PERCEPTION, REALITY, AND COOKIE THIEVES

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern.” 
― William Blake


"The light for your earthly life is perception. Therefore, if your perception is without fault, your whole life shall be enlightened. If your perception be evil, your whole life shall be darkened by it; if the light for you is darkness, how deep will your darkness become?"
(Matthew 6:22, 23 - Khaboris Manuscript)

First let me say that the meeting/event yesterday at METRON Community was really, really good...extraordinary, actually...thanks so much to all of you who were there, and especially to those of you who sent me such great reviews of our time together, and of the teaching...the series that we just finished up on 'Karma and the Christ-Ethic' has been one of my all time favorites, and it really brought about some positive change in my own personal life, and in my understanding of ONENESS...thanks for having an ear to hear!

I love the above William Blake quote about perception...perception is, no doubt, reality, and the things that we're all learning about it together right now are awesome...I love this journey...look at the phrases in the above Scripture...as I'm are you know, the Khaboris Manuscript is written in aramaic, the language that Jesus spoke..."the light for your earthly life is perception"..."if your perception is without fault, your whole life shall be enlightened"...think about it...your WHOLE LIFE will be enlightened, simply by your perception of it...amazing stuff...

Last week when we went to see Dr. Wayne Dyer, he read this very funny poem, which captures and conveys a very powerful concept about perception as reality...I wanted to share it here with you...enjoy!


The Cookie Thief by Valerie Cox

A woman was waiting at an airport one night
With several long hours before her flight

She hunted for a book in the airport shop
Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop

She was engrossed in her book but happened to see
That the man beside her as bold as could be

Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag between
Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene

She munched cookies and watched the clock
As this gutsy cookie thief diminished her stock

She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by
Thinking "If I wasn't so nice I'd blacken his eye"

With each cookie she took he took one too
And when only one was left she wondered what he'd do

With a smile on his face and a nervous laugh
He took the last cookie and broke it in half

He offered her half as he ate the other
She snatched it from him and thought "Oh brother

This guy has some nerve and he's also rude
Why he didn't even show any gratitude"

She had never known when she had been so galled
And sighed with relief when her flight was called

She gathered her belongings and headed for the gate
Refusing to look back at the thieving ingrate

She boarded the plane and sank in her seat
Then sought her book which was almost complete

As she reached in her baggage she gasped with surprise
There was her bag of cookies in front of her eyes

"If mine are here" she moaned with despair
"Then the others were his and he tried to share"

"Too late to apologize she realized with grief"
That she was the rude one, the ingrate, the thief.

    Been meditating a lot on a lot of things since your word at Metron....perception creates your reality of life......I do believe the puzzle is coming together...however it does not look like the picture i was told it was suppose to look like...so I take the pic on the box out of my mind and only look at each piece as it is placed and creates a picture of truth....ummmmmmm.....thanks....

    That has been my lesson for the past couple of years and is one that I now share with others. It's all about perception. I remember as a child my dad would always prompt me to look at many different angles of a situation. It's always been a "gift" to me, but God has shown me in a more complete way and it has removed any negativity, despair, worry, etc and replaced them with hope, optimism, and peace. It allows an escape from situations that could otherwise bring you down.
