It’s All About Perception

When I got on the computer this morning, I was tagged in a post on Facebook by Bex of Your Inner Sparkle asking for assistance in answering some questions that were posted on her page. There were some great questions posed and they offer an individual much to think about. As I was reading through them, I acknowledge that each individual’s perception will be the correct answer for them.

I thought I would share the questions and my responses here ~

What makes a person beautiful? ~ As the saying goes, “beauty is as beauty does.” A person can be perceived physically beautiful, but have an ugly personality meaning they are unkind and condescending to others. Our physical body is a protective shell for our soul. The beauty of our soul permeates this shell and that is what people truly see.

Can I live on both sides of that spectrum? ~ Not sure where this question is going, but I would like to say that balance is essential period.

Where does it lead before I go? ~ Not sure once again where this question is going, but my thoughts are that your life is a journey and you are the captain of the ship or the driver of the car, whichever analogy you prefer. In other words, you are creating your reality.

What’s on the other side? ~ Love, pure love. Whatever you can imagine is on the other side.

Even though spiritual, why do we sometimes get a bad, evil, or negative thought not for a particular person, but in general? ~ Plain and simple…we are human that’s why we have these thoughts. We are spiritual beings having human experiences to learn and to grow. That’s why we come to Earth school. We are the ones that choose to label the thoughts as bad, evil or negative anyway. Change your perception of them and recognize you are simply having a thought.

Why did someone invent and then mark everything with time? Wouldn’t it be a wonderful world if we just lived and died in a world where time didn’t exist or matter? ~ Humans have the need to label and to control all aspects of their lives. Of course, it would be wonderful to live in such a place and you will once you transition to the other side where linear time doesn’t exist.

Would you break a law to save a loved one? ~ Each individual will make their own choice and only they can answer the question when and if the situation were to arise.

Now, what is YOUR response to these questions? What is YOUR perception?
