Reality is what one makes of it. Truth be told, reality is only what one makes of it. In other words, one’s reaction and relation to anyone or anything is one’s reality to that person, place, or thing. The simplicity of this fact – that reality is truly in one’s mind – means that one can transform one’s mind when that would be beneficial. It also means that one can smile and breathe and experience a moment, a person, a feeling, an insight, the sky, and the ground as they are without additional thought, comment, desire, or aversion. Just experience.
Meditation can open the door to the mind. It’s the canvas of our reality. Paint it as you will, but realize that you are the painter.
