Perception Defines Life
|by Mahesh Sharma|
Generally speaking, how do we see life, how do we distinguish between what is important and what is not? The society, the people seem to us the way we want to see them. Let's say the perception is like viewing through goggles. If the tint of the goggles is blue, the world appears blue, if its black the world too 'becomes' black. You want to see poverty, you see it, you want to see/feel corruption and you get that and if you want to see Happiness you can see that too!
Life can be as big and important as you make it out to be. Or it can be as small and insignificant as you perceptions define it. I disagree with those people who sit out there saying, it's all destiny. May be it is destiny after all, still it does not give us the leisure to sit and do nothing.
There are two types of people
Both viewpoints are correct. It all has to do with how you see things. Some people tend to see things as humongous and complex; others see things as humble and simple.
How do you categorize the world that we live in and the people we live with?
My perception is that world and people cannot be or should not be distinguished ' people are what make the world a home, from a house.
Is that world, Loving/Loyal/ Selfless/Humane/Cooperative or Detesting/Disloyal/Opportunistic/Inhumane/Non-Cooperative?
All things, all experiences, all challenges, all relationships, can be perceived differently on different levels, so that what might seem like a negative situation on one level, can be experienced as a positive in a higher state of consciousness. It can be an experience of growth, of greater awareness, and of greater development of loving abilities, such as a greater compassion and understanding.
There are 4 stages every human being has
The first condition is what we should be adopting. Let's analyze the last condition, the most dangerous amongst all.
I am NOT OK; You are NOT OK
Let us analyze how this situation arises and what are the parameters leading to this. (I am leaving the 2nd and 3rd to be perceived by the reader him/herself).
1. Happiness (Rather our perception of Happiness)
2. Hatred - One of the most virulent energy substances
