If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing.

“If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing.”
 Anatole France

Thoughts, beliefs and stories… about who we are and what life is… are simply that… thoughts, beliefs and stories. And most of them are not true. They are rather illusions that we believe to be true. Then when we unconsciously believe them to be true… we project them onto our experience of reality… and experience a virtual rather than true reality.

What is Reality?

Written by Sydney Miller

what is reality img 1

The Oxford Dictionary defines reality as: The world or the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them. 2

Wikipedia takes it a step further, saying that: “common colloquial usage would have reality mean ‘perceptions, beliefs, and attitudes toward reality,’ as in ‘My reality is not your reality.’” 3

The Pathless Path

Written by Master Charles Cannon, Will Wilkinson

Technology of Now

“Imagine being able to change your age, gender, weight, height, and even your species at the snap of a finger at a cocktail party or in a business meeting. In a virtual world … it’s just as easy to render the avatar as the Jolly Green Giant as it is to replicate the spitting image of the user, and anywhere in between. So one reason social virtual worlds are becoming so popular is because of this alluring but potentially dangerous idea of appearing however you want, whenever you want.”

Reality 3.0 ... Harnessing Technology for the Evolution of Consciousness

Written by Sydney Miller

reality 3.0 img 1

Everyone is a student of “reality”. We all learn about reality every minute of our day, with our minds and sensory perceptions and, through our experience of reality, we grow or evolve. We are genetically designed to do so for our survival, which is our primal concern. Yet, our realities differ drastically from one person to the next, and there is much excellent research which explains how that happens.

When we know how to be content, we never want for anything.

Written by Master Charles Cannon

contemplation 2 9 2015 small

“When we know how to be content, we never want for anything.” Lao Tzu

It could be said that true contentment has nothing to do with acquisition. It is not dependent on that which is objective to us. Rather… from a holistic perspective… contentment is our very nature and the nature of all and everything. Contentment is the innate delight of the one consciousness that is all.

Each of us has an image of what we think we should be...

Written by Master Charles Cannon

“Each of us has an image of what we think we are or what we should be and that image prevents us from seeing ourselves as we actually are.” ~Krishnamurti

It has been aptly said that there is what is… and then there are the stories we tell about it.  What is… is life… in all of its happenings.  In essence… life simply happens and we are witnesses of it.  An appropriate metaphor is the sun and the clouds.  The sun is an eternal witness of the clouds going by.  What is… simply is… as it is… within all of its happenings.

Bodies are cleansed by water; the mind is purified by truth.

Written by Master Charles Cannon

contemplation 3 16 2015 small

“Bodies are cleansed by water; the mind is purified by truth.”
 Manu

The mind is a thinking machine.  If we are not wakeful… it endlessly regurgitates its database.  Since the mind’s database is dominantly illusory… we remain mired in illusory stories and their resultant virtual reality.  In this way… we limit our innate bliss.

Sydney's Reality-Tech Blog: An Introduction

Written by Sydney Miller

syds blog an introduction2

Consciousness is the substratum of all and everything, and it evolves. For thousands of years, before science became a separate and competing meme to religion, the ancient wisdom traditions were the source of knowledge about the nature of reality. That knowledge came into question by the scientific revolution which dared to question the underlying assumptions, declaring them too subjective and not quantifiable, thus denying their validity. The battle of science vs. religion has subsequently been playing out for centuries.
