Or you could just say… “Believing is seeing.” Simpler still 'Change your mind and you change the world." (Oracle of Delphi - so I have been told.)
When I was into essoteric thought I always liked; “You are what you eat.”
Physically - eat healthy stay healthy
Emotionally - Too much of anything is probalby not good for perception.
Intellectually - Garbage in and garbage out.
I once met with a group of attorneys and talked about temperament types and jury selection. (Your choice of music says a lot about you. So do bumper stickers on your car.)
Question #1: How important is Christmas to you?: LOL - If you are the defense the only answer you ever want to hear is, ‘It’s not. I don’t care much for holidays.’ “It’s not. I’m a JW,” would be a horrible reply.
You can not ask, “Are you religious.” You can ask, “Do you have a bumper sticker on your car and what does it say?” or “If you had a bumper sticker on your car, what would it say?”
Perception is ‘NOT’ demonstrably true. It is in fact, “Demonstrably False in All Cases.” Our senses are limited and can not take in all aspects of the reality around us. Our opinions are frequently lacking the objectivity or information required to make a better or more informed decision. The fact of the matter is that we pretty much just do the best we can. And the rest is “Confirmation Bias.” We think we are getting everything right and functioning well because we remember the hits and simply forget the misses.
