What is reality, really?

The Talmud says, "We do not see things as they are.  We see them as we are.”  

We think that what we see is reality, but really it is our perception of reality….which isn’t actually real since we all have different perceptions.  What matters is what is real for you.  The only reality that exists is the one within your own mind.  You cannot live or see or experience outside of your own individual beliefs.  

Beliefs are assumptions about reality, and because you create your experience through your beliefs, you will have many “proofs” that reality operates the way that you think it does.  We influence what we see.  We see what we think is the truth -in our daily experiences and interactions, in our relationships, in ourselves.  We even alter our past memories to reflect what we believe.  We choose to focus on good or bad experiences from our past to reinforce beliefs in our minds about ourselves or our lives.  

So your reality really depends on what you are imagining for yourself and what you believe is possible for you.  This means you can change your reality.  You can change your beliefs.  You can choose to see things in a different way. You can choose different thoughts.  It’s not always easy, but you can do it.  And the more you practice, the easier it gets.  Our mind is really the only thing that we can control, and we do have the power to change it.  

If you change the reality in your mind, you alter the reality that is your future.  And by future, I mean one hour from now, one day, one month, one year, because you are constantly creating and evolving your reality.  Stay positive and focused on the reality that you desire and want to create for yourself.

Affirmations for altering your beliefs about your reality:

“I am aware that I am creating my own reality through my thoughts, beliefs, and expectations.”

“I am changing my reality into that which I desire.”

"My outer reality is changing and evolving to match that of my inner reality which is my imagination.”

“I am attracting abundance, happiness, and success into all areas of my life.”

In love and light,
