Looking Beyond Our Own Perceptions

Written by Mathew Naismith  

I've been preoccupied recently with work, play and a forum site I became involved on, the owner of the site certainly has her work cut out for her, so many people have a different perspective on each others perceptions. 

What I'm going to do is show you a video first up showing the subtle differences between Eastern and Western perceptions in the same circumstances, I found this quite interesting myself. This post isn't actually about Eastern and Western perceptions though, it's actually about another perceptive that can also lead us to perceive quite differently to other people.    


I'm going to talk about how our own formulations create different perceptions to other people even while experiencing and knowing the same things.  

Formulation; is to do with the way we express ourselves, these expressions are created by the way we form what we know and are aware of, this is what gives the perception of what we are expressing. You can see this occurring in the video, even under the exact same circumstances, we express ourselves quite differently to other people who formulate an occurrence in a different way to ourselves.

We might perceive here that one is wrong or right over the other, I call this black and white perceiving, why does there have to be a wrong or right, why can't they just be a different way to express ourselves which is brought on by the way we perceive through the way we formulate? 

It's interesting how a black and white perception give us boundaries to perceive by where a non black and white perception is void of these boundaries. This kind of perceiving goes beyond a wrong or right, good or bad, negative or positive, there is no true sense of a black and white within this way of perceiving.

People who only seem to perceive in a black and white perception, can make forum sites a chaotic experience, they are unable to perceive beyond their own perceptions of a black and white. These boundaries we give ourselves can hinder our reasoning process which can  lead to conflict. The world the way it is at present is a good example of this.

Every one can formulate according to their own perceptions but not everyone can formulate in an unbiased manner, as soon as we only see a black and white, we have created a bias that we perceive by and express. This will of course give us a totally different perspective from people who perceive beyond the perception of a black and white perspective.

Let's now take a look at people like Einstein and Gandhi, they formulated quite differently which was wholly due to their knowing and circumstances. If we go back to the video, this shows us how different people express themselves in the same circumstances, Einstein and Gandhi however found themselves in different circumstances but perceived the same. Einstein and Gandhi found themselves in quite different circumstances but this  didn't mean they didn't perceive in the same way , there was no simple black and white perception for them.

A Non Black and Whit Perception: In actuality, both these people experienced quite different circumstances but perceived in the same way,  unlike what was shown in the video. They could observe beyond a black and white perception, this gave them a bias free perception and subsequent expression. It's by no mistake why these two people were so great within their fields.  

People like Einstein and Gandhi were lucky, they could formulate their perceptions quite naturally, most people need to be taught to formulate past a black and white perception and even then they just can't do it. You need to be very open minded and don't just judge a black and white, good or bad, this however certainly isn't easy at times except for people like Einstein and Gandhi that is. Einstein and Gandhi never perceived in a black and white perception believe it or not when other people do, this is another reasons why everyone perceives so differently at times other than Eastern and western perceptions. 

I found it quite interesting observing and also participating on this forum site, I observed the different ways people perceived each other, I also observed my own participation and in how I also expressed myself using a black and white perception at times. The way we perceive certainly determines the reality we will create.

Colour effects On Us

Written by Mathew Naismith

A bloke of the name of Sayan Hernandez asked me some very perceptive questions in regard to my last post titled, The effects of Colour on Us, that just might clear up a few things for a number of people in relation to how colour has an effect on us.

To Mathew: I like dark green but I guess that's bad

To Sayan Hernandez: Not at all +Sayan Hernandez, the effects of dark green is probably needed by you for some reason. All our perceptions are different and each of these perceptions needs a different colour to balance them out. 

To Mathew: Not sure I understand but from what I read in the spiritual significance of the colour, it said dark green was medium harmful, has negative energy.

To Sayan Hernandez: It can hinder our spiritual projections/awareness by blocking our perceptions but other factors need to be taken into consideration as well like how bright our perception is in the first place, this may have to be balanced out by dark green in your case. The colour of your car, the place where you live, and the people you live with and so forth, all have a bearing.

If I had a real colourful bright perception, wearing black to me wouldn’t be a negative thing as it would be giving my perception more balance.  Wearing black can be harmful if I had a dark or black and white perception to start with.

How do you tell if you have a dark or black and white perception?  Do you see a yes and no, wrong and right, black and white to everything? If yes, this represents a black and white perception, a logical mind which is unable to perceive past a black and white perception.

However on the other hand if you don’t just see everything as black and white, you most probably have a bright perception which is able to perceive beyond a black and white perception.

I will give you an example of black and white perception; atheists believe there is no way a God can ever exist and on the other hand you have people who say there’s  no way a God couldn’t not exist.  Our perceptions are governed by our black and white perceptions which aren’t necessarily a bad thing it just means we are unable to perceive outside of our own black and white perceptions.  Would a believer in God or an atheist want to look outside of their own perceptions?  The answer is no but I believe a person who has a bright or technicolour perception can. Agnostics are a good example of a brighter perception which enables them to perceive past black and white perceptions.

I believe in an intelligent creative consciousness that we call God, this to me says I have a black and white perception however if it was proven that I wasn’t correct within my perception, that wouldn’t worry me. In this case it would mean I have a brighter perception than just black and white.  Black and white perceptions have their place as do brighter perceptions however I think it’s the black and white perceptions that give us grief. This is due to black and white perceptions being opposing like with religion and atheism for example, technicolour perceptions don’t have opposing opposites therefore are more at peace.  In other words, all the colours are mixed up as one not separate and opposing each other. This also means all perceptions are mixed up and not opposing each other!!

When I say bring on the technicolour dreamtime I mean give us peace by not seeing each other’s perceptions as opposing opposite perceptions but perceptions that are all mixed up together as one, to me this would be utterly blissful and peaceful…….Is this a dream? I don’t think so.
