perception is projection



When we go to a cinema and watch a movie, we get to experience (in some way) what we are watching. Our lives are exactly the same. We all have a movie screen in front of us, throughout our lives. What we project up on to that screen is what we get to go through, what we experience.


I remember an interview I had quite a few years ago. There were ten people going for two positions and we were all in the waiting room together. I began talking to the other applicants while we were waiting and it became very clear, very quickly that most people were extremely nervous. 

From talking to them, I began to realise that most of them had a lot more experience than I did, but even so, they were worried about not getting the job. As the interviews started, people were invited into the interview room, and then after about twenty to thirty minutes, they would return and sit down again. I was the second last person to be interviewed.


As I was called in, I decided that even though I didn’t have as much experience as a lot of the other applicants, I was confident that I was going to get this job. I walked in there as if I had already been told that the job was mine.


They asked me a couple of questions and then after about ten minutes they thanked me and asked me to wait outside with the others. I was in there for only half the time the others were. I wasn’t sure what this meant but I knew I had done what I needed to do.


The panel came out after the last interview and announced the names of the two successful applicants. I was one of them. The others left and we were given our induction. During the induction one of the panel pulled me aside and told me she had never interviewed such a confident person. That’s why I wasn’t in there for so long and why I got the job. What I projected up on my screen is what I got to experience.


So what are you projecting up on your screen? Are you experiencing everything you want to experience in your life? If not then maybe it’s time to change the movie. Start projecting the movie you want to experience. You wouldn’t choose to go and watch a horror movie if you wanted to have a laugh and feel relaxed. So why would you choose to project a movie up on the screen of your life that you really don’t want to experience?


Change your thoughts and feelings, which will change your focus. You can’t project something unless you are thinking about it and really feel it. This communication within your mind, will control your inner projector.
