Unique Perceptions

Updated on May 29, 2016

Unique Perceptions

Unique perceptions have captured my attention since I can remember and have given me many moments of pause for contemplative inquiry into the uniqueness of human nature and our perceptions. My observations as written are therefore subject to change without notice because as my perception changes so will my observations.

Perceptions are intricately weaved patterns of, experience, knowledge, and a variable number of other contributing factors that are embroidered delicately in the psyche of each and every individual which are unique to each of us. The uniqueness of the unlimited patterns of perception that arise and emerge appears to be interconnected and interdependently woven into the tapestry of the whole of existence. As unique as these patterns may be, like a ripple, they each affect one another like a symphony without a composer. If the patterns are in harmony, beautiful music can be heard or felt. When the patterns are not in harmony, waves of rhythms will beat out a tune that is not so beautiful to be heard or felt.


Whilst perceptions play a major role in our life journey it is not always obvious when observing the effect of the ripples our patterns of perception give rise to. Etched however in the history of man are moments in time where the effects of some ripples are more obvious. Unique patterns of perceptions therefore that have caused much unrest, discord and disharmony, simply because some failed to see past the parameters of their own perceptions. Right or wrong is not what I am pointing to. Rather it is the uniqueness of the perceptions we form and how easily the inner patterns of these perceptions can give rise to decisions that are not always beneficial for the whole.


When we are exploring religious options, perceptions will play just as an important role in choosing what philosophies fit right with our patterns. Like a smorgasbord laden with delicious tidbits of wisdom, tantalizing tastes of truth and nutritious food for thought, each individual will choose a religion, philosophy or belief according to their unique pattern of perception of taste, as they would with food.

Whether what we choose is good for us or not, our bodies are certain to let us know either way. All the experts in the area of health and well being can advise us how best to live a quality of life, however, because we are unique our body may not respond to the well meaning advice that the person before us benefited from. Therefore, like our perceptions that are interconnected to our body, our body is also unique and may not respond well because our patterns do not allow it to respond a certain way.

So it is when exploring religious options, what is good for us or is not good for us in the tapestry of life, our inner patterns of perceptions will let us know if we remain aware. Is it right or wrong what we choose? When our patterns of perceptions change, so will our choices. What is right today could be wrong tomorrow.

      That is why I named my store Unique Perceptions, everyone has a different perception of what spiritual path to follow and what is real for them or not.
