On the horizon, we get from h-e-l-L to h-e-l-P by being Mindful, Noble and Optomistic. That brings us to “P.” How we Perceive determines how we will act, react and create our lives. It determines whether we live in the past or present, in prosperity or poverty.
(All following quotes are from HD Thoreau.)
“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
It is repeated thoughts that produce our perception.
“The perception of beauty is a moral test. This world is but a canvas to our imagination.”
Perception leads to conception which will result in a birth. The birth can be negative. If we perceive ourselves as weak, impoverished and unable, guess what baby will come from that perception? To change how we perceive, and therefore how we conceive and birth, we must change the mental paths that we tread. Prayer has been compared to meditation and Paul proposes that you pray without ceasing. Repeated prayers become paths of perception.
Good or bad, you will Live the life you imagined. You must live in the present, “Launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.”
Perceive your breath. thoughts and life as positive waves through meditative prayer.
