I once thought the words Perspective and Perception were very similar, however the definitions of these words are rather different.
A mental view or outlook.
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.
A while back I was drawn to the word Sovereign, however I never Truly knew what it fully meant until now. One of the definitions is as such:
1. Self-governing; independent.
This Resonates with Me completely! It has for as long as I Have been Alive! I know many of You Feel the same way. Think of a time where You were intimidated, or forced to Do some thing(We always Have a Choice) however fear dominates many of Us, including Me. How did You Feel in those moments? Many things will come up such as, Helpless, afraid, weak, scared… The point is, We are all capable of Being the only authority in Our Life! All it comes down to is Being fully Responsible for every thing You Experience!
I Have brought this up in previous posts titled Freedom and Responsibility=Freedom.
There are many gurus, or so-called masters out there saying they know the way to Freedom, or Living a Sovereign Life, however many of them are not Free themselves. I Can only think of a few who Have mastered this, and continue to master it. I Am going to Share two that I Respect completely.
1) Vic Beck
2) David MacGregor
They both Have similar and conflicting views, however I know they are both coming from one place, and that is Love for Helping others Discover Their True Sovereign Self!
Let Me tell You a little story. A while back, I read “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. At first it was much to take in, however I read it again just the other night, more began to sink in! Besides Learning more and more as I plan to read this book over time. Yesterday I Received a offer in My email inbox(I tend to Receive many offers for thisÂ¬â€ and that, to which most of them I accept). This offer was to GIVE away this Powerful book for FREE!
I Laughed to My Self, Thinking what are the chances I Am reading this book for the second time in My Life, and Receive a Awesome offer that GIVES this Amazing book away to any One who Desires to read it, andÂ¬â€ further Empower them Self!

I Do Honestly Believe this is a Great offer Being presented here, as You will Receive way more than what Think at the moment!
This word seemed to elude Me for several years until yesterday. It got Me Thinking that Paradigms, are synonymous with habits and Beliefs. The definition for a Paradigm is as follows: One that serves as a pattern or model, and A set of assumptions, concepts, values, practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality for the community that shares them, especially in an intellectual discipline.
Now it seems to Me that when One holds a Paradigm that does not serve them in any way, even though it is some thing that may Be Comfortable to them, Your Life will continue to flow in the direction of the Paradigm. Lets say You were taught or Experienced a certain fear when growing up, such as the fear of heights. Think back to when You were Free of that fear… Now Think of when that fear came to Be… If You are Having difficulty in pinpointing when this was, or how it became to Be a fear. Simply relax, and clear Your mind of Thoughts. This is easily done by focusing on Your in and out breathes. You will notice when the only Thought You are holding during this process is that of which You wish to Remember, that memory will come to You with Ease.
The point of all this is to Have You notice that every thing We Experience and Perceive filters through Our Paradigms. Another example that was Given to Me was, how is it when People speak of skin color they refer to dark skinned People as “black”, and light skinned People as “white”. When if You really notice that the dark skinned People are a dark shade of brown, and the white skinned are more of a light shade of brown. However We see what We Choose to see, and usually We see what is not Truly there, based upon Our Paradigms!
You may Be wondering, how Do I change a Paradigm that is not serving Me Well? Like I stated above, Paradigms are synonymous with habits, Simply Create a new habit! Start small, and move Your way up from there. We all Have routines, whether We Believe that or not, We all Do. Now if some one, or You interrupt a routine even slightly, most of Us tend to get un-Comfortable for a Moment until We fall back into Our groove again. It has been said that when You are un-Comfortable with some thing, that You are Doing some thing right in way of changing a Paradigm, for once You break through the un-Comfort, that new Paradigm will soon become Comfortable, and Compliment what You Desire out of Life.
I Have noted before some where that “Your Life is working Perfectly for the way You Think!” and this is completely True, whether You Like it or not. Your thoughts Create Your Reality! So I suggest Being Aware of what You are Thinking if You Desire to Experience more of what You Dream about!
