I am auditing a Retail Management Class at SUNY Oneonta. During the last class, the Professor repeated the idiom, “Our perception is our reality.” We classmates grasped his metaphor when applying it to customer service at a business. The customer is always right.
Later in the day, pushing the subject of perceptions and reality, I considered honing the ability to distinguish human perceptions from divine perceptions.
Human perceptions are debatable, but experience has taught me, divine perceptions resonate with a reality manifest as wisdom, balance, and spiritual power. I have to be careful though, because some really good human perceptions come across as divine.
Human perceptions come from the human ego―from fear and lack of knowledge. Human perceptions do not come from the brain. The brain is only an electronic device that measures a person’s human perceptions and displays the data, which may or may not be transmitted on a monitoring network.
Divine perceptions, however, come from divine Mind, they are spiritual intelligence and awareness.
Thankfully, the human ego can become transparent enough to allow an acknowledgement of divine perceptions. And if the human ego fights the divine, well, it won’t win. Human perceptions are linear, with a beginning and end.
Divine perceptions are ongoing. They already exist. We don’t have to formulate or visualize divine perceptions to make them real. The perception of spiritual power, normalcy, hope fulfilled, strength, and creativity is ours, is reality.
From 21st Century Science and Health:
“The brains electrochemical functioning is ignorant of the world of Truth—not wired to the reality of our existence—for the world of materiality is not cognizant of life in Soul.
“During a final conflict, nefarious minds will endeavor to find means by which to accomplish more evil. People who discern divine reality will hold crime in check; they will help in the ejection of error. They will maintain law and order, and cheerfully serve the certainty of ultimate perfection.
“Evil has no reality. Evil is not a person, place, or thing, but is in the end a belief, an illusion of human mortal perceptions.
“The doctor’s mind reaches that of the patient. So doctors: suppress your fear of disease, or else your belief in its reality and fatality will harm your patients even more than the chemotherapy, radiation, or morphine.
“Human beings ultimately cannot create their own reality—cannot presume the absence of spiritual Truth, Life, or Love.
“To become cognizant of the reality and order of being in its Science, you must begin by admitting Love as the divine Principle of all that really is.
