Daril Atkins Posted over 1 year ago Do we become a person by imitating him / her? This is dangerous ground and a strategy that could backfire. We understand the posturing and the reactions of the onlookers to that posture. In imitation of itimidating postures one could possibly fool some but not all. However once you begin to pretend postures, you will fool your mind which will take a hold of that as a belief. Until someone calls your bluff. Ancient wisdom tells us that we become what we see in ourselves. Modern wisdom is telling us that we can pretend posture and feel likewise. Beware on both counts. The movie HAL illustrates this point well.
