Reality is a Construct.

“Reality is a construct. You are what you think you are.” ― Psyche Roxas-Mendoza.

What is reality? It does not exist. At least as it affects each of us. None of us sees, hears, feels, smells, or tastes reality. All we truly experience and that truly exist is our own perception of reality. Our perception is our own reality. Hence, reality for each of us is different. We create what becomes real for us. I know this is difficult to receive for religious folks, but it does not change the veracity of its truth. This is a well-researched area.

Our brain, in physical terms, but our mind, in metaphysical terms (and more accurately so), plays a trick on each of us. You do realize our experience is dictated by our mind, not any of our windows (eyes, ears, skin, nose, tongue). Our windows are mere receptacles. What we receive is our mind’s interpretation of the entry, not the entry itself. Hence, two people can have the same entry, but different realities. Their mind gave different interpretations to the same thing.

The mind’s interpretation of any particular event is not pure. It is adulterated by our experience of life to date and the interpretation we have given to such. The mind works in such a way to maintain congruency. It does not seek a new pathway, unless forced to do so. The active part of our mind keeping this congruency is our subconscious mind, which is the most potent part of our being. It has sway until and unless it is interrupted by our conscious mind.

A fearful person will see fear in everything and seek to be more fearful. A loving person will see love everywhere and seek to be more loving. Everyone sees things according to their person, and seek to be more of what they already are, unless and until THEY CHOOSE otherwise, and work to create a new reality. The garden of our mind produces after its kind.

“You cannot take the mild approach to the weeds in your mental garden. You have got to hate weeds enough to kill them. Weeds are not something you handle; weeds are something you devastate.” (Jim Rohn)

You are the gardener of your own mind. Tend your garden to produce the reality you want.

St. Akin de Great.
