two perceptions of reality: a literal perception, and a spiritual perception. When you have a
literal perception of reality you aren't seeing the big picture. You haven't gathered all the
information. You're making choices and decisions in life without having all the facts. You're
basing your life on only half of the big picture without seeing the other half.
Imagine sitting on the ground looking out of an airplane before it begins to
take off. When the plane is on the ground, your perception is limited; you can only see a few
people, buildings and other planes. But, as the plane begins to soar into the sky you begin to
see more and more planes and buildings and roads that you never even knew existed. As the plane
reaches thirty thousand feet, you can even see a bigger picture. The area didn't change-nothing
changed but your altitude and view. You saw a better view of what the area looked like.
We have all been taught, programmed and conditioned to look at life from the
ground level, a narrow, shallow and limited viewpoint. This shallow perception of reality and
lack of knowledge is causing you to think and believe in a way that causes you to make choices
and decisions that don't cause your life to be truly happy, healthy and fulfilling. In other
words it's causing you not to reach your God-given potential in each and every area of your

It is possibly causing your peace and happiness to be limited and less than fulfilling.
It is possibly causing your income to be inadequate or less than you would like it to
It is possibly causing you to be in a job or career that isn't your calling/niche, that
you don't have passion for, and can't put your heart and soul into.
It is possibly causing the amount of free time that you have to be limited and less
than you would like.
It is possibly causing your marriage and or relationship to be less than the best and
It is possibly causing your parenting skills to be lacking and raising your kids to be
challenging and stressful.
The person who looks at life from a literal perception doesn't know that he/she
is partially blind. They think that life is what you see, not realizing that there's more to
life than meets the eye. They think that what they're seeing in life is all there is to life.
They live their lives from the ground level, not realizing that there is a bigger picture.
However, when you free your mind from all the assumption, opinions and erroneous
thoughts and beliefs that have been programmed into you and are holding you down, you rise to a
higher level and get a clearer and different view of reality.
Your elevated view of the bigger picture gives you a better understanding of
life. Your reality of life is no longer solely based on what you literally see and hear. You
realize spiritual things that you didn't realize when you were bogged down. You realize that
behind the scenes God is in control and there is more to life than meets the literal eye and
You live your life from the inside out. You spiritually understand things that
others don't understand. You spiritually see things that others can't see and you spiritually
hear revelations/wisdom from God that others can't hear. These spiritual revelations and visions
guide you to make choices and decisions that bless you abundantly in each area of your life.
