Observing Reality

I have long been fascinated with the concept of reality. I recall years ago reading some AMORC materials that defined reality as distinct from actuality. Actuality is what a thing actually is whereas reality is your perception of a thing. So in fact, reality is YOUR reality and not necessarily that of another person. That’s interesting but it really simply shifts the question to what is actuality then?

Quantum physicists now theorize and have demonstrated with experiments that reality is determined by the observer – at least to some degree. Others might say simply that reality doesn’t exist at all until it is observed – much like the question does a falling tree in the middle of a forest make a sound if there is no one there to hear it? No – it does not make a sound.

Of course, there are all kinds of implications to these simplest of statements. If I observe my reality then do I not create it? If so, does cosmic ordering really work? The answer is most likely yes and no. The problem is that most people view cosmic ordering systems as yet another get rich quick scheme promoted by mainly American new agers and get rich quickers….. Want to change your reality????? Change yourself. Change the way you see things, think about things. Change your internals. Because the act of observing doesn’t take place ‘out there’ but inside of you.
