THOUGHTS 4186 TO 4190

MY THOUGHTS 4186
SUGGESTION: THE PERCEPTION GAME: MY CLASSES USUALLY HAD TEN TO THIRTY DIFFERENT NATIONALITIES. I WOULD ASK THE STUDENTS ONE BY ONE WHAT THEIR FIRST THOUGHT WAS ABOUT ONE PARTICULAR COUNTRY. THE STUDENTS FROM THAT COUNTRY ARE MINDFULLY LISTEN TO THE IMAGES THAT OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE OF THEIR COUNTRY. THEY ARE NOT TO REACT IN ANYWAY TO THE IMAGES EXPRESSED. WHEN ALL IMAGES HAVE BEEN EXPRESSED WITHOUT INTERRUPTIONS, THE STUDENTS OF THAT COUNTRY SHOULD REFLECT ON THE IMAGES EXPRESSED. THEN THE STUDENT CAN RESPOND, NOT REACT, TO WHAT THEY HAVE HEARD. THEY CAN AGREE, DEFEND, OR EXPRESS HER/HIS OPINION OF HIS/HER OWN COUNTRY WITHOUT NEGATIVE EMOTIONS. THE PURPOSE IS TO DEMONSTRATE HOW ONE’S PERCEPTION OF ONESELF CAN BE DIFFERENT THAN WHAT OTHERS SEE. THIS IS A WONDERFUL LEARNING TOOL IF DONE RIGHT. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4187
IMAGES: ‘WHO YOU ARE’ IS NOT TOTALLY BASED ON HOW YOU SEE YOURSELF. ‘WHO YOU ARE’ IS ALSO BASED ON THE ‘YOU’ THAT YOU PROJECTED TO OTHERS. THERE IS THE ‘YOU’ THAT YOU SEE, THE ‘YOU’ THAT YOUR PARENTS SEE, THE ‘YOU’ THAT YOUR FRIENDS SEE. THE ‘YOU’ THAT YOUR COMMUNITY SEES, THE ‘YOU’ THAT YOUR TEACHERS SEE, THE ‘YOU’ THAT YOUR FAITH LEADER SEES, THE ‘YOU’ YOUR PARTNER SEES, THE ‘YOU’ THAT STRANGERS SEE, AND THE ‘YOU’ THAT FACEBOOK SEES. ALL CAN BE VERY DIFFERENT DEPENDING ON HOW ‘YOU’ CHOOSE TO ‘PROJECT YOURSELF’ TO OTHERS.EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4188
IMAGES: WHAT ONE SEES AS AN IMAGE OF ‘ONE’S GOD’ IS REALLY A REFLECTION OF ONE’S THOUGHTS ABOUT ONE’S SPIRITUALITY. EVERYONE’S IMAGE OF HIS/HER GOD IS VALID FOR HER/HIM BECAUSE IT IS A REFLECTION OF ONE’S INNER BEING’S PERCEPTIONS ON HOW ONE SEES THE COSMOS. AS ONE BECOMES MORE AND MORE CONSCIOUSLY AWARE AND ONE HAS SPIRITUAL GROWTH, THOSE IMAGES WILL CHANGE. REMEMBER THAT THAT IS VALID FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL. WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO DISAPPROVE OF ANYONE’S IMAGE OF HIS/HER PERCEPTIONS OF HER/HIS IMAGES OF THE ALMIGHTY. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4189
UNDERSTANDING: TO UNDERSTAND THE COSMOS AND THE MEANING OF YOUR LIFE, YOU MUST FIRST LOOK AROUND YOU AND OBSERVE THE WORLD AROUND YOU. THEN GO INWARD AND FIND THE ANSWERS FROM THE CLUES PRESENTED BY THE WORLD OUTSIDE OF YOU. THE TRUE ANSWERS ARE TO BE FOUND ONLY WITHIN YOU. THEY ARE NOT OUTSIDE OF YOU. THE OUTSIDE WORLD IS ONLY YOUR GUIDE OR MENTOR THAT PRESENTS SITUATIONS TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IS ALREADY WITHIN YOU. EmilKoval©2013

MY THOUGHTS 4190
QUESTION 458: IF EVERYTHING ON THIS WORLD IS A CREATION OF AND A MANIFESTATION OF ‘GOD’, THEN, HOW CAN ANYONE SO EASILY POISON OR DESTROY THE WORLD AROUND ONESELF? EmilKoval©2013
