Consciousness and Perception

“It helps if you remember that everyone is doing their best from their level of consciousness.”
~Deepak Chopra~

When we speak of infinite possibilities, it simply means that an object, idea or circumstance can easily be experienced in myriad number of ways depending upon the beliefs, attitudes and life experiences of the person doing the interacting.

To most of us, a chair is a chair. However, to a child who has yet to learn the concept “chair”, that object may be a fort, a place to hide or anything their imagination can conjure. At some point, someone solidifies their imprinting with a statement such as “No, that’s not for play. We sit on chairs.” And, all at once, infinite possibility and joy are limited to a particular “truth” and eventually the child becomes an adult who forgets all the fun moments and discoveries he or she once had.
Consider that our early years in pure experience – everything is interesting, sometimes magical or scary, but we are willing to explore without preconceived ideas or concepts. Then we begin to learn through trial and error and from watching those around us. Limitation becomes hard-wired into our experience.
The next step of personal evolution is the re-awakening of consciousness. We begin to play in the realm of possibility, creating new realities, changing things that once seemed so permanent and find that freedom awaits. So, the next time you find yourself embroiled in a discussion of right vs. wrong or differences of perception, remember that we all process life from our own level of consciousness. Therefore; everyone’s perception is “right” to them based upon their own experience and the lessons which are needed for their soul’s growth. Given the opportunity to explore and learn, our perceptions will surely expand to encompass every possibility.
