So what is ‘reality’ saying to you today?
To me reality is saying ‘spring is finally here and new life is popping up everywhere.’
But if I were in deep meditation, that ‘reality’ might appear quite differently.
This is one of the hardest concepts to consider: that what you perceive to be REALITY is simply that—it’s a PERCEPTION.
And although it may be hard to imagine that it is possible to ‘perceive’ in a completely different way, the act of doing so makes ‘reality’ a matter of your focus on frequency (sound and light waves) reception.
We are naturally beings with built-in multi-sense receivers that inform and awaken us to the various stimuli in our environment; BUT (and it’s a large gluteus maximus at that)—what we are often oblivious to is that we choose our ‘focal points’ around us—we choose what we recognize and acknowledge as ‘the composition of our world’; and we tend to choose that ‘reception input’ unconsciously, like when you’re driving the car after someone else has, you automatically tune that radio dial back to your favorite station because you like what it plays—because it feels comfortable to you.
So when you seriously practice meditation—when you go deeply into silence and serenity—when you go beyond the bells and whistles of this world’s many distractions and attention hijackings, then a new world (dimension) opens up to you for further exploration.
And as long as you are in deep meditation and resonating with exploring that ‘new world’, then your ‘reality’ may seem quite different. In fact it may be SO different that you begin to wonder WHICH reality is the one that you actually occupy, and which is the one that deludes you into believing that you live there?
“Meditation is not evasion. It is a serene encounter with reality.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
So then which reality is REAL; and is the whole point being that ‘REALITY is the entire frequency range of the tuning dial’ that you can adjust at will?
And even more importantly, …WHY IS THAT?
