Real or an illusion of your mind that is still the question to be answer about perception.
There is a well know saying that suggests that perception is, in fact, reality.
Do you think you are your perception of self or not.
No matter how most thinking people might laugh off such a notion, the fact is that for the normal mind, reality is just that – the sum total of your perceptions.
How we perceive the world, how it works and our place in it dictates how we behave. Most importantly of all, our own self-perception creates our reality – or, at least, our version of it.
The normal person’s version of reality is very sad indeed – in comparison to the world full of excitement and opportunity that is before your very eyes… were you of a mind to open them.
I have work with People that often tell me that they lack self-discipline, self-confidence, self-esteem or that they are too self-deprecating.
There are a lot of ‘self’s’ in that last sentence and none of them provide us with a real insight into the problem – because none of these perceived inadequacies have anything to do with the self. These ‘self’-descriptors relate to personality, not self.
Personality, derived from the Latin word, persona, meaning a mask, is not even a figment of your own imagination. It is the sum total of all the things that impressed you for better and, more often, for worse, during your formative years and beyond.
Now, as an adult, you’re stuck with your preconceived notions regardless of the blatantly obvious fact that your formative years are long gone and are of little practical input to the here and now.
So discard the false perceptions that are holding you back. Discard them by focusing in the here and now. When you do, you’ll be present – and those with presence always make just the right impression that will lead them to where they want to go in life.
The answer to do you think you are your perception of self or not lies in your own understanding of who you truly are…a spiritual person incarnated in a physical body.
