MIRROR THREE: MENTAL FILTER II
If you look at the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh, you see his distorted representations of reality. His broad strokes of color paint a world very different from the one in which everyone else lives.
He painted the world through his own unique mental filter, and hence, we have art that reflects his compromised mental status.
His paintings record the deterioration of his condition as his bizarre mental filter reflects an increasingly distorted view of the world.
I once worked with a physician who tended to focus on the dark side of life, and he expressed his pessimistic view by wearing a lapel pin in the shape of a dark cloud.
Although he didn't have a problem with depression, people with depression do look on the dark side, and a single negative event can instantly activate a dark filter that colors everything in their life.
This mirror is difficult to destroy, because the reflected image looks normal to a person suffering from depression.
If no one told them differently, they wouldn't have any idea that the mental filter was coloring their life in an adverse manner.
Destroying this mirror requires help from other people.
With a little help from your friends or from a therapist, you will be able to detect and eliminate a mental filter that is coloring your world.
Pick up your sledge hammer and experience the joy of smashing the mental filters in your mind. This is definitely a mirror that you can live without.
