It's said that perception is projection. In other words, what you see as your reality is what you experience and project out in to the world. That's determined by your upbringing, schooling, society in general and your life experiences, what is also called the socialization process by some. Yet, this is only a fragment of who we are. Whilst we need to walk our walk on the earth I feel it's important not to loose sight of the bigger picture of who we really are. The essence of our being which gave birth to the creative idea of living here now through a physical body to learn and grow. We all need to walk in balance between the physical and spiritual side of our nature, what is called the middle path. This isn't easy in a world that demands full co-operation on all things material! Indeed, finding time to just be for many people seems like a luxury. It actually isn't as time alone is essential for good health and well-being. Again it's back to perception. If you perceive you don't have any time as that's perhaps the way you have always seen it, that's what you will experience. By changing our mind-set and starting to believe in another reality in our lives we can make changes for the better.