In the past this topic was pretty controversialÂ¬â€ to Me, and I know it is to many others as well today! However, I Have released the Belief that others control My Well Being and Existence. Freedom Truly is from Simply letting go of limiting Beliefs, specifically from the ego.
I actually wrote about this sorta thing back in November of 2009, check it out at:
I listened to a audio titled “Your Wish is Your Command” by Kevin Trudeau, it was rather lengthy and full of useful In-Formation! I highly recommend You listen to it! The basis of the audio is on ‘The Law of Attraction’, however it focuses on what You Have not heard and/or read about in the many videos, audios, seminars, webinars, and books available today. And if You Have noticed almost all the People that tell You about this law are not Successful, Wealthy, Happy, and the money they are making is from selling You the theory of the law. The funny thing is the books that are supposedly written by the so called Elite, did not write the book themselves, they had some one else write it for them. Another thing is the ones Who know this info are really protective in keeping this True Knowledge of the Law of Attraction a secret.
Now here is the one of the many things they keep secret from You, and You must Do this regardless of any situation/event You are involved in, in Your Life is ‘Feel Good’ always! You may think, or say “As if!?”. Simply Give it a try, think of a moment in the past that made You Feel Incredibly Good, and hold that Feeling for as long as possible. While Doing that think of what You Truly Desire, pick some thing tangible, Like a coffee, muffin, donut, 5 dollars, etc…The real trick to this is to really BELIEVE You already Have the item and/or non-physical item in Your Existence Now. And see what comes into Your Experience as result of this secret.
I Have tested this so called theory out, many times, and it has worked on many small to large items almost every time. The reason I write ‘almost’ is because I know in those instances that I did not Receive what I Desired was do to the fact I had doubt I was going to get it. Now Imagine Being taught this when You were growing up! This is what the so called “Super Rich” and “Elite” Have been raised into. Their Beliefs are solid on what they can Manifest, Simply cause they Do not know the contrast to that Belief.
We all possess this Ability, it is not limited to just the so called Elite! And the Best thing about the law of Attraction is it always works! Think about that for a moment… You may say “If it works all the time, then how come I some times get what I Do not Like?!”, the Simplest answer to that is because You focused on what You did not Desire, hence You made it come to Fruition! So always focus on what You Do Desire! Another trick to this process is always Be Aware of what You Desire, and what I mean about that is, when the Opportunity arises Be Aware that You asked for it some time in the past.
Now back on the subject of secret societies (that title is kind of a oxymoron, in the way that those societies are not very secret at all). The Benefit of Being in one of these secret societies is You are surrounded by Positive thinking Beings constantly, and You are always Networking Ideas, and Opportunities amongst Your Peers. Now I know You Have been told and/or read about these societies such as the Free Masons, Trilateral Commission, Illuminati, Skull and Bones, etc… And they are causing all the problems on this Planet, however I disagree with that whole Heartedly. Reason Being is the only way they can cause any thing to You is if You allow it. Especially if You Give focus to some thing outside of You is in control. I Do agree there are some People with this Knowledge that use it for negative Purposes and I Can Assure You that they Live very negative Lives as result of it.
If You wish to know more about these societies Simply click on either the logo above, or the link below. And again I highly recommend You listen to the audio “Your Wish is Your Command” by Kevin Trudeau. It explains in more detail what I wrote about in this article.

*** Remember all that I write about is strictly opinion, and that is all any one Can ever offer You in any regards! ***
I remember some where I read, or heard that ‘Inspired’ is Being ‘In Spirit’. Which now to Me makes sense. The Latin Definition uses words like ‘Thunder-Struck, Stunned, Frantic…’. The English Dictionary defines it as ‘Of such surpassing brilliance or excellence as to suggest divine inspiration, aroused or guided by or as if aroused or guided by divine inspiration, and extremely accurate or apt but based on intuition rather than knowledge or logical deduction’ . This is cool as well, when You break the word a part, You get In, and Spire. In has various meanings, the one for this context is ‘To, Toward’. And Spired means ‘A top part or point that tapers upward; a pinnacle’.
