Another image of a bird but this time a painted one in Berlin, I can’t remember where I took this picture but it was funny to see the way the crow was tilting its head and because of the branches, to me this bird is shifty as anything. The internal image this bird brought up is that shifty individual trying to lure you with sweets. It’s interesting how certain things we see invokes other internal pictures.
If you have been a frequent visitor to the blog; you may have already experienced the internal dialogue by seeing the image of the day and perhaps if you had the patience to read my entry then perhaps you also answered the questions posed in the entries. If you are new to these posts; i wonder what internal image my title brought up for you; and what thoughts passed through your head? Each of us has an internal world that we do not share with people; and we also have an external expression of our selves that is interpreted by others through the filter of their own senses. I guess the external expression of us is often filtered in such a way so as to lure the people in who are around us.
Have you ever spent time with someone who has no filter at all and they say it like it is? How did that make you feel? Were you comfortable with the responses you were getting? Were you ok with their interpretation of you, or of the world? How did your internal self feel about it?
I often spend time with clients who do not really have a filter per se due to their learning differences; and it is refreshing to hear their own perspectives and how they see the world. I guess it is also dependent on their literal interpretation of the world and their ability to extrapolate.
What would happen if you expressed every thought out loud; or if you emparted all of your own expressions of the internal world?
A simple crow behind a bunch of branches, the source of an internal joke for me; a source of discomfort for some. We are all have a unique model of the world, but how do we harmonise with others?
