One Photo – Multiple Reactions

One photo has the power to spark very different reactions in people.

My reactions are based on my experiences and my beliefs, which are part of the family and the community in which I live.  One photo can feel fun and playful to one person and yet trigger very raw feelings of distress in another. My work is to resolve the perceptions that trigger my reactions so that I can have a higher level of compassion to support others to feel safe and included.

Currently, our main tool to live in harmony in a multicultural society is to apologize and vow to do better in the future. The weakness in this approach is that we still hold the same perceptions that trigger our beliefs. We feel remorse or embarassment. We say we are sorry. We ask for forgiveness. Yet we remain vulnerable to repeat the behaviour and we lack the level of compassion to needed support those we have distressed. Our promises lack authenticity because we have not shifted the underlying perceptions that form our beliefs.

An apology is not enough to heal the traumas of the past. An apology is not enough to create the compassion required to support others with diverse backgrounds. An apology is not enough to live in a multicultural, global society.

We need more powerful tools to resolve the hurt of the past and to live in harmony.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.

  • Albert Einstein

In a global society, we have a responsibility to be open to new understanding. In leadership roles, we need to challenge our beliefs. In the age of quantum physics, we need to appreciate the power of words to the shift energy which triggers our reactions.

The thoughts, emotions and sensations that are evoked by one photo today are triggered by perceptions frozen in our memories and beliefs. By shifting the perception, we shift the thoughts, emotions and sensations. We can resolve the pain in our heart, the pounding in our head and the anger in our words.

Powerful tools do not require complexity. Powerful tools require an appreciation for the power of spirit.
