What is your perception of........


Well-known member
Just because I am a mind guy...... Read this it fits what people think of their team, coaches, and everything else in life.

Everyone looks at the world differently, and appreciating that is a massive step towards being a balanced, rational person. It allows you to accept peoples individual differences, rather than think “you don’t agree with me, therefore you’re wrong”, which describes a disturbingly high amount of peoples attitudes.

It leads to the attitude of having to control nature rather than flow with it, to bend the world to fit with an imagined set of expectations. People want to see the world as they want it to be, not as it is. Anything to the contrary is distorted, deleted or denied, anything that reinforces it is welcomed with open arms. Of course, nature doesn’t give a shit, and will gladly break down those walls when they became brittle enough, and this is usually the point of a “breakdown”.

This is the whole “the map is not the territory” thing, the failure to grasp of which lies at the heart of most mental illness.

But anyway, the main thing I was alluding to at the start is not the perception of reality, but just the willingness to perceive it. Are you going to irrationally defend what you want to believe, ignoring evidence to the contrary, or are you going to pay more attention to that evidence to learn something new? Are you going to stick to your negative belief systems that keep you hemmed inside of your life, or are you going to test them by wondering what it would be like if those beliefs weren’t true?

Basically, are you going to be willing to give up your bullshit to take further steps closer to reality, or choose to live with your bullshit forever more?

Because really, most of what people believe to be true (whether it be about their potential, how lovable they are, whether other people are threatening, whats scary etc) is bullshit. If it wasn’t, it would be a fact, and not a belief.

your belief system is what your are....that is why it is so hard to come to a place of compromise with anything...beliefs are ironclad as they are an accumulation of individual experience, collective environment and individual social interaction....these help to formulate what you perceive as being true....to you..ie "what you believe"..unless you have lived in a box your entire life with limited experience, environment and social interaction, then you have become a mutant of sorts....the unexplainable......or is that a fan....LOL now I am confused.
so belief becomes fact until you realize that there is more than what you perceive...when you become more you begin to doubt all that you thought you were...hence it all starts over

did you know that this exists

this is the largest structure known to man at this time....The newfound LQC is composed of 73 quasars and spans about 1.6 billion light-years in most directions, though it is 4 billion light-years across at its widest point.

this ought to make you think twice about who you are and how significant that is....it is only a game.
Wow, my perception of egriz has taken a significant different trajectory. This could foster a paradigm shift amongst egriz posters that I for one could not have predicted. Maybe egriz posters will begin to question that WaGrizz stadium is not the center of the universe.
