Perception is Everything

There is no truth to anything, and everything is created out of belief. Perception is everything, and most of it occurs in the subconscious mind. There is no need to deny that anything is happening – indeed denial and repression only create more of what one is trying to deny or repress.

The key to using perception to create peace is acceptance of ‘What is’. Acceptance is born out of the realization that everything perceived is the physical culmination of all thought energy that has been projected before.

The things that ‘happen’ are not really fortunate or unfortunate, they are a blessing of physical manifestation that precisely reflect back the states of mind that have been created by consciousness. The opportunity to create peace is in the moment of disturbing thought – where one can feel the emotion that has been evoked by perception, remember that consciousness is responsible for all that IS, and embrace their feeling with silence of thought.

This evokes God Consciousness (ie all encompassing love), which creates a wave of compassion in the body, immediately dissolving one’s disturbing feelings. By allowing disturbance to be replaced with compassion, one’s energy shifts from projecting for more dis-ease to projecting for love/peace/joy.

With practice and persistence, one begins to notice a more peaceful mind, and the more peaceful the mind becomes, the more peaceful the world becomes. After all the world is only a reflection of mind – there is only one mind – and the mind is not separate from who ‘we’ are.

You and Me

I’ve heard or this line several times throughout my lifetime: “Here’s to you and here’s to me, and I hope we never disagree. But, if that should ever be, to HELL with you, here’s to ME!”

[Everyone is just a conscious part of the same energy that creates everything.  Separation is an illusion.  If you have not yet been exposed to this concept, please Click Here]

Saying “to HELL with YOU” is the same saying to “HELL with ME”!! I would change it to “if we ever part ways, I will send you LOVE and ask that YOU do the same for ME”…but that wouldn’t be as funny!

The original line is great because it exposes a huge source of human suffering – the illusion that we are separate from everything else.  This view of self is the number one reason for tumultuous relationships, whether those relationships are between two people or two countries.

If we disagree and even part ways with people while still loving ourselves and everyone else, we will find peace of mind and make a difference toward a more peaceful world.
