The Common Perception
How we interpret the world around us for ourselves is up to us, and for some this can be pretty different to the main view. For example, the various religious doctrines available to us for study and participate in result in completely different reasons for life itself and the actions in which we go about in honour of our given principles. It's time to take a look at this and how our behaviour can appear to others, and how our decisions can affect others, particularly if they do not share or even appreciate the particular world view in which the action is manifested from.
The common perception is a phrase I'd like to use in order to represent the median across all people within a given area of influence. So when we make decisions, when we present information, when we communicate with our group, not only do we consider the perception of our own world view but we consider the common perception also. By linking the two with a network of truth which guides the mind from one angle to another without the need of emotional influence, we are able to educate and inform to the maximum degree. This means that when we turn a blind eye to the actions of the masses due to our own differences in perception on life, we are in fact cutting a notch away from that bridge which allows us to work together for progress.
Because we become emotionally attached to our ideas, knowledge and beliefs, it can be very difficult to find the right cause of action for a given set of people. In order to not create a discordance with our fellows, the communication must incorporate all points of view or at least the median point within them.
This can go as a rule of thumb for most communications, and if we continue to remember this act of speaking truth to truth via pathways pointing from the common perception to our own, getting our ideas across will be a lot easier for those who are willing to listen. For those who do not wish to hear, all we can do is continue with the network of truth from the perception that they inform us is not allowing them to appreciate our sayings.
To follow this point, the shadow side to this is that we are not entitled to be correct, we are only entitled to make our case. If it comes to name calling, emotionally charged statements of aggression, or other forms of mal-intended direction of personal energy, then it has come to a close for your truths. When it is possible to bring the truth back into the light and speak bridges of wisdom that span from the common perception to our own, then it is safe for others to walk, if they wish to.
