Perception is way more important than reality.
My seventeen year-old son James and I were talking nearly playing tennis this weekend and our focus went to the method it feels to hit a tennis ball with the racquet. I described it as such as swinging a badminton racquet with the strings and the sweet spot removed from the grip by a stem. He described the feeling as such as swinging a ping pong paddle with the strings and the sweet spot related and adjacent to the grip.
It surprised us both that some other may perhaps decide the experience differently when the tennis racquets we tremendously play with have an equal design. Neither of us had ever appeared that anyone may perhaps decide the experience differently. We concluded that the most likely reason at the back of it was that I learned tennis in the early nineteen seventies when the racquets were made of timber and tremendously had a stem between the strings and the grip and he learned tennis in the early 2000s when the fiberglass racquets all had oversized heads.
This is a tremendously realistic illustration of a tremendously important concept. Perceptions of anything and anyone are choice for each one of us. If realistic bodily objects appear choice to each one of us, assume how differently invisible objects appear to us, like energy, magnetism, wind, heat, heaviness, gravity, the Law of Attraction, the scale of the universe, our health, loss of life, love, and God.
Certainly, if our perceptions are choice, then our emotional responses may be choice as well. Our emotions around objects, ideas, and personalities can fluctuate from comfort to discomfort, worry to ease, fear to desire, love to … well, lack of love.
Jumping into a swimming pool and feeling the relative temperature of the water appear differently to each one of us, just as leaping into a relationship, a new occupation, or a new idea. Our notion nearly our existing relationships, our health, money, our role at work, and our role in the world will additionally be choice. We all have comfort levels and fears around choice matters and experiences. Clearly this has something to do with our previous experiences too, and none of us have had equal previous experiences.
The bottom line is this: settle for that each one of has a special perspective and notion nearly everything. That is okay. In verifiable truth which is first-rate. That is what allows living on this planet to be such a spectacular experience. Dont waste any time trying to gets everybody else to agree with you, because founded on their differing notion they never if truth be told can precisely agree anyway.
There is so much to experience, and so many sorts of of us to experience it with. Enjoy the adventure with people that just a little agree with you and have similar perceptions concerning the world, yet also enjoy the adventure with people who have exclusively differing perceptions concerning the world and look to disagree nearly most matters.
This kind of places a ideal spin on the ideas of religion and politics, doesnt it?
