Skull Illusion - Compliments of Google
Perception is Projection

Perception. It's a funny little thing that seems to create our entire reality, and determines how we live.

What I have come to realise is that we each share a different view based on our past experiences, and this along with a few other things is what makes us different from one another.

I love that old saying "There are always three sides to a story...your side, their side and the truth." This is very true, because even if you are telling the truth about your side of the story in a situation, it is only based on your perception of the event. It is your reality, and no one else's. The other person's perception of what took place could be entirely different based on how they feel about a number of different things, which are in turn based on their past experiences and what they have learned.

Have you ever noticed that we tend to flock toward like minded people? Why is this? Perhaps it could be that it causes less friction between you? Their reality is similar to yours, and they live and see things the way that you do?

I'm sure that almost everyone has found themselves discussing other people and situations or events that you both do not understand or agree with. And it felt good didn't it? Some might refer to this as bitching. But what if it really is just humans trying to feel safe in their own reality? Is it that we need confirmation from others that our perception is accurate?

This is where compassion comes in. I guess the best way to get along with as many people possible, and to understand their differences is to become aware of the human condition in all its intricacies by recognising that each and everyone shares a different view; and this is their truth. Perhaps if we opened our minds to other people's realities and perception, we could understand them better.

It's a difficult thing to do...to see things from another point of view, but what an amazing journey it would be if we were to step outside of our own one track realm, and discover the places where others live. We don't have to stay there. Just visit from time to time and form an understanding. See what they see. And this may in turn inspire others to feel safe in stepping over to have a look at our view.

Compassion is very important I believe. It breaks down barriers, and allows us to cross over to the other side. We don't all have to agree with one another, but I think it would be very beneficial to be able to understand where other people are coming from. There would be less friction, less hate, and less debate.

Do you see what I see? It doesn't really matter if you do, just as long as you are willing to let me show you...
