How we are observing determines how the world shows up or appears to us. This is no more clearly illustrated than the parable of the missing elephant, read more here.
Broadly the parable implies that one’s subjective experience can be true, but that such experience is inherently limited by its failure to account for other truths or a totality of truth. In other words we cannot see all that our senses report, but only the things that fit the picture we have. There is a qualitative difference between what we actually perceive and what we think we see.
How we behave is determined by how we are observing situations and the world in which we now live demands that each of us continually becomes a different and more powerful observer. When you become a different observer life takes on a different meaning.
Considering alternative perspectives and exploring our behaviours and experiences with another person, allows us to reconnect with who we really are and create the conditions for growth.
Our role at missing elephant is to partner you in this process, providing you with a safe, empathic and confidential space for growth through self-discovery.
