I woke to a beautiful spring morning
But it prompted a reflection that has been in my brain since I was a young boy
The quote is “perception is reality ”
But are we looking through similar lenses?
What if what I call green differs from what you call green?
What if we are not really all that connected?
What if left to me and left to you in reality are completely different
What if we see only fixed to our perceptions
What if we hear only fixed to our understandings
What if what we hold as reality is only perception?
I know it’s exaggerated but doesn’t this illustrate what we need to realize when we do this work we set out to do?
When we seek to truly empathize would it be best to go to edges and then settle back to reality
I don’t know but what would you do , say and how would you act if the assumed could no longer be assumed?
