This is a question I’m asking honestly. We can go on and on about who we are, what we are, but who among us cares to delve into these subjects? I know I certainly do. But who among us really wants to know? Who wants the truth? From an objective lens, we are the rapists of the Earth, destroying our planet ever more rapidly, just to extend our power and control over the environment in which we live. From a subjective lens, we are whatever we think we are, or believe we are. The subjective lens is a more empowering view of humans, but is that really what we need as a species? Because it seems like, from an objective lens, that all we’ve done with this expanded power is cause more death, destruction, and control. Sure, life is great for a select few in this world, but it is at the expense of others, humans and nonhumans. From what I have seen, most of the world lives in poverty, which is not right, but that’s how it is. We are not living with the great spirit within us as a whole. But that can’t stop you from doing so.
We can tap into another reality at any time we want to. We just have to know how. We have to have the consciousness for it. But what is the true nature of reality? What is the real truth? Which lens is most accurate? The question is unanswerable, because for one there are too many lenses to look through. Another problem is that different lens are more accurate for different people. It’s hard to really know which lens is the most accurate, but we can explore different lenses to see which one works better than the one we are using. Or we can use the multi-lens approach, tailoring each situation to the best lens for the job. But I’m sure this takes years of practice to calibrate which lens is best for each individual situation. I believe that subjective reality is one of the primary steps to getting your reality in better order, simply because it allows for what you believe to be true.
It is a creative belief system, with potentially unlimited possibilities, but the major limit being our own minds. We can explore our inner space indefinitely, and this is a way to truly flourish, independent of the objective universe, although the objective universe is contained within the subjective framework. But the objective universe is only there because we believe in it to be so. But our belief is truly rooted there as of now because that is where our consciousness is wrapped up. Sure, it has led to unbelievable understanding and advances in technology, so it is useful in the framework in which it works, so it cannot be completely dumped. But relying solely on the objective lens creates fear and uncertainty. It creates a feeling of lack of control. But when the subjective lens is placed before the objective one, it can make the objective world a creation of consciousness, and therefore more flexible and less pronounced. The subjective lens accounts for much more than just the objective world. It brings that all experiences are possible and that if we wish to create them, we can by intending it to be created.
It reminds me of the mantra, “If you believe it, it is so.” Very true. But not always. You’ve seen cult suicides, and other indoctrinated people who believed what they believed only because their consciousness was controlled. You can believe whatever you want to believe, but it has to actually work for you. It has to encourage growth, not stagnation. It has to empower you, not disempower you. It has to open your mind, not close it. A closed mind is one of rigidity and clinginess. People cling to their beliefs, even in the most contradictory experiences. When you see something that contradicts your beliefs, you need to open your mind and find something that will explain it, otherwise you are perceiving reality inaccurately. And that would be a damn shame because it would hinder your ability to function in the real world. The more removed from reality your beliefs are, the worse off you are.
A few years ago, I tried out the subjective lens, and intended money to come into my life. I had absolute strangers giving me $5 where I worked. At the time, I was a bagger at a grocery store and when I went outside to retrieve the shopping carts, I was finding money everywhere. I was getting large tips from people I helped out, and this one incident threw me over the edge. A man called for my attention when i was in the parking lot and said, “Come over here for a moment.” So I did. “I just wanted to thank you for what you did yesterday. You helped my mother bring her groceries to her car and I just wanted you to have this.” He gave me a $10 bill. I had never even imagined something like this would happen unless it had to do with my intention for it to happen. I thought to myself, “Wow! This is really true! It made my life better in every way possible!” Of course, we forget and go back to old habits, so I did, and lost parts of that belief system.
I’m going from personal experience when I say that intention-manifestation does work, but it only works to the extent you believe in it. If you have doubts, those doubts will appear in your manifestations. If you don’t actually believe you can manifest $50,000 dollars just by intending it, you won’t. If you think these things are impossible, stop reading now. Your beliefs will stop you from experiencing anything beyond your realm of possibility. In a subjective framework, anything is possible. Your only limitation is if you don’t truly believe this. I’m not quite there yet, but using reference experiences and other people’s supposed experiences, I figure that it can only enhance reality, not degrade it, so it is empowering by its very nature, to say that you (consciousness) are the very creator of this reality and are everything you experience, not just your physical body. It is the dream scenario in my previous post. You are all that exists, all that you are aware of, all your thoughts and the thoughts that you perceive to the in the global consciousness. It’s all you. Other people are you. The planet is you. The universe is you. Everyone and everything is connected. There is no you and I. It is all I. Or we. We are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. Life is nothing but a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves. Einstein proved that, so why haven’t we taken it seriously yet? Because we (I) am not ready yet. But I’m getting there.
And when we believe that we are all one, all part of the same whole, in this together, we start to have compassion. Compassion for all that is. We realize that to hurt another is to hurt oneself. To hate someone is truly to hate a part of yourself. Non-duality. A belief in this can create quite an interesting life I bet. It is a very empowering way to view reality and no matter what happens, you know you are safe, even beyond the death of your physical avatar. If you die in a dream, you don’t die for real. Your physical body is but a manifestation of consciousness and is just another one of your creations.
I’ll expand on this later when I have more time. I just manifested a lunch with my grandparents. But I hope I have convinced you that you should care about who we are and that we should get to the roots of reality to perceive it accurately. Remember, an accurate belief enhances your life and the lives of those around you, while an inaccurate belief causes problems, especially if it closes your mind to other schools of thought. This is why subjective reality is the most empowering belief I’ve found so far. It encompasses everything and anything, as long as you are open to it. A jack of all trades. It is how we all live our lives, but with many belief systems tacked onto it, some that even negate the subjective paradigm. A God making himself powerless. Anyway, happy existence to you!
