Evolving perspectives towards life

Came across this article which I find very interesting yet meaningful.

Primarily, it says about the three distinct spectrum of perceptions one seeing things throughout his/her life.

Spectrum #1: See mountain, perceive it as mountain; See water, perceive it as water.

People in this stage have always been sheltered from the storm. They are naive. They just have not been taken through a bumpy road yet, just yet!!! Life is seemingly a bed of roses. They do face shits in life, but somebody else has paved the road for them. They are still very much clean and clear. They are just ready to cross a river where there are bloody crocodiles in existence. They are carefree, tend to be a trouble maker too, but it's all right, because there will be someone else to cover the ass for them wilfully. Majority of individuals who have not stepped into society belong here, although there could be some people who been part of the society for some time.Of course, there are cases of exception.

Spectrum #2: See mountain, perceive it NOT as mountain; See water, perceive it NOT as water.

People in this category have been through a lot. They know the fact that they are riding on a bumpy road. Say they are crossing the river, they know that there are bloody crocodiles right beside or ahead of him/her. It's either they take the crocodiles down or they avoid the crocodiles to make it though or to pull it off.

They are trouble-averse. They tend to be sceptical, insecure and high on their guard. They could be masking themselves in the name of hypocrisy. They would rather choose to stay out of trouble than anything else. They may be pretentiously cool, pretentiously fine although they are not really so. They may find themselves lost in the capitalism world. They try to race with others, race with time, race with the space. At some occasion, they forget about what really contributes to the wellness of his/her life. 

I am here!!! It's time to move on.

They see river, and heck that they think it's Amazon River, it'd be deadly.

Spectrum #3; See mountain, STILL perceive it as mountain, See water, STILL perceive it as water.

These are the group of people who has great piece in mind. They can take out relationship between outside world and themselves. However the environment, the surrounding, the outlook fare, he/she is not bothered and has got very little interest . They have come to a point where nothing else matters except for what really matters for him/her. They have got things sorted out pretty clearly. They know what is really important for them. They go after their own interests are, rather than interests what most people going after.

Most of the time, this group of people are financially strong, or they have got  a good financial planning.
However, people who are as rich as millionaires may not necessarily be in this category, unless they are ready to curb the desire of wanting more.

They see mountain, and heck that they know it's Everest Mount or something, but so what, they are just hiking near the ridges, rather than heading to the peak like most would want to do.
