Reality, as we experience it, is nothing more than a reflection of our deeply held beliefs and convictions.  We now have over six billion people in the world, so we  now have over six billion conflicting realities all attempting to co -exist and demanding validation!  Is it any wonder we battle and war against  one another ?

Wayne Dyer is  fond of saying “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”  This is, of course, his way of saying that we never see things as they are, but rather as we are.  We spend countless hours and infinite amounts of creative energy  attempting to persuade others to see the world as we do.  We have politicians who invest entire careers in telling us how we should perceive things; all while spinning to fit their own personal agenda.

Of course, we all engage in the game of political posturing; attempting to persuade others to our point of view, so we can experience the false security that comes with having our view of the world validated.  If, for one minute, we could all step back aand realize that none of us have it completely right, and there is value (not to mention fascination and humor) in listening to each others’ distorted points of view, we would open  a window for reason to prevail.  In that brief monent , we might simultaneously see that we are all wrong and all right, all at the same time.  None of us see things as they truly are, and all of us deserve to be valued and respected; now the window is open for an experience in oneness.

We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.  That is how it was created to be.  The world was not intended to be a place for validating our personal points of view.  It was, rather, intended to serve as a mirror for evaluating  how we are doing in learning  to love one another unconditionally.  That is how I see it and I do recognize –it’s just my point of view.  What’s yours?
