Our Perceptions and Reasoning

We have devised a course of reasoning that depends entirely on the perceptions we have. These perceptions are randomly construed, based on our everyday experiences. Relying more on the visual evidence, we give a cursory attention to details we pick up from fleeting moments.

Such perceptions depend on our state of mind at that particular point in time. When we calmly ponder over the same incident or event (in retrospect) we may jumble the sequence. In that calm state of mind, with altered sequencing, our reasoning may differ and present us with a completely new interpretation.

So, reasoning and the manner of perceiving the same event or experience depends on the prevailing mood, which alters the consciousness. Similarly, when we employ our consciousness based on hearsay, scripted messages, manipulated visuals and other forms of media, it can lead to conflicting reasoning and conclusions.

We create many parallels and we ponder over the one which creates a profound impact on our mind. This kind of impact will vary from individual to individual.

The information we gather from society and the historical memoirs forms the foundation of our education. Some have been experimentally proved, but most remains as theories and hypotheses. In the case of experiments, the procedures are followed sequentially. Through trial and error, these sequences were noted down for future perusal and to avoid unnecessary failures. Our education is mostly perceptions that are accepted over a period of time and documented experiments.

New experiments take time to stabilize and establish the exact results. To plan or even devise any new course of experiments, contrary to the established scientific community requires an exemplary visionary.

For now, the scientific knowledge is accepted and we work around those guidelines, till the time they are challenged and proved to be wrong or add more scientific evidence to the older ones.

Let’s come back to our perceptions, and we humans give a lot of emphasis on the experience of the body, based on which we draw our understanding of life.

We do not dwell too much on the compatibility of the soul, and sexual union, to carry forward the human race has been the main objective. The foundations of human relationships are not based on the deeper understanding of the senses resulting in fragile premises.

Coming back to our reasoning, they vary, based on whether our expectations were fulfilled. We have chosen emotions to express our moods (happiness, anger, anguish, shyness, courage, and defense) based on the comprehension of our senses.

We have fairly scant knowledge about love, emotion, spirituality, and higher consciousness because of our limited knowledge of the universe and our reticence to delve deeper.

Mostly, human relationships are crumbling and becoming more casual because of our lack of awareness about each other. We seek pleasure and nothing beyond superficial satisfaction. Through the ages, the senses are diminishing in power and our inability to comprehend the reality of life and our purpose.

In this fast-paced world, we do not have time to spend time in solitude and go beyond the body, to explore the mind and soul. Respect between humans is diminishing and there is unhealthy competitiveness, which emanates from inadequate knowledge.

Weakening senses mean less awareness of the universe and the inability to interpret the truth about life and our existence; we may never discover our true potential as human beings.

    1. Thank you so much, Liza. There are many realities, and to identify our reality from the multitude is quite a journey. Dimensions of consciousness has to be explored to negate the false perceptions and arrive closer to pure reality.

  1. very wise thought here… I guess everything is subjective… no one can truly define the meaning of happiness and the meaning of life… we have to experience it first before we can truly understand its meaning. Nice one my friend 🙂