Those definitions seem to all point to a Source (A God if I may). I find this rather intriguing to write the least. For example when I say “Some thing Inspired Me to Do that!”, or “You Inspire Me!”. What Do You think of when You read those statements? I personally think of some thing outside of My Self guided Me,. What? I Am unsure. The word it Self points to in side of You , and some thing out side influences.
Think back to a moment that Inspiration had happened. It is kind of weird really, and powerful. To think some thing beyond logic, aided You in some thing at that moment, which may have seemed impossible. It happens more frequent than one may think about. For instance, this website. All this came to Me out of Inspiration, Honestly! The name Umattr, all the content I write. It is rather Incredible really!
Being Inspired is a Connection to a Source that is most Valuable. When You let go of the ego momentarily, or permanently,Â¬â€ that is when You will find Inspiration happens most definitely! The ego is a wall between Us and what ever Created Us,. False identity is the ego, drop the ego and You will Be Your True Self! That is rather Inspiring 🙂
This came to Me the other day, and I was wondering is this even possible any more? ‘Being Original’ that is. I pondered it for a bit, and realized that “Yes it is!”. We are all ‘Being Original’ in every moment, even when some one believes “You copied that from some one else!”.
Take for example Me doing this website, it has and is Being done all over the World as You read this. But what makes it Original is it is coming from Me! I Am unique, as are You, and any one else for that matter. No thing can be copied or duplicated exactly, EVER!!! This is rather powerful, just when You may have thought every thing has been done, You can be rest assured that it never has or ever will be.
You may try and find things that contradict these statements, and that is fine. It is virtually impossible to have a exact moment happen, again, and again, and so forth… That in truth is calming to Me. It means We are always growing! And I do not know about You, but I feel growth is better than it’s polar opposites.
So what is the point of this article, well in the past I was rather frustrated with many people re-quoting what people had said in the past, and thought to My Self, the person who is currently re-quoting does not fully know if the so called ‘Original’ quote is word for word. And there is no way of verifying this, for every thing in the past that is recorded is done from memory, and if You may not know memory is never exact due to the fact each one of Us perceive things truly different! The way I see or think some thing, will always be different than the way You see or think it. And We will never know how any one sees or thinks some thing because it is ultimately unique to You only.
So next time some one says “Be Original!”, You can think to Your Self “I Am!” 🙂
This was brought to My attention the other day. And it just dawned on Me as True right now! If We all were Responsible for every thing We did, then there would Be no requirement for government, police, military… You get the picture.
This concept is Easy to grasp, when You realize most problems/issues stem from lack of Responsibility.
For example, when You point blame on some one, or some thing You Chose to Do. Really Think about that, You Have a Choice in every thing You Do, say, and Think. No one forces You to Do, say, and Think any thing. You are in control, but then You will Think of a million scenarios to contradict those statements. Those are excuses, and those excuses stem from the avoidance of Responsibility.
Now You know why We Have government, We lack Responsibility, To Self-Govern is a Choice many of Us avoid. You may say “What about the People that Choose to cause chaos?”, well I can almost guarantee they were possibly raised to be very dependent on others to Do things for them, and point blame. I Am not blaming any Parents for raising their Children to Be non-Responsible(To Be Honest You Can not Teach that, You need to Discover it Your Self), because they were raised that way as well, and so on… I was that way too in the past, always blaming stuff outside of Me for any thing that went on in My Life. But for a while now, I have Chosen to Be fully Responsible for all of My actions, speaking, and Thoughts. And I can tell You with Confidence that My Life is much Better for Doing so. At first it took some time getting use to the whole concept, but after I made it a habit, and routine, it is common place with Me.
