldview if we don’t change our actions. It is so easy to get caught up in our own stories, in our old habits. We tell ourselves that doing something differently would mean “failing to be me”. We put lots of reasons, thoughts, ideas, and crazy complicated logic behind it, when the reality is much simpler:

We do then we become.

‍Becoming means” beginning to be” there’s an action necessary, a beginning, a vulnerable effort.‍‍

Doing shapes our self.

Doing creates the glasses with which we see.

Doing shapes our understanding of the world.
