Suffering Lies in Your Perception of the Fact and Not the Fact Itself

by seo on July 6, 2009

Career Mission’s Chief Executive Officer, A. Harrison Barnes as he related the cause of all suffering in life to misplaced perceptions.

Any suffering that you are experiencing in the world lies in your perception of the person, place, or thing you are experiencing and not in the person, place, or thing itself. How we perceive things and the world around us in a large part determines whether or not we are going to be happy.

Our perceptions are often clouded by a set of assumptions, which most often are not true at all. Our lives are typically controlled by a massive number of assumptions about this or that and our happiness is determined by the nature of these assumptions. The vast array of assumptions that control each of our lives is incredible.

One of the greatest assumptions most of us in the world have, deals with our relationship with the divine, or God. We all have a different idea of who God and the divine are. Your perception of who God is generally shapes your personal relationship with God. For example, if you have a belief that God dislikes you, then you are going to see the world as constantly punishing you when bad things happen in your life. If you have a belief that God loves you, then you are going to see the world as constantly giving you positive reinforcement when good things happen in your life. Your assumptions about people, God, the world and everything around you are what create your reality.

In your career and life you are governing everything by a set of assumptions. The number of assumptions available for you to feel bad about are limitless. The job market and the world will respond to you based on the assumptions you have about them. If you change your assumptions for the better, your career and life will change.

The best way to change your life is to change your assumptions about the world around you. Suffering lies in the perception of the fact and not the fact itself.
