In reality, perception drives all. That’s how you know that nothing is truly real, our perception is all that is real; the rest is an illusion.

But isn’t it funny how time is purely driven from perception?

There are days life seems to be so s l o w. And there are days life seems to be so fast. But maybe those days are just reflections of our mind – our thoughts run fast one day, slow another. Experience is an external projection of our inner realities, so time really isn’t dependent on what’s happening outwardly. Time is dependent on what’s churning deeply within, time is dependent on belief.

But isn’t it funny how fear is purely driven from perception?

Fear is the greatest trick we’ve ever known, it’s the greatest illusion. Something that seems so real is truly all created from within. In moments with fear, you may feel suffocated by its strong pull or lost in its dark tunnels. But the voices in our heads are ultimately just different versions of our beliefs. If we truly listen, we can truly live. Fear lets us break free and when we do break free, we can see the fear in the outside world because our perception has become fearless.

But isn’t it funny how thoughts are purely driven from perception?

We think, we talk, we listen, we create – we live. In all that we live, thoughts emerge and become alive through our inner and outer realities. Somedays, those thoughts are foggy in their messages, visions, intentions and tricks. Other days, those thoughts are clear, comforting and organized. But truly, it all depends on the way we look at it. I’m sure in all those different days, our thoughts are actually lifeless. But what’s happening extrinsically changes the way we view what’s happening intrinsically – that’s how we give our thoughts life. We know we feel most alive when we’re in that thoughtless zone, and that’s when I remember thoughts are just another form of illusion.

Isn’t it funny?

There are days I find this life and all its many mysteries, beliefs, perceptions and illusions pretty funny, today is one of those days. Be fearless and free -Ace

    Aw this was such a lovely, reflective write, Ace! “..our thoughts run fast one day, slow another” I never gave this much thought but this resonates deeply and it makes you question fear on a kinder level, because it’s sort of part of ourselves 🤔 Thought-provoking and beautiful as always!💖

    Indeed, we are all here living based on perceptions! Darkness is scary to me but it is calming to so many people. I love adventure parks while others fear it. It’s all a perception of what we think is safe. I love how you have described time ❤

  7. Life does seem funny when we tilt our head and look at it from a certain angle 😉😊 how our perceptions play a trick on us as if – and yet perceptions are the only way we get to look at life really! There is only some who can look at their own perceptions and smile at them, it takes a great level of awareness and personal growth to be able to do that. I also agree with you about time being relative – at times I have felt I need a whole 72 hours to feel like I have truly lived a day, slow and steady. A great post Ace!

    Love your reflections, dearest Ace. It is funny. When we can actually see what’s happening, the world becomes a playground; and, we do stumble from time to time, yet inside if the knowing you are pointing to, there is freedom from the self created hallucinations. A lovely, lovely, reflective post. I love it. ❤️😊❤️

    This piece is a bit philosophical one. Perceptions vary from person to person and for the same person from situation to situation. Time and perception are both relative. This is a difficult topic, but as usual, you have dealt with in a very apt and beautiful manner. So nice of you, Ace! Thanks for such an amazing piece👌😃💐

  17. Yes, perception is everything my sweet Ace…. It is our reality and it is constantly changing, just as reality does. Sometimes it’s more noticeable…other times we need to “slow ourselves down (meditation,,prayer) to be able to even .
    What you say about fear is a big truth..We create those scenarios right inside our own brains…That is what that video-poem, “Float” is all about.. Just lay in the dark in the middle of the ocean and let your imagination scare you to death. Sometimes our own creativity…works against our tranquility…We can imagine anything we want and many times that slips out of our controls..Fear..flips the dials and who is now in control?
    I too love to ponder this topic…I am fascinated by consciousness, the subconscious and our perceptions that color our view of the world. Thank you deep mind for putting this out in the conversation..I am sure we could stay up all night and more, discussing it:):) 🤗❤️🌹🌕🌈🌟✨

  19. Once I read somewhere, ” Everyone has there own perception of life, couldn’t find out what’s right and what’s wrong but I can say there’s some reality in all. ” …. As soon as I finished reading this, the very first thing that clicked my mind, is your blog’s theme i.e. fearless free soul and ofcourse this isn’t the first time…. So, I would say, isn’t it funny, ah not funny, isn’t it a miracle, that one fine day, I found someone with fearless free soul…..
