Episode #126 — The birds and the fish are on their own.

I see blind people. Everywhere … I know because I am one of them.

Though I love a good movie reference, this is more than just a pop culture playground. I am constantly amazed at how blind to our own wants, fears, dreams, short-comings, patterns, and blocks that even the most self-aware of us can be. It’s almost as if as soon as our gaze hits the mirror, we become blind.

“The Three Great Mysteries:
air to a bird, water to a fish,
man to himself.”

— Hindu proverb

A client recently shared with me that her husband and daughter were at each other and, at the core, her husband was trying to control in her the very thing over which he has no control in his life.

And I immediately realized that I was that dad … and for a very long time. I raged when I saw in my eldest the very things I struggled with accepting in myself. But I wasn’t conscious of that at the time. And it put a stain on our relationship.

Why is it that what I can see so clearly happening in others I can’t see clearly in myself? Because I’m human … and that’s what we do (by default, that is). And with intention and attention we can break that pattern and solve one of those three great mysteries.

What are you blind to? How long until you change that?
