Friday 16 November 2012 – Reactive Perceptions

In life we often react / act with haste and mis understanding of the other or our circumstances. This is not always the case but more often than not emotions, conversations, feelings, beliefs and thoughts revolve around our inability to assess our situation with intuition, discretion, careful consideration and an intuitive angle. This is largely due to the fact that if an experience does not immediately agree with our beliefs, thought patterns or emotional states of being, as humans we become very defensive and assume a posture of ‘opposition’. We often react / act from a personal understanding of perceived perceptions. We perceive a set of circumstances to be a particular when in reality they are not and these circumstances then spiral from here, compound, feed off each other and become heightened.

What may be required here is a little patience and the understanding that one’s emotional state and past experiences are shaping what one believes there and then… What is often missing is the understanding of the intention of the other. We miss what the others intention is behind their energy, behind their communication or thoughts. Intention is crucial amongst the interplay of relationships and life for it sets the foundation and direction of knowledge and wisdom. Ideally as one intends knowledge, opinion, belief or thought to be expressed is how it should be received. Unfortunately though this is not always the case. It is crucial here that prior to reacting violently or with aggression or with haste we understand one’s intentions. The largest barrier here is language and communication. Our language is laden with emotion, misconstrued thought patterns and the inability to express ourselves due to inner confusion or a lack of inner awareness.
