Perception, looking and seeing
(Santa Clara, California)
This Kumar saying a warm hello. Looking is a physical thing meaning reality. When we look at something, we are looking at the same thing which exists in all dimensions. However, perception is framing, framing what we look at into a framework of mind, with a different interpretation.
Then interpretation is dependent on the events, happenings in one's life.
For example, when two individuals look at snow falling through a window in wilderness experience different things.
One who always had good memories of watching white snow fall with a glass of red wine, always feels happy.
Whereas the other individual, who looks at the same white snow, feels his inner emotions stirred, and feels bad as he connects the snow outside with a ski accident of one of his kith and kin.
See, the same white snow, framed by two different individuals, with different frame of mind feel different emotions. Seeing is experiencing a logical and a rational explanation, irrespective of the frame of mind we framed of what we Looked at.
Have a wonderful day
