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.

Perception is more powerful than truth, because for many it's all they ever get to see.
Which makes the words we choose ever more important. You have chosen wisely here. ;)

This is superb, Sami. All lines speak of truth--about perception and projection. Indeed what we get is not what we see but what we perceive.
Sometimes when a person's mind is in chaos, he doesn't know when is a thing real or an illusion...or when it is a part of reality or still a part of his dream.
This is very relevant. I commend you for writing this piece, Sami. Bravo!

Sometimes it's difficult to see past our 'own' perceptions, they're so deeply ingrained. Looking at it anew, and in its raw quality before our own preconceived notions is good advice. Surrender and wake up and smell the coffee. Great one Sami! ;-)

"What you see is not what you get, it is what you perceive…Beyond
And have a proper insight of,
The visible realms and the invisible ones."

...I can't express how comforting these lines are to me. Indeed, if it was all about perception with the physical senses, then there would be no intuition and no spiritual forces working in this world. And those are what shape our lives and destinies.

Thank you for such a commendable write on the universal truths at work unseen, yet all around us.

To delve into the mysteries of perception is opening of a great chasm which can be beautiful, but often times find chaos and confusion. Although we foolishly believe we are in control of our feelings and perception, I, for one have found out that I am surely not. I loved this poem, your perception blended perfectly with perception and gave it the room to move as you should have. Sorry, got a bit carried away.
