"Perception is the Reception we build in ourselves to Ensure our Self-Interest is Protected and Justified"
Let's take a closer look at this statement through way of an example.
How many times have you been in conversation with someone about a certain point/topic, and you both disagree with one another's 'point of view' aka perception of the point/topic of discussion? - Many can relate to this, I am sure.
I can recall many of my own memories in terms of this example. So what is the problem with this? Or rather… what does this show us about ourselves? It indicates that by the mere fact that 2 beings are unable to see eye to eye on a point/topic of discussion, that it means that both have filtered the information at hand through their belief systems in such a way that the result would suits their character's best interest.
Let’s take a simple example such as 'love'. 2 beings are talking about their love, and both end up sharing their own interpretation/perception/idea of love. Both beings don’t entirely agree with the other's 'point of view' on the topic, because each has within their own mind filtered through their past experiences/memories within this field (love). One being might stick steadfast to the idea that love only exists in the family system, because they have loved outside this system, and have been 'let down' in some way, therefore forming the conclusion that the only beings whom have ever loved them "unconditionally" have been his/her family members. The other being is within a different timeline on the subject of love, where maybe they have also been 'let down' in a similar way, however have through their experience come to the conclusion that the only 'real' love which exists is self-love, in the context of loving only themselves unconditionally - thus forming the perception/belief/idea/interpretation that the only love that exists is self-love.
So what is missing here? Reality-consideration, I guess is another way of putting it. Why are the beings not using reality as a cross-reference, meaning the ability to consider reality and form a conclusion about love based in reality, as what is best for all? This would be the only valid way in which to resolve their disagreement based on their own perceptions.
However, humans are not like this, as we have been programmed to only think/care/consider our own self-interests, and to some extent those who are our 'nearest and dearest'.
Thus, currently the way in which 'perception' exists within our current acceptance and allowance thereof, can be summed up within the following statement to the T:
"Perception is the Reception we build in ourselves to Ensure our Self-Interest is Protected and Justified" - Bernard Poolman
Perception is the way in which we receive information and filter it through our self-created belief-systems to ensure that the outcome is always in service and defense of our own self-interests. Thus, it can be concluded that perception = a self-manipulation tactic which ensures that we remain separate from the world around us, and ultimately ensures that we never change who we are as characters into living beings which are able to live in harmony within what is best for all.
So I have placed the following correction in for myself in order to support me to get out of my inner self-interest defense mechanism, into the world of reality, as what is here.
When and as I find myself sharing my perception of/about a point/topic, I stop and I breathe. From this I see, realize and understand that the mere fact that I have a perception about a point/topic existent within me, indicates that I am in separation of the point, and am not considering the factual variables (reality points) involved in and around the point/topic, but am instead only considering my own self-interest within it. Thus, I move myself to from here investigate the reality points involved in/around the topic, and from here direct myself to come to a 'best for all' solution in terms of this point/topic, instead of spreading my own mind-filtered CON-clusions and perceptions of the point at hand.
Within this I also see, realize and understand that if I allow myself to mindlessly shared and speak my perceptions, that I am through this influencing other beings to also align their understanding to mine. Thus, I am directly responsible for assisting and supporting others to separate themselves further from life here, instead of assisting and supporting them to as well as myself to consider reality within what is best for all.
