INCREASE YOUR PERCEPTION
Perceiving and knowing
When you perceive something, you perceive it inpresent time, that is right now.
When you direct your perception to a particularindividual, you direct it to a particular area.Perceiving the body
The first thing I perceive is your body. But “you”are not your body, it won’t tell me a lot aboutyou. So, I can use my perception to see beyondyour body.Perceiving the energy field
I can look at your energy field. That will dictatewhat your potential is. Because if you havea ceiling of energy, beyond which you can’texperience anything, that tells me how far youcan go before you fold. For example, if in yourenergy field, you have the potential for stuckanger, that will eventually go solid on you andyou can’t handle the subtle things. So I look atyour energy field and it tells me a lot about you.The Body
The body however is cellular. It is made up ofcells. Cells of the brain, cells of the skin, theinternal organs – everything – including thenervous system. My main focus is the cells ofthe nervous system. As the cells are activated,it effects your thinking; it effects your emotions;it affects your energies. Sometimes you wakeup and you’re willing to slay a few dragons, andthen all of a sudden you haven’t got the energy tofrighten a mouse. This is just cellular reaction.Perceiving the mind
You can also perceive their mind, which is made up of “pictures”. The energy will dictate whatpictures they have in their mind. When you canlook at somebody and perceive their energy, youknow the pictures they have in their mind.Perceive and know for yourself
People like to perceive and know for themselves.Everyone makes the mistake of wanting to telleverybody who someone else is, or what he orshe is doing. However, people really want tolook and know for themselves. They like toexperience something and understand it. Whenyou can really experience someone’s pictures,and get into agreement with the person, it getsvery exciting.Using perception in life - people are fascinating
When you apply perception to life and thepeople in it, suddenly they get fascinating. Howcould you possibly be introverted? How couldyou be worried about your own life? How couldyou be concerned about who you are? Howcould you ever be concerned about impressingpeople if your attention was on understandingpeople? Why, you might find it was the mostenthralling subject you had ever struck in yourlife. It’s endless – just trying to understandsomebody.Everything changes - keep up with it
I may understand you today, but if somethinghappens to you, when I see you again, you aregoing to be different. So if I assume you are thesame as when I first saw you I could be wrong.Creative change is cause over life
People keep changing – that’s part of living.When you are cause over your life and you arechanging for the better, then you can reach happiness. Because you are doing somethingcreative about life.
Effect of life
But if you are stuck in being just an effect of theexternal world all the time – it gets very boring.You are the effect of other people and situations.You are disempowered. You don’t know whoyou are. You are who people tell you you are.People tell you what’s happening around you,instead of you looking for yourself. People say“read the newspapers, that will tell you what’shappening”.
History is seldom told truthfully. It ischanged to suit the person that promoted thehistory. And when you read the newspaper,they’re discussing something that’s happened. That’s history.Play a good game - someone will join you
Have you ever noticed if you start to play a goodgame, someone likes to take it from you, theylike to destroy it? But somebody else wants tojoin you.
Life is like that. Unless we increase ourconsciousness and awareness, our perceptionand knowingness, we’re going to fall a victim toall sorts of things.Trying to “make yourself happy”
We go around trying to make ourselves happy.You’ll never get happy that way. The only wayyou are going to get happy is to make someoneelse happy and then you can experience his orher happiness.
To make someone happy, you have to seesomething in them that they like. It’s no goodonly looking at them critically and seeing whattheir liabilities are. That’s not going to makethem happy.
You see a man and see his potential fornobility and for decency. That makes him say,“Oh yeah. I’m not such a bad fellow. This bloke’sno fool and he can see that in me”.
You see a lady and you see her quality as ahuman being, her capacity for being a friend.The secret in all relationships is to be friends.
Making someone else happy, will force youto look at the qualities of other people nottheir liabilities. If you want to just look at theliabilities of other people you won’t be happyabout that at all. Look at their qualities, and they’ll look at your qualities. That’s a fact of life,but it’s different to what we are taught.
That’s different to hate, revenge, justificationor doing something hurtful to some one else.The attempt to stop people becoming self-motivated
Some areas of society try to stop people frombeing self-motivated. They don’t want you tobe independent about yourself, but want you to be in their control. To do this they get you tobelieve this or believe that, but you must lookand decide for yourself.
If I validate something in you that you’vealways known but you’ve never validated, thenI’m doing a good job. I’m happy with what I’mdoing. That is creative.Excerpts from The Ken Dyers Freedom Lecture Series,
