When the Spanish arrived in Mexico, theindians
could not see the boats. They just saw strange men arriving in their shores but couldn’t see where they came from. When the witch doctor arrived, he saw the boats and described them to his companions, only then could they see the ships. Thisstrory
serves to remind us that we only see that for which we have a frame ofreference,
if there is no reference, oropeness
to create one, we cannot see what is in front of us. In the same way, when we have abeilief
about the world, this is our frame of reference and we will live and experiment only what fits in our mental frame of reference. So, we live what we believe. In modern times this would be called aself fulfilling
prophecy, as Henry Ford would say,weather you believe you can or you believe you can’t, you are right.
So let’s be careful about what we believe, for it will be what we live.
