HJ: We do not see life as it is — we see life as we are. And yet most people assume we see the world objectively. And therein lies a great source of pain and suffering because we are projecting our thoughts and beliefs onto the world around us, believing that this is how the world is, when it is just us playing a game with ourselves. And so we constantly fool ourselves into believing what we already believe is true, is true. And we create our reality and then let it control us. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can shift your reality once you start seeing life as a reflection of your own heart and mind — when you understand that you read whatever meaning into situations you choose to believe, you can then use ‘reality’ as a tool for self-reflection and growth. This is one of the most powerful shifts you can make because it switches you from a victim into a powerful creator. It is how you shift your reality by shifting yourself.
