Whatever you say it is… is simply what you say it is.

Written by Master Charles Cannon

“Whatever you say it is… is simply what you say it is.”
          ~Alfred Korzybski

In the ancient philosophical systems it was said that the world is as you see it.  For each of us… it is as we see it… and we each see it slightly differently.  We assume that we have a shared experience of the same reality… when in truth no two versions of reality experience are the same.

This is because we flavor our reality experience with our data… our beliefs and stories of who we are and what life is.  Since we all have unique databases based on our life experience… we likewise all have a uniquely flavored experience of reality.

This ancient and time-honored philosophical principle is also now validated by quantum science.  Werner Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle states that the observer affects the observed.  Again, we all flavor our reality experience with our data and no two are the same.

The real question then is what would your reality experience be without your data flavoring it?  This is why one meditates.  With a still mind… our experience of reality is more pure and true.

This week observe how your data flavors your reality experience.  Also observe your reality experience in meditation when your mind is still.  In this way… you can validate this quotation for yourself and begin to see how you create your reality experience.
