Perspective and Perception


I once thought the words Perspective and Perception were very similar, however the definitions of these words are rather different.

Perspective:

A mental view or outlook.

Perception:

Insight, intuition, or knowledge gained by perceiving.

Now, when understanding these two words fully they bring to Light a whole new Perspective (Pun intended)!

Perspective is how You view Your Life through Your Senses, and Perception is the way You absorb the Experiences in Your Life, through Your Senses!

This is the kicker though, what is absorbed over time shapes Your Beliefs, hence skewing the way Your Perspective is to what You view. Hence Giving You a very unique view of Your Life, one that no one will ever know or understand.

You may Be wondering “Why does this matter to Me?”. Well, think of the cycle by which You are always viewing every thing in Your Life in every Moment? It gets Perceived, then filtered through a Belief system, which in turn skews Your Perspective, then gets perceived again, and goes through the same cycle which in turn is a bit different every time(however We often think it is the same).

This means You are always Growing no matter what, even when You Think Your Life is staying the same! It is very relieving to know We are always Growing, as I once thought before, much of society was stagnant and digressing.

Even if You did Your Best to prove this theory wrong, the mere fact at the attempt to discredit this, means You are Growing, and expanding Your Awareness! Ponder that notion a while 🙂

We all Have unique point-of-views, which all add to the Grand theme of Life! This Gives Me much Hope for Humanity in these supposed disHeartening times.

Enjoy!
