Our perceptions affect our thoughts and actions.
How do we tell the difference between material perceptions and spiritual perceptions?
Then, how do we value spiritual perceptions?
I came up with a few examples:
A material perception of the weather is a “nice, sunny day.” A spiritual perception is “symbols of movement and life.”
A material perception of my cat is “shedding hair.” A spiritual perception is “radiating calm and relaxed.”
A material perception of my job is “writing newspaper articles and editing words.” A spiritual perception is “expressing honesty and insight.”
To value the spiritual perceptions, I acknowledge them first, then take the attributes of movement, life, calmness, honesty, and insight and see them when cleaning the house and cooking dinner and running errands.
