"You respond to what you perceive, and as you perceive so shall you behave.

Every response you make
to everything you perceive
is up to you,
because your mind determines
your perception of it.

You cannot be aware without interpretation,
for what you perceive is your interpretation."

Excerpted from "Gifts from a Course in Miracles".
