Perception has as much to do with choice and disposition as it has to do with the actual perception of what actually is. Disposition and choice serve to cloud our mind or clear it. The discernment of our environment is always inclusive. We do see it. Mystic perception, for me, involves the realm of our environment that is image. Observable structure and relationships, the texture of place that is image. In considering such things as image perception, a neutral mind-set is indispensable. Our inclination to see things as we want them to be can only be defeated by our will to accept things as they are. I must accept that what I observe that is image, is just that. It is not owned by my opinion or interpretation.
Perception is usually distant from its aspect that is image. We are too busy to concern ourselves or otherwise occupied. For me this realm is what occupies me and keeps me busy. My perception is such that I am always sensitive to it. It is largely disposition that determines the images I see. Neutrality nurtures clarity of perception. Allowing my disposition to be charged with destructive qualifiers, anger resentment blame etc, draws to me that which clouds perception. All image is actual. The images seen are determined by where I choose to be.
The work I am doing as the Mystic Tourist is clearing my mind. It is a project I have been angeling for, for some time. With mysticism one is confident in the path, that wherever I am, I am where I need to be to get to where I am going. Providence assures the constant presence of the components of success. I might have chosen some other thing but what I fell into is this. It is acting to calm and clear my mind. My desired perception is being restored.
