Getting Real with Reality
Posted on July 31, 2013 by Ken McMurtrie
1 VoteThis 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 (Photo credit: woodsman_dave)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.
See all of this fascinating article at the source post on ‘The Healer’s Journal”, here.

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.
“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-
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.
