perception

A Quote by David R. Hawkins on communication, mentalization, perception, subjective, and objective

"Each person perceives, experiences, and interprets the world and its events in accord withg their own prdominant level of consciousness. this is further reinforced by the mind's proclivity to explanation via mentalization and rationalized interpretation of perceived data"...."Because the mind, by virtue of its innate structure, is unable to differentiate perception from essence or res cogitans (interna) from res externa (extensa), as noted by René Descartes, it makes the naïve assumption that it experiences and thereby 'knows reality' and that other viewpoints therefore must be 'wrong'.........". David R. Hawkins, "The Reality, Spirituality, and Modern Man", 2008, p. 59-60

A Quote by Ansel Adams on perception, self, and spirit

No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit.

A Quote by Robert Browning on light, perception, and self

Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise
From outward things, whate'er you may believe.
There is an inmost centre in us all,
Where truth abides in fulness; and around,
Wall upon wall, the gross flesh hems it in,
This perfect, clear perception-which is truth.
A baffling and perverting carnal mesh
Binds it, and makes all error: and to know
Rather consists in opening out a way
Whence the imprisoned splendour may escape,
Than in effecting entry for a light
Supposed to be without.

Robert Browning (1812 - 1889)

A Quote by Luis Daniel Maldonado Fonken on luis, daniel, maldonado, fonken, time, fractal, event, future, past, today, consciousness, perception, light, emotions, and energy

we live in the past
light is fast, but thoughts and emotions are faster
counsciousness and perception can be really fast
our body, and material world is too slow

today, is a sparkle of an event that did happend long time ago.
we live the past of our consciousness ,in our material world
we live the present of our body
we live the trip of light and perception, a continues change
our future have been  decided  already, right now

A Quote by Alexis Carrel on intuition, perception, and reality

Intuition comes very close to clairvoyance; it appears to be the extrasensory perception of reality.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on notion, perception, reality, and science

The belief in an external world independent of the perceiving subject is the basis of all natural science.  Since, however, sense perception only gives information of this external world or of "physical reality" indirectly, we can only grasp the latter by speculative means.  It follows from this that our notions of physical reality can never be final.  We must always be ready to change these notions - that is to say, the axiomatic basis of physics - in order to do justice to perceived facts in the most perfect way.

A Quote by Bertrand Russell on mind, introspection, meaning, life, wisdom, and perception

"The mind is a strange machine which can combine the materials offered to it in the most astonishing ways, but without material from the external world it is powerless, and unlike the sausage machine it must seize its material for itself, since events only become experiences through the interest we take in them; if they do not interest us, we are making nothing of them. The man, therefore, whose attention is turned within finds nothing worthy of his notice, whereas the man whose attention is turned outward can find within, in those rare moments when he examines his soul, the most varied and interesting assortment of ingredients being dissected and recombined into beautiful and instructive patterns."

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

A Quote by Huang Po on huang po, buddhism, zen, mind, void, enlightenment, perception, and one

A perception  (experience), sudden as blinking, that subject and object are one, will lead to a deeply mysterious wordless understanding; and by this understanding will you awake to the truth of Zen.

A Quote by Huang Po on huang po, buddhism, zen, mind, void, enlightenment, nature, perception, phenomenon, and universal

The nature of the Absolute is neither perceptible nor imperceptible; and with phenomena it is just the same.  But to one who has discovered his real nature, how can there be anywhere or anything separate from it?...

...Therefore it is said:  'The perception of a phenomenon IS the perception of the Universal Nature, since phenomena and Mind are one and the same.'
