Perception/……………By Sami Khalil

It is not all in the perception and projection. It is in the insight of things.See the big picture and not just the small one...Very important and necessary…A philosophy writes.


The Poem:



That which surrounds me…in all its rugged truths


That which thrives around…in the seen and the unseen


I awake! Like all the tattered souls…?


To higher orders- lower ones


To extraordinary things- ordinary ones


To natural beauties- man-made ones


To objective matters- subjective ones


Even to perfect (sunrises, sunsets) - imperfect ones


Not restless, but under the madness of deflowered thoughts

of perception, searching for raw meanings and lines between

space and time.


For it is not all in the perception and projection

When minds dance in the wondering of,

Actions and reactions,

Plain sights and hind-sights. It is in the discernment of things.


And for that matter, perceptions require fairness and more than single traces,

in the surrender of concern and confusion.


What you see is not what you get; it is what you perceive, beyond...

And have a proper "conception" of,

The visible realms and the invisible ones.


Then…I awake! To that which surrounds me?

Perception is both a blessing and a curse these days. We often see things as we wish them to be then get upset when it is not as we imagined yet attribute it to what we saw. Maybe this is why I'm on such a honesty kick with many people now - you want to know what I am thinking about something, ask me.

As always, wonderful reading your works Sami.

This is awesome! I really like the idea that you only really see what you perceive around you, but there is so much more, and what you're seeing might not even be real. I liked the contrasting views that you awoke to, like extraordinary vs. ordinary..

So right...a lot is perception...but I prefer any vantage point that chooses the positive side of anything. Now I'm not hopelessly lost in optimism but I would choose it over pessimism and when it is not my own perception then it has to make sense. However, I do respect any philosophy created for the sake of art which I love and so reading this Sam, is a treasure chest of words.

There are times that we are exposed to almost similar problems/challenges but we have different reactions because of our different perceptions. if we have negative mindset, there's a tendency that we see negative things/faults but when we are positive, we can always find beauty in every challenges. As they say, perception is one of the factors that could shape reality. thought provoking.

So many levels to perception and it haunts sometimes...one perception is twisted by another and before we know it we are confused and enlightened, brought down and dampened, elated and hopeful...all and more...and of course all and more are perceptions themselves...seems to never end...poignant piece Sami, great articulation x

This is an intriguing format, and a freeflowing thought -- I almost think it would lend itself to prose.

A beautiful and intelligent write, Sami....
"For it is all in the perception(inner or outer) and projection
When minds dance in the wondering of,
Actions and reactions,
Plain sights and hind-sights."

Perception versus reality is so complicated to think about. In the end we decide which of our perceptions to accept as real, eh? It's frustrating that our perceptions are so limited and sad that we harbor so many mis-perceptions about people that we miss a lot of the good in them. I always try to see people's actions in light of the "inside" part of us that Jacob speaks of because we understand so little about what they're going through.
