We do not really experience the truth. Everything we encounter in this life….things, people, places, events, are all experienced through our own, personal filter; these are only distorted reflections of what is really going on. We are each living in our very own personal dream…..and no two people will experience anything the same way.
If I cannot experience your dream, and you cannot experience mine, how can I tell you that I am “right” and you are “wrong”? Until we awaken from the dream, all “truth” is subjective.
This planet is inhabited by billions of dreamers, each starring in their very own, personal dream. Conflict will continue until we understand this, and until we stop trying in vain to have others see things our way. Trying to change others is an impossibility and a terrible waste of time and energy, I feel.
What would happen if we each focused on cleansing and mastering our own perceptions instead?
