We are gatherers (no, not hunters and gatherers), and we gather a lot. The body we use, the thoughts we make, the solutions we provide and almost everything is simply what we have gathered.

You eat your favorite food gathered from the earth and you make your body, you listen to the flowers, the nature, the people and the living beings to gather your thoughts, you gather a lot of memory and the permutations and combinations of what you’ve gathered makes up a whole new universe for you.

They call it.

Perception

Perception is simply about seeing things your own way (and yea, don’t think everybody is thinking the same).

You got a different perception from me, but we both has this common perception called confused perception. It’s very basic and simple in nature, but it’s definitely a sophisticated neural activity with lots of chemistry.

Confused perception is when you support yourself with your thoughts when you actually knows that it’s unfair. This usually happens when you make a bad move and then you change your perspective to positive (even though it was negative to you few days before).

We can define confused perception with so many other sentences like “alternative solution” or “love what you do” (it’s different from “do what you love”) some people has more clarity that they conclude it as “life isn’t fair”.

Example -

Sometimes you know what really happened, but then you try not to think about it and starts praising the final result even though it’s worse. Maybe hours before the final result, you might have thought that this shouldn’t have happened, but unfortunately it happened, so you got two options left.

Regret

Regret is good, but it’s very dangerous. Regretting is nothing but a human ability to suffer today because something wrong happened yesterday (something that never makes any sense).

Well, regretting leads to massive mental suffering but at the end of the day you calm down for sure (because you knew that you at-least had some regret).

But some people avoid regret and justifies it positively inside their mind, which is nothing but.

Confused perception!

It’s definitely dangerous, because it will always end up in either regret or massive confusion (both ain’t good).

Clarity

Clarity is the solution. From my perspective,

Perception is like mud water, you’re trying to see the bottom of the cup knowing that it’s impossible. The more you filter the water, the clearer it becomes.

Having utmost clear perception removes confusion and negative feelings whereas it promotes emotional intelligence and clarity towards making decisions.

Making the mud water clear is not an easy job, it takes efforts and consistent practice, hopefully everyone in this world including me will get to that point where our perception is as clear as clear water.
