What In The Reality is Going On!?

Reality, real-ity..What is this? I can tell you what Webster’s read to me when I asked, he said, and I quote,

“1:the quality or state of being real.

2.a (1): a real event, entity, or state of affairs <his dream became a reality> (2): the totality of real things and events <trying to escape from reality>

b: something that is neither derivative nor dependent but exists necessarily
3: television programming that features videos of actual occurrences (as a police chase, stunt, or natural disaster) —often used attributively <reality TV>
in reality : in actual fact. “
But Einstein told me that “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”

So, who do I believe? Well, Web, I know you’ve been around since 1843, but I mean can you really give an answer to a question rooted in the belly of infinite possibilities? For starters your first definition of the word has the word in it, that’s a no no.  Your second definition seems like you’re trying to self-explain something that is not even fully comprehensible to your own minds eye. And thirdly, Reality TV, really?  It may exist in the actuality of our understanding of ‘real time,’ but reality TV is only as real as its marketing ability to sell that it is real.  There is the reality that is fashioned for us or that we have fashioned for ourselves, than there is the trees, the mud, the wind, love, universe, rain, imagination; the screaming breath of nature and limitless possibilities planted in the depths of truth, that as humans, from birth we know and feel, and as we get older we sometimes embrace, but mostly, we limit. When we are kids EVERYTHING, and I mean everything is possible, from flying to changing the world. It isn’t till many get older that flying becomes just flying in a plane and changing the world shifts to changing my style or re-arranging the furniture in my room; limitless possibilities scrambled, over-cooked and boiled into a place with walls and limitations.

I think said it best, “One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.”

Or perhaps you be the judge, what do you perceive, what do you see or think is real? Maybe we will die and re-appear an infinite amount of times, and this idea will most likely always hold a question mark behind it, or  maybe we already know the answer, perhaps, the Skin Horse explains it best.

The answer very well may be, that  there is no tangible reality and that, that is why we all have so many different experiences. That the only thing that stands as the pillar of reality is the feeling of LOVE, the one place where the feeling of infinite possibility is not created, it just is; in-love, we are limitless. And anything else around that are simply branches that, we develop or create over time through consciousness and the interpretations of our experiences defined as good or bad, like a limitless, non-shaped piece of clay, turned into a cup, and known as nothing more than a cup. We define our reality based upon what we think, interpret or are told.

Blaha blaha blah reality..blaha blaha surreality….no amount of thinking or writing about this will be solved in the space of letters. “Paralysis leads to analysis,” my dad used to say, and he’s right. This question is a tiered one, but with the realization that whatever we experience we’ve created inside our imagination through the movement of our thoughts and feelings, then the question becomes an important one, because the fact is, we all want to be high-level creators, making a reality that reflects the best side of everything that is beautiful and good in the world.


So when ‘bad’ or ‘good’ things happen, in changing the way we perceive the situation can in essence change the effect of that situation, thus changing our lives. I suppose the goal is to attempt to ignore what we perceive as bad and let go of the connect-the -dot mind-set we have established based upon previous experiences or our perception of reality. The fact is,  there is always soooo much room for expansion and possibility in-between our cranium walls and beating hearts, that wherever we put our energy and weight on is what we will attract more, that becomes our reality.

Oh the power of repeated suggestion, upon the mind, upon the cells, upon the world.

So I leave it to you to answer, what is the true face of reality?
