Getting Real with Reality


This post reaches deep into our processes of thought, conception and self-awareness just as it reaches deep into what might actually be reality, what the author calls true reality, because an individual’s concepts are simply that, and true reality is actually beyond our comprehension.

Aspects of Reality

Our reality is what we experience and sense in all areas of our perception. The same goes for every individual. Even with the enormous wealth of information available to us, we are simply unable to comprehend what true reality might be.

That is why I consider this post worth publishing. Not to put down our capabilities of perception, suggested as being limited, but to give us a better understanding that what we perceive as reality should not be taken for granted as true reality.

Is there such a thing as a true reality – perhaps the whole world is a dream or a dance of consciousness dreaming itself alive.

What is reality?

Merely conditioning, based on beliefs? Or something more?

The real reality is within. What you see is an illusion, and only reflects what your brain is capable of showing you via its own mechanisms. Technically and physiologically speaking, you’re unable to see the truth that you live in an illusion that can equally imprison or free you.

Stop reality.

A human being is a part of a whole—called by us ‘universe’—a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~ Einstein

Are we real? Are we even capable of seeing what is real?

We read the world wrong and say that it deceives us.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore

All we can do is be open to what is true, and grip on to what we can feel with our senses, and I include all six senses in this. The era of gurus is over. Consciousness is shifting on the planet and as human beings, we are evolving to a higher level. In fact, we have no choice to evolve or to die out. Such is the nature of life.

Nature’s way is simple and easy but men prefer what is intricate and artificial.” ~ Lao Tzu-

See all of this fascinating article at the source post on ‘The Healer’s Journal”,  here.

Obviously this is the author’s conception, but it seems reasonable to open our minds to pondering this deeper understanding of reality.

On the other hand, our reality, our existence and our environment, is the only reality that we have personally got, so to speak. And that is the only reality that we are likely to understand.

    I personally have little tolerance for idealism. Humanity has evolved senses and brain to survive in the dojo called nature. Hug a wild polar bear, how real is the experience of being eaten by a polar bear?

    I have a respect for animism, those types of people see reality on two levels, the concrete temporal world of form and appearance, then the spiritual essence of the energy patterns underneath. Reality could be the code and the manifestation of running the code like one might experience when running a software program on a computer.

    Sir Winston is of the opinion that reality is simply what we find to be true.
    Best regards from Mr Midnight, Sir Winston and myself. 🙂

    I did enjoy this TED talk despite it being relegated to a TED bin.

    This one, too, was interesting and also dumped in the banned bin.

    Everyone’s reality is different. Viewed from the centre of the universe that is their eyes.

    Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
    We make our own reality!!!

  6. It is what it is! What is reality differs according to the point of perception. How can one create objectivity about such topics! It would be interesting to compare our perception to an intelligent alien species. (I hope one day we will get the opportunity – provided it’s a friendly race!!!)
