A trickster in our memory
This goes over the many ways that that trickster can alter how we perceive things, so it makes me aware of how I need to have a clear focus on what I want my reality to be.
I mean, First, were not experiencing things in real time. There is a time lapse between when the actual event happens and when our senses perceive those frequencies. After we receive the data, our brain has to interpret it.
Now, Our Brains interpretation is not a clear picture of reality , its interpretation is affected by all the past data that is stored in our brain from related past experiences and even from genetic information stored in our cells from the many generations before us.
So how can we be sure, that what we are seeing, “is how it is”, and not influenced from other sources?
Well , It doesn’t seem we can, but in knowing that our perceptions may not be fully accurate, we can understand how important it is be clear on what we are intending our reality to be, as anything else cannot be viewed as truly real.
But what is real anyway?
When you consider that an atom is 99.999% energy and only one very small fraction of a percent matter, then what are we really sensing anyway?
And then these tiny bits of matter don’t even exist, full time, they pop in and out of existence thousands of times a second transitioning back and forth from energy to matter to energy.
So what is it our senses are perceiving? Frequencies emitted from a cloud of tiny particles that don’t even exist half the time?
That once our senses perceive them, we interpret not only what is there but also everything our mind replays from all the associated data it has stored, and that data has an affect on our perception and can give input that makes us think something is, say more blue than it is, or less blue, compared to what we saw before.
I see this also as being a factor, In being self aware of our behaviors, and looking at ourselves.
We may not see our behavior as unacceptable because the behavior has been recorded so many times in our mind that we see it as the accepted norm so it doesn’t stand out to us.
So Knowing that our mind sees reality through past experiences, I can see how repetition is needed to change a habit. you have to record enough experiences in the new way of doing things, that when the brain plays back all its past memories the number of experiences it remembers of doing it the new way outweighs the recordings of the old habit.
Neville Goddard describes reality in an interesting way saying that “Truth is determined by intensity of imagination, not facts”
