Perception is a “Personal Thing”

 Perception is a unique thing- no‌ ‌two‌ ‌person's‌ ‌realities‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌-‌totally‌ ‌identical‌ ‌at‌ ‌a‌ ‌given‌ ‌time.‌ ‌ ‌ ‌

When‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌“mindful”‌-

we‌ ‌not‌ ‌only‌ ‌see‌,

but‌ ‌also perceive;‌ ‌

we‌ ‌not‌ ‌only‌ ‌live‌,

‌but‌ ‌also‌ ‌experience.

‌‌We‌ ‌experience‌ ‌actual‌ reality‌ ‌through‌-

the‌ ‌filter‌ ‌of‌ ‌our‌ ‌personal‌ ‌realities.

Perception is a “personal thing.”

Out‌‌dated‌ ‌perception‌ ‌is‌ ‌like‌-

‌time‌ ‌glue‌ ‌that‌ ‌keeps‌ ‌us ‌still‌- ‌

while‌ ‌the‌ ‌rest‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌world‌ ‌moves‌ ‌on‌.

‌It‌ ‌is‌ ‌only‌ our ‌perception‌ ‌of‌ -‌

what‌ ‌happened‌ ‌that‌ ‌is‌ ‌relevant.

It’s about ‌how‌ we ‌are‌ ‌going‌ ‌to‌-

‌respond‌ ‌to‌ ‌"what‌ ‌happened."‌

which‌ ‌influence‌ ‌we ‌would‌ ‌make‌ ‌to‌-

‌the‌ ‌surroundings.

Perception‌ ‌is‌ personal -

it’s our ‌interpretation‌ ‌of‌-

‌the‌ ‌reality;

based‌ ‌on‌-

‌our‌ ‌conditioning,‌

‌beliefs,‌ ‌insight,‌ ‌or‌ ‌

surroundings,‌ ‌etc.


perception is-

perhaps like a distorting mirror-

prevent us from seeing the truth objectively.

Perception‌ ‌matters‌-

it ‌reflects‌ ‌who‌ we are‌;

‌which‌ ‌lens‌ we apply‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌-‌

the‌ ‌judgment‌ ‌of‌ ‌others

or the view of the world.

Perception is a unique thing-

no‌ ‌two‌ ‌person's‌ ‌realities‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌-

‌totally‌ ‌identical‌ ‌at‌ ‌a‌ ‌given‌ ‌time.‌ ‌ ‌ ‌

Being‌ ‌stick‌ ‌to‌ ‌who‌ we ‌are‌ ‌-‌ ‌

be‌ ‌authentic‌ ‌to‌ ‌close‌ ‌the‌ ‌gap‌-

‌between‌ ‌self-perception‌ ‌and‌ ‌how‌ ‌

others’‌ ‌perception‌ ‌of‌ us.

Perception ‌is‌ ‌a subjective‌ ‌thing-

from‌ ‌person‌ ‌to‌ ‌person; ‌

tell the story from our perspective.

Perception‌ ‌is‌ ‌always‌ ‌flawed‌ ‌-‌

‌it‌ ‌is‌ ‌not‌ ‌absolutely‌ ‌true,‌ ‌but‌- ‌

it‌ ‌is‌ ‌what‌ ‌we believe‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌true.‌

Perception is a “personal thing.”
