Valuable percpetions

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.

    Made me consider how I should respond to my wife’s coughing, her having COPD. Thanks for your good thoughts.
