Chief Joseph and John Cali
from the February 2008 Star Beacon
by Chief Joseph and John Cali
Now, you might be wondering what on earth Wells Fargo
has to do with this newsletter’s focus. Well, nothing, at least
directly. But there was an article last week in our local
newspaper, The Cody Enterprise, about one of the town’s banks
being taken over by Wells Fargo.
The readers’ comments grabbed my attention. At one end
of the spectrum were folks who said Wells Fargo had great customer
service. At the other end were those who said Wells Fargo’s
customer service was terrible.
Who was right?
This reminds me of a story I heard years ago. Whether
it’s based on fact or fiction, I don’t know. But it makes a great
Two people visited one of their town’s elders known for
his great wisdom.
The first person said he was moving to Chicago, and asked the
elder if it was a friendly city. The elder replied, “Do you think
this town is friendly?” The man said, “No, I can’t wait
to get out of here — it’s an unfriendly place.” The elder replied,
“You’ll find Chicago an unfriendly place too.”
The second person told the elder she also was moving to
Chicago, and asked if it was a friendly city. The elder replied,
“Do you think this town is friendly?” The woman said, “Yes, it’s a
friendly town, and I’m going to miss it.” The elder replied
“You’ll find Chicago a friendly place too.”
The other day I saw a quote from A Course in Miracles:
“Perception is a mirror, not a fact.”
Here’s Chief Joseph.
Wells Fargo’s customer service good or bad? Is Chicago a friendly
or unfriendly place? The answer is both.
But is Wells Fargo’s
customer service inherently good or bad? Is Chicago an inherently
friendly or unfriendly place? No.
As the A Course in
Miracles quote John read says, “reality” is perception, not
objective fact. Your perceptions are perfect mirrors of who you
Your reality is certainly
a fact to you. But not to everyone.
Friends, we’ve said this
many times over the years: You create your own reality. Some of
you are probably sick of hearing it. But it is, nonetheless, true.
You can either accept
your responsibility for creating all your life experiences. Or you
can make yourself a victim. In other words, you can empower or
disempower yourselves. It’s your choice.
You are all powerful
creators. You are divine. You are God. Whether you acknowledge
this or not, it is a real fact. Perhaps the only fact that ever
How can two people have
seemingly identical experiences and have such opposite,
conflicting recall? There really is no “objective” reality. There
is only your perception. You are totally free to perceive the
world around you as you please.
A common example of this
is two people who both know a third person. One thinks the third
person is a jerk. The other thinks he’s a saint.
What’s happening here is
the first person chooses to look at the faults in the third
person, and that’s all he sees. The second person looks only for
things to appreciate, and that’s all she sees.
This is such a
transparently obvious process. Yet so many humans don’t “get it.”
You are totally free to
create whatever experiences you want in your lives. Whether they
be your experiences of another person — or of Wells Fargo. That
freedom is the foundation of your power.
