Recreate your experiences
We need to explain the phenomena of daily life to contain the emotional impact they generate in our inner landscape. We are the authors of the script that defines the shape of our own experiences. The script is a personal narrative that reshapes the past, describes the present and anticipates the future. We are responsible for our own experiences. Have you ever stopped to think what script you are writing about the events around you?
Our experiences are personal representations of reality which arise from our thoughts and our emotions (what we think and what we feel). So that, the relation with reality becomes the relation to our experiences about reality. The (positive or negative) sign of the feelings does not depend exclusively on the conditions of events, but it is also dependent on the components that determine our personal experiences.
You cannot control the dynamics of many situations in which you participate. In the same way, you also cannot control the emotions that generate those situations. However, we can rewrite the script that affects our experiences. You can recreate the experiences which define the meaning of your scenes, and you can transform them. Expand the color palette to create new emotional responses to the everyday world.
contents + emotions = experiences
Experiences are subjective representations which involve two dimensions: the content that gives shape to the events and the emotions that define our reactions to these situations. In this sense, recreating your experiences does not mean the control of external phenomena. The control of external events does not change the characteristics of circumstances.
Rewrite the script that you unfoldWe live in an explained world. The quality of your narratives defines the quality of the landscape where you live in. Cleaning the narratives involves recovering the value of the words that you use in your script to avoid harmful and irrelevant content which may cloud your experiences. We can recreate the contents by focusing on three aspects: avoid meaningless verbiage, recognize what you project, and preserve what is important to you.
Redefine your personal exposure in the scenesEveryday situations we live in are composed of scenes (as in a film or play) where our script unfolds. These scenes can be real, or they can occur only in our imagination. The scenes activate emotions that have good and bad consequences for us. To take care of the way you engage in certain scenes, focus on three aspects: get away from risky situations, learn from uncomfortable situations, and nourish your inspiration.
