We Each Live in Our Own Reality

Written by Gary Wonning

We create our own reality

This is a hard concept for many, most of us tend to think that each of us
live in the same reality and we all perceive events the same way.

Even though most of us realize many people may have a different opinion than
we do, and as a result see life from a different perspective, most
don’t realize how much other’s views vary from our own.

We all live in our own little world, influenced by many different factors
and circumstances. The environment in which we were raised as well as
the environment in which we are living now are two of the biggest
factors in determining how we see the world.


Our own perspective in how we see others around us also determines our
reality. We have a different relationship with everyone around us than
anyone else does. We have had different past life experiences with them
also,this all affects how we feel and react to them.

As a result, two people from similar backgrounds can view a particular
event and each come away with a different perspective of what just
occurred. Many times they will even see the physical reality
differently. Many times two people viewing an accident or a crime will
have two different versions.

This can also be affected by where the individual person’s attention and
thoughts are at the moment. If your mind is somewhere else at the time
and thinking of something totally different than what is happening
directly in front of you, your perception will be entirely different
than the individual next to you who has their total focus on it.

We all live in our own little world independent, but yet dependent on
those around us. Each and everyone of of us are here to learn and grow
from the experiences we have. Not only do these experiences shape our
reality, but they also mold the events that  chart our destiny, and
change our perception of it.

Each of us is on a different path, and only by realizing our own reality and
how it can differ from those around us can we fulfill our mission here
on earth and grow spiritually, thereby reaching our highest potential.

I have found over the years that there is no such thing as reality, it is only how we perceive it. Each of us may have a different view of it because of our different beliefs and experiences. Two individuals can be sitting side by side, looking at the same event and “see” two entirely different outcomes based on their individual perceptions
