    Perspective Determines the Viewpoint.

    I not only believe that we create our own reality but I know it to be true.  I have been fortunate enough to have been able to see this first hand in my own life as well as in the lives of others.  I think the one reason that I believe this so strongly is also because...

    I Whole-heartedly Believe This

    ... but I think it is difficult to use this principle for "personal gain" because the mechanics behind it get very complex very quickly.  I heard something recently that serves as a good example of what I mean: Suppose that you treat people badly, when you speak...

    Solipsism is the philosophical idea that "My mind is the only thing that I know exists." Solipsism is an epistemological or ontological position that knowledge of anything outside the mind is unjustified. The external world and other minds cannot be known and might not...

    I Already Like Tomorro

      Yesterday was horrible.   Builders on the roof. They dismantled chimneys and devastated the lawn barely starting.  There are piles of rubble and construction materials all around the house, yes, yesterday was depressing. When imaging what will be happening...

    I live in Pennsylvania, that's my reality.  I created Pennsylvania.  Some of the duller parts, like Pittsburgh, Harrisburgh, and Scranton I farmed out to sub-contractors.

    So How Do I Change?

    What we think, we become. I get that.  The concept is not that hard for me to grasp.  But how do I go about changing something that has become a core belief about myself?The Plaid I want to be is *cough* quite a bit slimmer than my current reality.  I can see myself at my...

    Maybe we can only create a better reality if we are thankful for the reality that we live in now.

    My Understanding

    Perhaps I understand well the people I've been dealing with lately but I've been pretty good at guessing what's going to happen next.  That helps with how to prepare for how I'm going to react and controlling my own reality.

    Especially As A Group

    I believe that, especially as a society. "A dream that you dream alone, it's only a dream that you dream alone But a dream that we dream together is reality". (Raul Seixas- not official translation)

    Isn't it basic knowledge that we create our own reality? We define what is real and live our lives accordingly? Or am I mistaken? I have no idea.

    All About Attitude

    We can either see the glass as half full or half empty! I mean sometimes I think I have it pretty rough but there's always someone with it rougher and you have to look positively on what you do have! That's the key to being happy :)

    Desire and Focus

    This has worked for me in my life. It’s so much easier to see in work in hindsight. . Looking back I can see I have the life I wanted a few years ago. I had the desire and focus all I had to do was walk forward and let myself have the life I wanted without feeling guilty...

    You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet!

    Is the three-dimensional world we are experiencing real? Is this the sum total of our existence? Various philosophies and religions have suggested that we also exist on other levels of reality, and that these levels or planes are equally real.Current theoretical physicists...

    Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events which are causally unrelated occurring together in a supposedly meaningful manner. In order to count as synchronicity, the events should be unlikely to occur together by chance. The concept does not question, or compete with...

    I Know I Do,

    and I'm working on making my reality more bearable....but not in a New Age sense. I just know the same events can be perceived differently depending on our prior experiences and whether we could understand them. Some fears can be deconstructed . We may make reality better by...

    I Reject This Reality and Substuite My Own

    Yes, I beleive that to a very large extent we can influence our enviroment and mental state. There are times and place when we find ourselves in situations.  I liken it to when a frog discovers he is on a sinking lily pad. The best course is jump to another one and keep...

    Of Course We Do, We Have To!
