To me greater perception comes with understanding the world around you as well as understing yourself, so you can place yourself in that reality.
To understand the world around me I live. I experience life. I try to absorb knowledge. They say that when the europeans arrived in the New World,
that the indians couldn't see their ships at the sea, because it was something so alien to them that they just couldn't distinguish it from the
background. That didn't last forever, though, and after a while they managed to see what was infront of their eyes.
Just through experience alone we can enhance our perception of the world around us. Travelling to other countries, meeting new cultures, expanding
your mind by trying to see the world through new perspectives. All that helps.
When I dropped Catholicism and started to delve into esoterism, I thought that religion was not the way and I could find all my answers in
Today I see it differently. I search for answers in science, religions, philosophy, esoterism, mysticism, anything that can trigger my mind into a
thought process that could allow me to reach new conclusions.
Knowing the world around you helps you to put yourself in perspective in that reality which helps you understanding more about yourself.
On the other hand, some inner searching is also good. I also like to meditate, to look at the stars at night, to let my mind wander. At the end of
every single day I reflect about it during the shower. It's automatic to me. I can't help it. The moment I hit the shower my mind goes through a
process of reviewing my day, both the good and bad stuff that happened.
I am trying to find some time to begin exercises in astral traveling and OOBE. Anything that could answer some questions and raise a few more.
Also, this inner search, the more you know yourself, the better you can also understand the world around you.
In conclusion, many times we say that we, humans, are broken. Like we are defected. We only use 10% of our brain. We can't see this or that. I don't
think we are broken. We are just conditioned. Conditioned to what we know to be the truth. Conditioned to think in a certain way. Conditioned to live
in survival mode(go to school, go to college, get married, get a job, retire and die). etc etc...
