What is your perception of life? What is your reality?

As an individual, there is an atmosphere you carry with you, and I don’t just mean a physical atmosphere, this is an atmosphere that proceeds from who you are, it is a force that surrounds you that is determined by your thoughts, your perception and the inward you, some people are unaware of this, but others have discovered this truth, that every individual carries with him or her an environment.

The world smiles at the person, who smiles, the world frowns at the person who frowns, remember that, the world reflects who you are, and echoes what you say.

I have a friend who always says ‘I carry my environment with me, I carry my world with me, therefore, I have everything I need right here and right now’, this is a fascinating statement, where you are right now is where your life is, that is your state of being, you only change geographical locations.

John O’Donohue wrote that No one else has access to the world you carry around within yourself; you are its custodian and entrance. No one else can see the world the way you see it. No one else can feel your life the way you feel it. Thus it is impossible to ever compare two people because each stands on such different ground. When you compare yourself to others, you are inviting envy into your consciousness; it can be a dangerous and destructive guest.

Henry David Thoreau wrote, it’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see

So you see that you have the power to recreate your world and make it what you want it to be, to prepare and frame it for yourself, to see things the way you want to and respond the way you want to.

So what is your reality?

Many people do not take the time to ask such questions, they just move on in life, taking in other people’s perception, creating their own reality with other people’s words and opinions, don’t allow anyone else shape your reality, only your beliefs and perception matter, YOU CREATE YOUR REALITY!

So build yourself up with great materials, invest in yourself, don’t build your life with the materials other people give you, do not base your reality on other people’s information, beliefs, convictions, opinions and perception, you have one life to live, decide to make it great.
