“We want the facts to fit the preconceptions. When they don’t, it is easier to ignore the facts then to change the preconceptions.”
Sometimes we may need to alter reality to feel we are aligned. We may be motivated by a need to be accepted, to feel we are right, or to escape the illusion of fear we construe in the truth.
“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions” wrote John Adams, “they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”
May we be blessed with insight, intuition and truth.
