This edition of Perception Is Reality, hosted by Larry Goodman, Bill Behrens, and Trent Van Drisse, featured a guest appearance by Stephen Platinum, a lively discussion of the art booking long-term stories, dos and don'ts of developing wrestling characters, and A.J. Styles' current role in TNA.
When you give a red rose to your beloved on Valentine's Day, you have every right to say, "I made this for you." All the qualities that a rose possesses -- its velvety texture, its lush red color, even its thorns -- are real to us because our perception makes them real. Photons of light have no color, only frequencies and wavelengths. The point of a thorn has no sharpness. The scent of a rose isn't sweet when seen merely as airborne molecules. The reality of these specific qualities is tied to us. The brain processes electrochemical signals sent from photoreceptors in the eye to "create" the color red. Skin-encapsulated mechanosensory receptors send electrochemical signals that reassure us of a solid "material" world, but the prick of a thorn is created by our brain. Indeed we now know that the brain takes into account a number of factors to choose how much pain to create; varying any one of these factors can affect how prickly the same thorn is.
There is no provable link between "this is what I see" and "this is real." With a different brain comes a shift of perception, and everything about a rose would change. Roses exist in the world of snails that chew the leaves, aphids that suck the sap, moths that lay eggs in hidden crevices and cats that lurk underneath to wait for a bird to alight. But what these organisms experience is certainly not the rose for Valentine's Day. As humans we have no conceivable way of entering the perceptual world of those creatures. We can only imagine a link, and then we take our imagined similarities for granted.

What is Perception and how does it affect our reality as we know it? How do you perceive the world around you? Take a moment to think about all the things you perceive on a daily basis. Did you know your personal experiences, your emotional state of being can greatly affect how you perceive things and shape up your reality? At any given moment, you might see familiar objects in your environment, feel the touch of objects and people against your skin, smell the aroma of a home-cooked meal and hear the sound of music playing in your next door neighbor's apartment. All of these things help make up our conscious experience and allow us to interact with the people and objects around us.
Did know, Perception not only creates your experience of the world around you; but shapes your environment as well?

What does perception mean? Is it showing us reality? A Course in Miracles teaches that “I see nothing as it is now.” It also says that we are not upset for the reason we think.
As an EFT practitioner I know how true this is. I start tapping with one perception of why I am angry. When done, I see the situation completely different, without anger. This transformation of our way of seeing is why I do EFT tapping: because, “I am determined to see things differently.” (Lesson 21).
You respond to what you perceive, and as you perceive so shall you behave. The Golden Rule asks you to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This means that the perception of both must be accurate…You cannot behave appropriately unless you perceive correctly.
My problem is a misperception. When I release past and future associations, I see accurately, and the problem is gone. The Light of Truth, or Holy Spirit, in our mind, has the power to correct misperceptions.
The Holy Spirit begins by perceiving you as perfect, knowing this perfection is shared He recognizes it in others, thus strengthening it in both. Instead of anger this arouses love for both, because it establishes inclusion.
Perception can either lead us to joining and love; or separation and fear. One accurately reflects divine reality; the other miscreates a world where vulnerability and conflict are seen as normal and real.
Reality and perception are not in opposition as the title implies. Reality is all there is. Perception paints over the masterpiece with invisible paint, hiding it. But invisible paint can’t hide anything! We recognize this when we wake up to reality.

12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Angeline and myself have gotten TONS of emails about a VERY quick statement i made on the show where i said "Perception is reality.." We quickly changed topics and began to discuss something else.. But LOTS of listeners someone heard the comment and hung on to it... But we will be discussing today exactly what was meant by it and how i wanted it to be interpreted. Now i know to speak cautiously because you never know who is listening! LOL
I talked about Charlie Crist and politicians in general. The perception is reality for millions of Americans. We must question our politicians and also open our eyes and minds to deceptions in order to avoid these kind of people getting control.
We are always striving to be our best. We try everyday to do things better than we did before and then something happens and we question if that is the best we could have done. How do we know when we are in the best state of mind we can be in and how do we know if we are doing our best? We have grown to be so hard on ourselves that even the best days that we are here, living this life, we find what did not work before we look at what is working, and how does that affect us and our perception of who we are? Tune in and Join the Conversation Tomorrow Morning at 5:30 AM, PST and lets talk about living in the moment of who we are rather than the moments of the future that we never feel we can be or get to!

What is the Last Judgment? Is God’s Judgment like our own that appears to condemn? Or does it set us free from all error in perception, awakening the mind from its dream of separation to truth?
What makes a fearful world of separation is a mind that has judged it self to be different and separate from its Source. The end to this dream of fear is the Last Judgment, and our mind’s final recognition of its error, which had no effect on truth.
“This is God’s Final Judgment: ‘You are still My holy Son, forever innocent, forever loving and forever loved, as limitless as your Creator, and completely changeless and forever pure.’” Pg. 455 Lessons.
Today, with Eloisa Ramos and the guidance of Lessons 311 to 320 of ACIM, we accept God’s Last Judgment which makes subjective perception pointless. For we can judge and believe we are anything we want; and so, we will see it reflected back in the world, but it has no effect on truth.
“Christ’s Second Coming gives the Son of God this gift; to hear the Voice for God proclaim that what is false is false, and what is true has never changed. And this the judgment is in which perception ends.” Pg. 455 Lessons.
