How do you Define Reality? Or Is Someone else Defining it for You?
WHAT IS REAL?
Discovering the truth for oneself is a journey. It should be a process which empowers you and enables you to be a complete person, a holistic being, capable of loving oneself in a healthy balance, and able to love others as oneself as well. What affects one affects us all, and we are more interconnected than we know (or maybe even care to admit at times). How do you know if what you think you know or believe is real ? How do you evaluate new information? How do you make the choices you do? What compels you to your final choice? When you understand how the mind works, and what it’s role is in cognition, and in cognitive distortion, then you will be able to be free of the things which hold you back in life. Those beliefs and ideas which were implanted into your subconscious mind which keep you stuck, unable to move forward in life.
Some of those choices you make, of course, being life-long commitments, or choices which have certain consequences, or those which affect your loved ones, your community and even, our world (our common home)? If the world is ever to be healed and restored, the ones who trod upon it must themselves be healed and restored, because until they are, they will not see the harmonic balance which is so necessary to support healthy life on the planet. What we experience in the outer, physical world is a reflection, of what our collective state of consciousness is. What do we dwell in mostly as a race?
If I may digress for a moment here just as a side note, I see a lot of people who have decided to use race as well as religious fundamentalism or politics and such, to judge people instead of trying to understand them. Where will that get us ultimately? Where has it gotten us in the past? Can we forgive the past and those who promoted those things which were used to bring us harm, or which caused us in the past to harm one another, and can we learn from the mistakes, evolving higher in our heart-centered spiritual essence to bring unity and yet allow diversity? One love expressed in many diverse ways. Truth is our freedom; Love is our power 🙂
If we cannot learn to love and grow together as One Human Family and Race, then we will be tricked ever more into giving away our ability to be free and have the kind of peace we all desire, no matter your race or religion really. So then whatever color your skin, you are part of the Human Race, by the way, so please go past the labels and as we go into the heart space of unity and the understanding of higher truth, we will see we are as children of the rainbow, which come in many shades and tones which make up the spectrum of the rainbow of humanity.) The importance is to know not the color of someone’s skin, for that is merely the covering, but rather, more importantly, ask yourselves, what is the color of love?
It is important to remember how closely tied in religious ideologies, which are imprinted subconsciously in our minds, and which then alter what the person perceives consciously, are indeed seen as a personal attack often times if questioned. This personal identification issue is the core of what so many adherents to the organized religions believe, not to mention the confirmation bias that keeps it in place. Freedom from dogma of religions’ is the start of the emergence of the true self and the development of our conscience which shows us how to love each other, and our consciousness which shows the higher understanding of why we should, and why that itself is a higher reality than religion.
Soon the Ascending Path http://www.ascending-path.com will be ‘official’ lol and we look will look at this and many other related things as we all learn to grow and love toward our collective higher vision to make the world a better place by starting within our own selves–our minds and our hearts.
