perception

A Quote by Richard Farson on innovation, vision, visionary, risk, perception, fresh brain, leadership, and curiosity

Those who see what's obvious aren't necessarily brighter than others.  They're just more likely to observe that the emperor is naked.  Like children, they see what's actually there.  Their perceptions are less clouded by belief systems, taboos, habits of thought.  One responsibility of management---an important one---is to call attention to the invisible obvious, pointing it out as a child does (sometimes to the embarrassment of adults).  Doing so also requires supporting employees who take that risk, too, and other risks as well.

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on meditation, krishnamurti, experience, visions, perception, realization, recognition, memory, search, and mind

Is there a new experience in meditation? The desire for experience, the higher experience which is beyond and above the daily or the commonplace, is what keeps the well-spring empty. The craving for more experience, for visions, for higher perception, for some realization or other, makes the mind look outward, which is no different from its dependence on environment and people. The curious part of meditation is that an event is not made into an experience. It is there, like a new star in the heavens, without memory taking it over and holding it, without the habitual process of recognition and response in terms of like and dislike. Our search is always outgoing; the mind seeking any experience is outgoing. Inward-going is not a search at all; it is perceiving. Response is always repetitive, for it comes always from the same bank of memory.

A Quote by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse on zen, enlightenment, self, perception, and easy truth

Ultimately one must abandon the path to enlightenment. If you still define yourself as a Buddhist, you are not a buddha yet.

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on meditation, mind, love, space, thought, perception, ecstasy, pleasure, intellect, and krishnamurti

Perception without the word, which is without thought, is one of the strangest phenomena. Then the perception is much more acute, not only with the brain, but also with all the senses. Such perception is not the fragmentary perception of the intellect nor the affair of the emotions. It can be called a total perception, and it is part of meditation.

Perception without the perceiver in meditation is to commune with the height and depth of the immense. This perception is entirely different from seeing an object without an observer, because in the perception of meditation there is no object and therefore no experience. can, however, take place when the eyes are open and one is surrounded by objects of every kind. But then these objects have no importance at all. One sees them but there is no process of recognition, which means there is no experiencing.

What meaning has such meditation? There is no meaning; there is no utility. But in that meditation there is a movement of great ecstasy which is not to be confounded with pleasure. It is this ecstasy which gives to the eye, to the brain and to the heart, the quality of innocency. Without seeing life as something totally new, it is a routine, a boredom, a meaningless affair. So meditation is of the greatest importance. It opens the door to the incalculable, to the measureless.

A Quote by Scott Raymond Adams on truth, science, facts, reality, and perception

Our perceptions of truth are built around what is practical, not what is true. Even the smartest human brain doesn’t have the capacity for discerning true facts. That’s why so many of us settle for scientific facts. It’s the best we can do.

Scott Raymond Adams (1957 -)

A Quote by William Blake on life, perception, and thought

  If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear
to man as it is: infinite.
  For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow
chinks of his cavern.

A Quote by Sadhguru on guru, sage, yoga, wisdom, inspiration, transformation, change, perception, consciousness, enlightenment, realization, and spirituality

"I'm not interested in the wellbeing of society because society is a big lie.  Where is society?  I only see individual beings and only the individual can grow.  Each one is enormous and tremendous in his own way-each one is unique.  " -Sadhguru

A Quote by Keith Ferrazzi on poverty, perception, networking, self realization, community, and empowerment

Poverty, I realized, wasn't only a lack of financial resources; it was isolation from the kind of people that could help you make more of yourself.

A Quote by ESK on life, perception, heart, mind, want, needs, and love

Strip life of every perception that exists in your mind and you will see the raw perfection that exists in everything.  View this through the lens of your heart and you will find everything you have ever wanted and needed.
