Diary #170 - Cultivating Mindfulness 5# - Filter of Perception

5#  Filter of Perception

Experience is always filtered through my perception...which is VERY strong.


If I am in a good mood the person ignoring me is 'probably busy'. If I am in a bad mood they are "%£@$%€" 


How can I recognise the filter though, when it is all I see?  I need to step out, ie observe my thoughts and actions at the same time they are happening.  This is called meta-cognitive awareness and certain mindfulness practices can develop it.


I wonder how being more aware of my Filter of Perception could help with work and life at home...
