Our Reality is Simply a Matter of Agreement

The world as we know it has been taught to us since childhood.

 We have been trained to see the world through our enviroment, through parental guidance, social pressure, theory, science and from our governments. The world view is an idea of reality. Made up of ideas that weave through all of our lives, a collective unconsious that affects everyone of us.

Remember things are not always what they seem. Our attitudes and ideas about the world may not be completely accurate. Different groups live in different truths. Realites can be amazingly different; conflicts between religions, politics, and science can be as different as the next neighborhood over. Do not base your decisions on one viewpoint only, without looking at the question at hand from other ways. The need to conform may be interfering .

You may feel pressure to follow the rest of the herd, even if you don't agree with the reasoning. Your decisions need to be based on your own ethics and morals. Do not make a decision base out of fear, or just reward gain.

Taking the time to understand motives for the behavior are necessary for awareness. Tolerence is foundwhen other people's behaviors are explored. Life is a great deal of illusion, and perception that can change greatly under circumstances. Avoid rash decisions. Taking the time and decide what you want your reality to be.

Good thoughts to ponder. I love at the end when you point out not to make rash decisions and that perceptions can change. That is something that very few people get.
