perception of reality


"We do not see things as they are.  We see them as we are."

-The Talmud

"To a large degree "reality" is whatever the people who are around at the time agree to."

-Milton H. Miller

How much does your attitude determine your reality? How much does your choice of companions influence your reality? Are you hanging out with people who are always negative, down, pessimistic? Then your reality will reflect that dark cloud. Two people can witness the exact same incident and come away with completely different explanations of the event. It is their own perception that creates for them the reality of that moment. So perhaps I should choose to see things differently and alter my reality?
