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 

constant. 

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. 




Maya.




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.




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 


knowledge.


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.




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?




Think.
