    I think our perception (since it is subjective) CAN be created by us, but I personally think that how we perceive things is determined by our brain and chemical reactions.

    People have defferent brains, people have different perceptions.

    Yes, our experiences in life make us create our own perception.

    It would not be essential that what I perceive on a particular thing would be the same perception for another person...it is ultimately what experience I had from that particular thing makes my perception different to what the other person has.

    certainly, we can develop and explore our own perception, if we can have a good observation for daily life. gradually, own perception will come. and we must have a balance with positive or right perception, or else we cannot get one that harmonious with the world.

    Yes. Our spirits are responsible for everything we feel physically and mentally. When your spirit is ill or sick, your body will become ill or sick. The spiritual lays way to the physical.

    Perception is observation through our senses using sight or sound.  Focus on sound:  If a sound escapes in a wilderness, what if someone is not there to hear it?  It’s there, but I am not aware of it.

    Another example is I’m having a perfect day feeling good, like:

          “Boy!  Do I feel good? ” 

    A moment passes, later someone throws a barbed wired remark—what happens to the good day?  These remarks are not apples of gold in silver carved bowls; they’re more like poisoned arrows to stab to the heart.  It was the sound of words, not the sound of music that in seconds I’m plunged from carefree joy to the depth of melancholy.  AsWomb says:

         “Don’t be so sensitive.  Don’t let your mind focus on it he or she had her say, now you move on.”  “Yeah, but,” DaddyLong responds:

         “It’s the sting of the words just uttered.  My ears still sting from the thought content of the words.  Was it an altercation?  If it was, then I will invent episodes to retaliate.”   

    .     “Get a grip, DaddyLong.  Why not let yourselves be wronged instead?”  (1 Corinthians 6:7)

    Perception is subjective and it is what we think, is so......
    Reality "is".
    And it takes a high level of self awareness to step outta the box and see what really "is"
