Alphabet soup for the soul vol.2  –“P”

P is for Perspective

“Your perspective is always limited by how much you know. Expand your knowledge, and you will transform your mind”                – Bruce H. Lipton-

The world we see depends 100% on our perception.

Our perspective of life shapes the reality we see at all times.

The way a mountain looks or a stormy sky appears is determined by what we perceive at that moment.  

If we perceive life as not having enough or that life is scary, unsafe or fearful,  that is what we will see.

If we see abundance all around us, we will find patterns of that everywhere in our life.

Albert Einstein said, “the most important decision we make is whether we live in a friendly or hostile universe.” A decision? Absolutely! We get to decide what our reality is created from, starting with how we perceive the world.

What do we watch, read and see? What are we put into your mind?

Once we see the world a certain way, we form beliefs that wrap around that perception.

How can two men both have their legs blown off in a war, and one is grateful because he did not die, yet the other one becomes depressed and suicidal? Of course, the same thing happened to both men, but their perception of the event and the world they occupy determines how they respond.

We have learned about fixed mindset vs growth mindset, and it is similar to the idea of perception. So if we perceive that we can not learn and grow, then we will not; if we believe in a growth mindset, then that’s what we will perceive.

Our world is arranged by perception, and what we believe inside will manifest as an outer reality. similarly, what we see in our world is a

The way we perceive the world will ultimately determine how we approach life. If we see the world as a place where there is not enough to go around, then we will isolate ourselves from love and adventure and live a life of lack and scarcity.

Sounds and sight are electrical signals that are sent to our brain so that our brain can make a guess of what is actually happening. That “guess” becomes our reality.

Depending on our perception, we will form a belief, so the only question is whether you want to live in a friendly or hostile universe?

  1. Wonderful post about a subject very close to my heart. Interestingly enough, your image shows a headset for virtual reality..which really is just another form of reality (in my perception) but in the book, “Infinite Reality: Avatars, Eternal Life, New Worlds and The Dawn of The Virtual Revolution, Jim Blascovich states that our brain processes and perceives virtual reality in the same way it processes “real reality” (whatever that is..) It does not make a distinction…Interesting
