    PERCEPTION IS REALITY....WRONG....PERCEPTION CREATES REALITY

    in Religion

    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.

    power of perception with Paul Hume Brewster

    in Spirituality

    had studied to be an accountant, but found the business world not to be of my liking, so became a teacher of accounting instead, and taught for 22 years before retiring at 57 to write about what I had learned over a period of approximately 25 – 30 years. I had bought many spiritual books in which I found the answers I was seeking, and spent many years studying them, particularly A Course in Miracles and Love Without End – Jesus Speaks, authored by Glenda Green. I came to understand that much of what we have been taught by the church and the sciences that dealt with the universe was open to question, and in the end, had a strong desire to put my thoughts about the universe, the mind/body relationship, ego, and consciousness into a book where I could draw all that I’d read in other spiritual books together so as to bring a more unified understanding of who we are, what our purpose is, and the reason we are here to the people, and so wrote The Profound Truth of Divine Existence – A New Modern Teaching.
    I have not openly discussed much of what is in the book I have written with people, except for my youngest son. He became a sounding board for my concepts and ideas, and I spent a number of years talking with him during the evenings at home here, in order to hear what he thought of them, and to also clarify in my own mind how to present them in a manner that could be understood by those who sought the spiritual path to life. Some of it is quite complex, and requires an open mind if one wishes to accept the concepts into their being.
    I have written my second book Innocent and True Perception, but it has not been published yet, and probably won’t be until later in the year, as I wish to see how my first book goes.

    Power of Perception with Jamie Blue Sun Yellow Sky

    in Spirituality

    Here's a little bit about the book:


     


    Hailed as “One of the best technical painters of our time” by an L.A. Times critic, 27-year-old Aubrey Johnson is finally gaining traction with her work. But as she weaves through what should be a celebration of her art, a single nagging echo of her doctor’s words refuses to stay silent—there is no cure. In less than eight weeks Aubrey is going blind. 

    Traveling on a one-way ticket around the world with childhood friend Jeff Anderson, Aubrey is in complete denial. But a blindfolded game of tasting foreign foods in China jolts her into confronting the reality of her situation. So begins her quest. 

    In this adult coming-of-age story, Aubrey struggles to make sense of her crippling diagnosis. But on her journey she finds a deeper understanding of herself and her life—sometimes fragmented and complex, but always with relentless truth. 


     


    The theme of the book is perception. It's about how our perceptions are changed by circumstances we have no control over and how overcome obstacles by changing the way we perceive new challenges

    Reality and Faith - Perception

    in Atheism

    In this re-airing, blogger Sacerdotus addressed the atheist attack that theists are not "in reality" or that believing in God or having faith is alien to reality.  Using physics and philosophy, Sacerdotus refutes this argument and shows that reality is nothing more than charged particles, force fields, empty space and how our brains interpret these electrical charges in order to contruct the world.  In light of this, we have trust or faith that what our brains perceive is really what exists.  


    Philosophers of the past have gotten pretty close to realizing what reality really is via metaphysicals.  Moreover, physics has confirmed most of their thought experiments.  Claiming that those who believe in God are not in reality is a silly statment to make.  Sacerdotus explains why this fallacious reasoning does not hold water against physics and metaphysics.

    power of perception with Steven L. Hairfield

    in Spirituality

    ving been raised in a very abusive environment, I decided to serve my country in the military. My duties and expertise led me to Vietnam. My search for peace and higher understanding led me to a Zen Buddhist Monastery in South Vietnam, my first encounter with monks and their traditions. I became a Zen Priest through this experience. My natural curiosity, blended with a very acute intuitive sense led me to deeper questions of life and the purpose of self. The monks began to insist that I should learn of Issa? I later learned that Issa, Jesus, had spent much time in what is now known today as India, Pakistan, Ladak, Nepal, and Tibet before returning to the Middle East. Was Jesus taught what He knew? This truly inspired my personal search for knowledge to somehow recreate the Master’s 18 years not mentioned in the Bible. Pushed by this dream for Universal Truth, I traveled to India following an inner urge which led me to my greatest teachers and lessons, Tibetan Masters. They guided me through India, Nepal, and twice into Tibet. While in this part of the world I adapted to the life of a monk.


     


                When I returned home after working with my Eastern teachers I wanted to understand the belief system and studied the greatest belief system of all Religion and Theology, becoming quite interested and fascinated by the field of Metaphysics in the process. Through my years of studies with Zen and Tibetan Monks as well as the Cree and Blackfoot Native Traditions, this true American Monk offers an unparalleled approach to understanding how we directly influence our own experiences. My journey was one of self Mastery, Empowerment while achieving an inner Divine nature. My book is entitled ‘A Metaphysical Interpretation
