The Power Of Perception!
The dictionary defines perception as “the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses.”
Question be what are you perceiving? And is what you are perceiving beneficial to you?
We observe from our brain, not our eyes. It is the brain to then send signals to the eyes as to what to perceive.
Our perception is according to our awareness, beliefs, habits, etc. One person may perceive death as a loss, whereas another person’s perspective on death could be that it is a new beginning
It is all up to the observer on how they choose to perceive their reality and have it affect them.
Another example is the caterpillar and the butterfly. The caterpillar experiences the cocoon stage as an ending, whereas the butterfly experiences the cocoon stage as a beautiful new beginning. In this case, it is the awareness of the caterpillar and butterfly to have them perceive the experience in the cocoon as they do.
The great part about perception is that we have the power of choice as to what we choose to perceive.
In the image in the link below you are able to see the train moving in either direction depending on what you tell yourself to see.
First look at the pic and see the train going into the tunnel. (This may take a few seconds or so.)
Once you have successfully seen the train going into the tunnel, now switch your perception to see the train going in the opposite direction and coming out of the tunnel. (This may take a few seconds to happen as well.)
If you cannot see the train going in both directions as you choose to perceive, keep looking, you will eventually be able to make the train change direction.
This is proof of the power of your perception. And that you have the power to control what and how you perceive things. You have just proven that to yourself with the picture in the link.
Now you have the awareness to use this method of perception switching when it comes to life situations that you will face.
Life and its experiences can either make you or break you. The choice is yours. Always has been and always will be.
The question is will you accept your power and use it to your advantage?
