Take a look at this image, and decide what it is you see. Do you see three little “Pac-Man” circles artfully arranged, or do you see an invisible triangle? Are you among the many who define your reality by what you see, or by what you think you see?
We can become very well defined, all by what we choose to make a part of us. We can be very fact-based people who are not afraid to look into the nooks and crannies that comprise our existence. Perhaps you are the kind who must know everybody, go places, or spread yourself thin by trying to be everywhere at once.
Alternatively, we can choose to ignore a lot of what we see right in front of us and seek out the more arcane or imagined truths that are out there. Does that make them any less real if they are the subject of focus? Instead of looking outward into the “real world”, the insights you carry are better obtained from looking inward.
Who determines what is real? Whose perception is the more valid, and by what definition? To seek measurement of a particular piece of matter is one thing, certainly. To hold a rock in our hand, measure it, weigh it, determine its composition right down to its atomic structure is certainly work that brings a great amount of confirmatory knowledge to the seeker, or to others who learn of their work.
On the other hand, those who seek with an inward look are likely to discover things that are not as readily defined, or measured, or comprised of just a few particular aspects. It is in this way that imagination may take us places, or that possibilities are explored. How can we possibly measure the infinite? Does that lack of measurement make it any less understandable or real?
When all, or the majority of all, are forced to see a particular view of reality, what does that do to the rest of us? What is their reality, when they exist in a world of “what others think?” Is the triangle in the above photo “not there” for a reason? What might those reasons be? --Again, do we look to the scientific definition (because of the way our eyes and brain process what is there), or do we accept the possibility that maybe it just hasn’t made its appearance yet?
Consider the many encounters we have in any given day. What is your reality?
