Bird's eye view vs Fork road view:
Motivational speakers and people generally keep saying what you perceive as a problem is related to the way you look at things. I've tried reorienting myself a few times but this change never really gets ingrained in me. Its usually just temporary and if you stop paying attention, you revert to your original behavior. For example: positive thinking techniques etc. You could create a strong pattern by repetition and habit but this would not stem from real understanding so in essence it is still vulnerable to thought manipulations by other people.
Nowadays, I started looking at solving this in a different way. I think "A real change in perception would be more from WHERE you perceive the problem from rather than how you perceive it". Its like understanding truth at a higher level and comprehending how things fit into the larger picture help in literally eliminating some problems or drastically reduce their emotional effects.
There are some profound truths like:
- "All meaning is self created, in essence an illusion"
- "The body is something that is within the field of awareness and we are the awareness itself. The awareness is everywhere, universal, shapeless and formless"
