From a distance, a "time out" from our usual routine thoughts... what do we perceive?
"Perception appears to be automatic, but in fact it is a learned phenomenon. The world you live in including the experience of your body, is completely dictated by how you learned to perceive it. If you can change your perception, you change the experience of your body and your world."
from the book: Ageless Body. Timeless Mind by Deepak Chopra
What a hopeful and inspiring message this is.
This is a book I would highly recommend. Written several years ago (perhaps there is an updated edition?) the insights and wisdom of the author still rings true. I am just finishing this book; it was not a quick read. A wealth of information to digest and consider throughout.
Wishing you a wonderful week!
