Peeples, very true what you said. That was a simple yet totally accurate answer. I think my question might need a bit of clarity. We can look around our immediate experience and see first hand how we "create" our own reality. However, that might not be enough for some to accept as "proof".
My goal in asking this question is to bring more specific information about how we directly effect our reality with our thoughts and words as well as you have mentioned, out actions and choices. My goal is also to help people understand that their thoughts and words truly do effect their reality and every aspect of it. And I also have a hidden agenda that I'm hoping someone will be inspired by the question to respond in a very particular way.
I can only appreciate the simplicity of your answer, and impressed with its accuracy as well. Thank you Peeples for your input.
