You have the power to change your perception, your emotions, your beliefs, your inner being Quoting: Divinity
I agree, but what we disagree on, is the degree of the effect it will have on your outer environment, especially, with things that you have no control over.
It seems to me that the concept of You Create Your Own Reality only works with YOU. You have the power to change your perception, your emotions, your beliefs, your inner being....all this changes your outer world. I know because I have done this in my own world. Quoting: Divinity
If you are so sure, i hypothetically dare you to accept my challenge, and go meditate in the slummiest of inner city projects, where the crack dealers hang out.
Don't lie and others won't lie to you. Quoting: Divinity
That is completely untrue. Take the current American President, or many, many other politicians, for example. Evil people have and will lie to you, no matter how honest you are.
Meantime, I know we create our own reality because we do it every second. The immediate vicinity is your creation. Quoting: Divinity
I agree that we often do create our own reality, and that with positive thoughts we can effect our environment. On the other hand, what i was trying to illustrate was that "you cannot 'create your own reality,' simply by positively thinking." Take the crack dealer example and analyze it. I am almost completely positive of the outcome, and that you are not confident enough in your abilities to 'create your own reality,' that you would even dare to try.
What i believe is more possible, and is common place for those who 'create their own reality,' is to "create your own illusion," where you delude yourself to the point where you begin to ignore reality and the pervading evil around you.
Again i hypothetically dare you to accept my challenge, and go meditate on the corner of the slummiest of inner city projects, where the crack dealers hang out.
