“We do not describe the world we see, we see the world we describe” Joseph Jaworski

How often do we see a picture and make our mind up straight away what it is all about? So often what prevents us from developing our senses is the persistent tendency to make up our mind about what is in front of us before we have even experienced it. PJ our dog is a Rottie who we got from a rescue home. He was all skin and bones, and his carers told us the reason he did not bark for the first 6 weeks we had him was he wasPJ still in shock. Before we had PJ whenever I saw a Rottie, I had a slight internal sense of anxiety. Now I have a Rottie of my own whenever I see one I have a totally different feeling. So often we see, what we expect to see based upon our past experience, or what we have been told. I wonder what it would be like if we began to really see what is in frontĀ  of us rather than what we think is in front of us?
