Key Thought for this session:
“My worldviews are what make me think, feel, and act as I do.”
Life's biggest QUESTIONS can open up the door to reveal the most amazing and simplest answers ... if we can just take time to slow down, think, and observe life as it passes by. I'm Breanne ... and this is the b4Worldview training course.
So, what is a "worldview"? In short, a person's worldview is HOW THEY MAKE SENSE of the world around them. This course is intended to help you better understand the role worldview plays in how you make sense of the things that happen to you in life.
For most of us, our own worldview is a subconscious thing that is invisible to us. But even if your worldview is invisible to you, it still determines how you see the realities of life, knowledge, truth, faith, and happiness, AND it determines how you think, feel and act.
This course is a self-discovery exercise to help you better comprehend what contributes to your own worldview. The more you understand the consistencies and contradictions in your own particular worldview ...and how YOURS differs from the worldviews of friends, family, and adversaries ... the better prepared you will be to make personal life decisions, deal with hardships, and effectively work with others.
You know, just the other day I was talking to a friend of mine who was ...just caught in the drama of her life ... she's overwhelmed in her classes and struggling to understand her teachers, frustrated over money concerns, tired of trying to figure out constant social media problems, friends, and family ... and ... to top it all off, her cat was almost swallowed whole by some stray dog! Really! ... so, as a counsellor, I knew this was not the right time for answers for her. As a friend ... I could NOT calculate enough chocolate that would make her feel better at the moment. OK, so ... you probably get it, because we all come to some place of frustration at one point or another.
Truth is, people today face a GREAT challenge to make SENSE of their lives. Because there is this constant bombardment of media, technology, and progressive thought, you are likely becoming aware that, depending on the situation, it can either produce exceptionally good results ...or really bad experiences. We have instant and global access to loads of information from almost any source. How do we make sense of it all? -- And think about it. You can contact just about anyone anywhere in the world at any time. Technology has made reality virtual. Because of this information overload, you may be asking: What is real? What can I believe? Who can I trust? How do I face all of these kinds of questions and still find my purpose and pursue my dreams?
Really, which of these questions do you care most about? I 'd like for you to take a moment to think about it and then go ahead and answer the question in the box at the bottom of this page. (There is no right or wrong answer, I only want you to be able to express what is most important to you.)
