How is it possible that we create our own reality?
I have listened to parts of your interviews in the past, and I have noticed a popular theme that you and others advocate in that we "create our own reality, or experience." Is this the case, or is it just something people want to believe?
When we are conceived, or even in the first few years of our lifespan before the mind develops and takes over, do we create our own reality? Do cells not die and reproduce on their own, does the heart not pump blood on its own, does the digestive system require any intervention from us? Are we not the pure awareness that receives reality as it is, and also the mind's distortion of reality?
How is it possible that we "create" our own reality, or experience? If this is the case, then it follows that the mind is all-powerful. If this is not the case, then it follows that what the mind creates just distorts reality, blocking out "that which is."
Just a question I wanted to ask you, because this seems to be a popular assertion based on my explorations of current and successful authors and teachers on the web, and the entries currently on our site (www.truthcontest.com) say the exact opposite, that reality is "that which is," not our mind's creation.