It’s funny, I scraped My truck bumper on the pillar in Our parkade on Thanksgiving day, I was bummed out about it at first, but I did not blame any thing or any one else for My mishap. I Thought about the whole incident in My Mind, and how I could Have blamed the Person who parks beside Me for possibly parking too close to My stall, causing Me to turn wider than usual, or I could have blamed the pillar for being in a stupid spot! There are a million excuses I could Think of, but what Good does it Do. It still happened, and I was the one Responsible for it.Truly, if I had not been out operating My truck, then it would have never happened. Making Me fully Responsible for the incident. I Am completely fine with it.
It is Calming to realize that You are in control of Your Experiences. When You start Being Responsible for every thing in Your Life, then You are Truly Free!
That is Freedom!
What to say about “death”? I know We all experience the loss of some one, or some thing in some form, or another. I also know that We will have it happen to Us some day. My question is “why is death so mis under stood?” What I mean by that is, why do a lot of Us know so little about this inevitable event? I believe it has to do with Our choice to ignore it, and the lack of information on it.
A lot of Us are scared of death. Being scared is usually based upon the belief of uncertainty. In order to release that fear, You can choose to educate Your Self about it, or choose not to believe it at all. I remember reading a quote that stated “Die before You die!”, meaning imagine Your death and all that proceeds it. The reason, I believe they say to do this, is so You can try, and become more familiar with death, and embrace the fact that it will happen.
I have in the last 4 years known quite a number of close people passing on. It seems to come in waves, I had never experienced the loss of any thing except a pet, up until four years back. I guess You could say I have been fortunate to not have experienced this, Although I have mixed emotions on this. Reason being is, I wish not have any one close, or any one for that matter die, but that is a egotistical thing to think. Really it is Me, having a hard time allowing that person to move on, to where ever it is We go after death.
I Am becoming more and more at ease with the process of people around Me passing. You may think, “Matt, that is a insensitive thing to think!” I use to think that as well, but over time, and as more and more people around Me pass on. I have come to realize it is just Me being Selfish in thinking they have to stay around for Me. Really think about that, it is Us that get upset when others pass away. And I believe it is perfectly normal and fine, We are Beings of habits and routines, and when those habits, routines are changed not by choice, We tend to get rather upset about it. But there are people that continue to dwell on the fact that others have left them, or some thing took them away from them. The reason for this article is not to judge and/or insult how You go about Your grieving, and/or how long it takes to grieve, but to provide You awareness of how We are before, during and after the process of death.
I miss those who use to be around Me, and at the same time admire where they have journeyed to. For one day, I to will be there, but now I know, I Am no longer afraid for it to happen.
This is more common than I have known in the past. For example I hesitate to buy things some times based on the fear I might not have money, silly but true. We tend to have fear do to the fact some thing happened to Us in the past, and now every time a similar scenario presents it Self, We view that experience on what happened in the past.
This sucks, to be honest. Because it prevents Us from experiencing every thing a new. If You really think about it, every moment is truly unique. You may think there are similar moments but truly they are all different. The only reason it may seem the same is because You are playing the same movie of what happened before in Your mind in that moment. Take for instance when You were a Child, and You had yet to discover fire for Your Self. When You first saw it, it was foreign to You. You were curious, so like all curious Children You explore. You eventually touch the fire, and get burned or experience extreme heat. From that moment forward You will remember that experience, and have a completely different view on fire. You will be some what afraid of it, avoid getting burned. This goes for every thing in Our lives.
Beliefs are formed by these past experiences. Our beliefs shape what We choose to perceive in Our moments of consciousness. Some serve You well, many do not! Think of some beliefs You have that hinder Your from doing what You would Love to do. There are ways to change those beliefs easily, and painlessly. One method I like is called “Psych-K”, and it was developed by Rob Wlliams. It uses kinesioiogy to help verify and correct specific beliefs You have. So this brings Us back to what I started with, “fear in doing”. It really all stems from Your beliefs, change those to beliefs that serve You better, than You will do with out fear! To find out more on the “Psych-K” method click on the link below, or the picture above.
