Where to turn your attention

パラレルワールド-2 English

Hello. When we see or think about something, the way we perceive it changes depending on where we turn our attention. This time I would like to think about where to turn my awareness.

As I wrote in “Thinking about information overload“, the spread of the Internet has made it possible to connect with the world, and a lot of information has become available.

It’s easier to get on an airplane, and you can easily go abroad.

When we learn about foreign countries, we can understand how rich and convenient Japan is. On the other hand, there are times when we are confronted with how far behind Japan is.

When we are in Japan, there are times when we feel inconvenient when we go abroad and do things that we can do without thinking. In the past, I wrote about “For someone, is it really for someone else?depending on where we focus, things like “normal” and “common sense” change.

Actually, there are a lot of “good things” happening every day, but when one bad thing happens, I think “it’s always like this” or “why?”, and my mood plummets.

There are quite a few gloomy proverbs, such as “One trouble comes another,” or “Step on and kick.” I can’t really think of a proverb to get well.

People tend to focus on the gloomy rather than the cheerful, and it is easy to remember. This may be a necessary instinct in order to avoid danger as quickly as possible.

But in this day and age, we can live peacefully without being so nervous. Therefore, I think it would be good to increase the ratio of focusing on cheerful things.

We should be able to experience a lot of scales falling from our eyes by living with a lot of happiness with a 6: 4 or 7: 3 consciousness of positive and negative. And it may be an opportunity to get something more than ever.

Bad things happened → This must be a sign of good things to come.

I try to think like this. As expected, it will be depressed for a while, but I feel that it will be easier for me to recover faster if I switch to a cheerful mood rather than being gloomy forever.

You say it’s for someone, but is it really for someone?
