“Go then, there are other worlds than these.”
― Stephen King, The Gunslinger

What is perception? If we live in a box our whole lives without crawling out and learning about the world do we just become cardboard versions of ourselves. There is so much more to see than the limitations set to us by the world we grew up in.

Have you ever picked up a piece of rock and closed your eyes while holding it. Have you ever heard the possibilities whispered in it? That piece of rock may become a piece of art or a doorway to something beautiful. Have you ever wondered why people are so different and unique or do you if you see a stranger that is different than you as a monster?

I had a neighbour that thought that everyone different than her perception must be of the devil. That is Dark Ages thinking. In the dark ages if people did not believe the same as you, they were burned at the stake, whole villages were murdered. Look it up.

There are more worlds out there than the ones we live in. Instead of judging, climb out of the box and burn the fucker, because it keeps you from finding beauty in a world of possibilities.
