Open your mind for a second and think

What is....reality? 

Is anything around us real? Are we real? Is anything  

that we see around us real? What is "real"?

We are not our bodies.

The truth has to be something eternal right? Something 

that doesn't change. So is anything in this material world 

true? The senses we use to percieve the world.. What 

are we really percieving? 

If I pinched you, would you feel the pain or does your 

body feel it? 

Take water for example. In the summer, we like the 

contact of water for it is cold but we shun away the 

same cold water in winter.

It all depends on how we percieve it. This world, our 

reality, physical and emotional feelings. They are all like 

the seasons that change. They come and go. Nothing is 


Change is constant.

So if everything changes, is any of it really real? The 

real truth is something that never changes. We are not 

our bodies. We are eternal beings. We can never really 

be born nor can we be destroyed. We are basically like 

energy. Spirit soul. 

That, is the truth. Not these material bodies, not the 

material world around us. All of this is an illusion. 


Even the knowledge we spend our entire lives acquiring, is 

lost when we die. Whatdo we actually learn? All 

knowledge of the world we see, the universe we live in. 

Is anything really authentic? It was all studied and 

taught by other people. We merely learn what the 

thinkers of the past have left us with. Even the basic 

laws of science or the base of religion or anything we 

learn, what is real? 

Everything we know, is what we know through our senses 

and perception. There are so many things which we 

cannot percieve with our given senses. 

Take radio waves for example. We cannot send or 

recieve them. We use devices to do that. But just 

because we can't sense them, it doesn't mean they 

don't exist. 

Who knows what more we live amongst. There could be a 

whole different world existing among our own, let alone 

alien planets! For all you know, you could be a mere 

breeze in the wind to another being's perception. Every 

drop of rain could be the touch of an otherwise non 

percievable entity. You can never really tell. 


Dare to not only think outside the box, but to step out 

of it. Dare to challenge the reality you have become 

comfortable sitting in. Step out of your comfort zone for 

one moment and dare to look at the infinite possibilities! 

Dare to think! Dare to dream! Dare to question all 


Are we really that arrogant to never accept the fact 

that we could be wrong? I mean 500 years or so ago, 

people knew the world was flat. Everything we know could 

be a lie. Every theory, every fact, every piece of 

academic breakthrough is mere speculation backed by 

apparent proof. But what is proof in a world that is 

constantly changing? Nothing. 

Do we even really exist? Am I actually typing this or are 

you really reading this? You'll never know. 


fear of the truth grips us all. Only the strongest can 

dare to face and accept the truth for what it is. 

Have we become so afraid of finding out the truth that 

we have settled down and become comfortable with a lie 

we've made up after giving up on the quest for the 

truth? A lie that grows every living moment?
