Perception is the ability to become
Aware of something through the senses which include
Tasting, touching, smelling, hearing, and seeing. They
Along with the mind itself are fixed in the way
Of experiencing truth. The way life is viewed
Keeps us locked in a perceptual conundrum.
From a single point of observation, there seems
To be a here or there, this or that, now or then,
And a space with dimensions where time elapses,
But it is all the result of brain synapses
That consciousness is prone to again and again
Keep itself occupied in a world of extremes.
How one perceives the world is dependent on one’s
Level of consciousness, which is the result of
Past karmic influences, beliefs, and ego
Dominance. There’s a limit to what one can know
Through the ego mind. One can learn to rise above
Its agenda and all of its misperceptions.
The content of the ego mind is a product
Of perception. No independent existence
Can it have. It and all of its activities,
Including its preoccupation with disease,
Depends on one’s indwelling divine effulgence.
Our perceptions are only a mental construct.
