We create our world based on our perceptions. How we see people, places, and things is based on our core beliefs, life experience, socialization, self-identity, personality, and all that makes us who we are. In turn, how we perceive the world around us helps to shape and define who we are; how we see ourselves. We are constantly interpreting what we are experiencing and translating it into concrete definable terms which often we conclude as fact (absolute) when in actuality it is only how we perceive it to be.

Given a scene that five people are viewing simultaneously, chances are there will be five different descriptions of what is being vi as weewed interpret it through our inner and outer senses. The same goes for our experiences. Five people can be experiencing the same event and each will process it differently; no two alike.

It is a matter of perception from which opinions and beliefs are formulated which in turn influences how we perceive the world in which we exist and influences how we act within it. Therefore, there is no right or wrong in defining the world around us. If we could only respect the fact that it is all in how we perceive our experiences, we could avoid conflict and disagreement. We could respect each other’s point of view as being unique to the perceiver knowing it does not reflect poorly on us or threaten who we define ourselves to be because we differ in opinion or belief. There are infinite perceived outcomes for anything being experienced. And no experience is erroneous; good or bad; right or wrong. They are all perfect and right for the person perceiving it.

The nuances of the world; the people, places, and things comprising it offer a plethora of possibilities to stimulate our experiences into banners of artistry that speak to us personally all through the mechanism of our perception. How we perceive the world around us is unique to each experience and everyone has the gift of understanding or interpreting the world based on our senses which form self-designed mental impressions. It is totally unique. So in our experiences, in relation to the people, places, and things making up our world, we are free to embrace the substance and apply the data received through our perception in any way we like. And however we decide is perfect and right for us because in essence, it is only a matter of perception.
