Most of the time we believe we're perceiving the world accurately through our personal experience and the information (accurate or not) to which we've exposed ourselves.
To become a bridger we need to cultivate the ability to question our own beliefs and how we've come to have them, and then we can "zoom out" beyond our personal lenses and filters to get a more accurate view of the world at large.
Robert Anton Wilson wrote: “The world is not governed by facts or logic.
It is governed by BS (belief systems).”
How does this apply to you and your world? Let me know.
