We’re continually taking action. Every action–even when it’s taken by default–gets a result. We, then, use the results as evidence to prove a theory.
The evidence doesn’t even have to support our theory for us to use it. We filter the evidence through our belief system, distorting it as necessary, to back us up (psychologists call this confirmation bias).
It explains why people can be so narrow minded and opinionated in the face of your own “evidence.” Oh, it also explains why you can be so narrow minded in the face of your own “evidence,” but I already covered that.
In light of this truth, let’s be careful to act on what we know, rather than what we believe. Let’s trust what we know in our hearts, rather than what we’re trying to justify in our minds.
We can do that. We can act on what we know and make it our reality.
