What Is Real?
What Determines Your Reality?
Our perception of the world is completely subjective; it says nothing about what happens outside us. We grasp our own reactions to something supposedly unfolding outside us, but does anything really happen out there?
The mystic says reality is your fears, your desires, your idea that you have to get to somewhere, the idea that you lack something, is, in this view, an illusion. You are not a separate ego in a bag of skin, but rather are this oneness.
The mystics also say your mind is in the way of your experience of who you really are. They say your mind is creating an alternate reality, that is, in a sense, like dust covering a mirror and keeping you from seeing who you really are.
At the moment of creation, this one energy of all and everything polarized itself into a seeming duality: good and evil, up and down, male and female, here and there, black and white, off and on, yin and yang, and so on. And there is a tension between the two sides of each of these poles, and the mystics say that this tension between polar opposites is what causes the universe to manifest in the first place.
The reason why this duality, these opposites, only seem to exist is that each side of the duality depends on the other side for it's existence. Here makes no sense without the other. Not me makes no sense without me.
Good makes no sense without evil. Each of these exist only in relation to the other. They are not, as we usually think of them, mutually exclusive opposites, but rather aspects of the same thing, the same process.
Each of these seemingly opposite poles are, really, totally dependent on each other. They are one thing, not two. In being opposite, they are also inextricably tied to each other, and cannot exist independently.
