What we perceive can be different from perceptive reality. There are two kinds of perception, the way we see ourselves and our world and the way others see us and their world. Our behavior is based on perception of what reality is, not on reality itself. How we see things influences our attitude. We control our perception. If we’re not happy with how our life is going, the first place to look is our perception.
Characteristics that affect perception can be attitudes, past experiences and expectations. Every experience we have could alter our perception. Perception is a key in communication. The difference between listening and hearing what is said can influence our perception, too. Perception can very widely among individuals exposed to the same reality.
We are all physical beings, a mixture of the spiritual and earthy. Our perception of spirituality and God are reflections of the spiritual sides of our natures. As spiritual beings, Angels have some interest with us. We have also heard how Angels have appeared to people throughout history. When we believe in Angels, we have faith that God is near to us every day.
Sleight-of-hand magic is based on the demonstrable fact that, as a rule, people only see what they expect to see … Since we don’t expect to see Angels, we don’t. An angel spreads his glittering wings over us, and we say things like, “It was one of those days that made you feel so good just to be alive,” or “I had a hunch everything was going to turn out all right,” or “I don’t know where I ever found the courage.” ~ Frederick Buechner (Wishful Thinking)
