we suffer not from the events in our lives but from your judgement about

We assign the meaning:

“You see, it’s never the environment; it’s never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events … how we interpret them … that shapes who we are today and who we’ll become tomorrow.”
– Tony Robbins

Another Variation of this quote:

“We suffer not from the events in our lives but from our judgement about them.” – Epictetus


Meaning of quote:

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death – however mutable man may be able to make them – our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfilment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” – Stanley Kubrick

Joshua Bach has entered the chat…

In a podcast with Joscha Bach, he mentions that we don’t exist in the physical world. We do exist inside of the story the brain tells itself. Your brain is not capable of feeling anything, neurons don’t feel, they are physical things. Physical systems are unable to feel anything.

But what would be very useful for the organism is to know what it would be like to be a person, to feel something. So it creates a model of such a person based on the interactions of that person. It’s the best model of what that brain, that organism thinks it is in relationship to it’s environment. It creates and lives in that model, it’s a story, a mutli-media novel that the brain is continuously writing and updating.

The beauty in life

It’s our responsibility and duty to find the positive meaning in the suffering or the pain.

Two people can live through the same experience and arrive at completely different destinations. This doesn’t happen by luck or chance, but by choice.

We can accept the worse or assume the best. The choice is ours to make depending on the kind of life we’d like to lead.
