A Self Help Tutorials Question on
the Nature of Physical Matter
A Self help Tutorials Question
Are you saying that the physical world we live in does not really exist? I’m beginning to see the logic in your argument, but I’m finding it very hard to accept what you say as truth. Surely, in all the years that man has existed on the earth, scientists and other people would have discovered that the nature of physical matter is illusion and that info would be general knowledge by now?
Do you mean to say that apparently, even though scientists do not see what you are saying, that you have worked it out on your own? I’d like to believe you, but as far as I’m concerned I have to deal with the reality that’s right in front of my eyes and that’s a reality of physical matter.
Having said that, I do enjoy reading your views on the nature of reality; I simply have to stick with my beliefs and what I see in my daily life, until such a time that I see something different.
Thank you for your time.
Thanks for asking these question George.
First of all, you assume that scientists have some kind of monopoly on understanding reality, whereas, generally, in truth, scientists belong to what could be referred to as a 'belief club.'
However, if you dig for yourself, you’ll discover that many scientists and others, throughout history, have discovered certain Universal truths that seem to contrast or contradict scientific theories or beliefs; including the idea that physical matter doesn’t have an objective reality of its own; or at least there’s no scientific evidence that matter exists independently of a conscious observer.
In matters of the nature of existence, I would never ask anyone to believe me at face value. I spent approximately 20 years reading and researching other people’s views on the nature of existence, thus I did not arrive at my understanding without input from many others. However, for whatever reasons, I always approached other people’s views with an open mind and by asking this question: why would they say those things unless they believed them to be true?
By believing that you have to stick with your beliefs until such a time that you see something different, you’re creating a self-perpetuating 'belief loop.' Once you realize that there is no reality other than any reality that you’ve defined, imagined and believed in; then you realize that changing your beliefs results in changing the reality that you’ll experience.
In this transformational age, more and more people are starting to realize that the nature of one’s personal reality is defined by one’s personal beliefs. All versions of reality are available to you. Which version do you now prefer to experience? Get clear about and define that, imagine that, believe in that and then, over time, that newly preferred reality will be your truth!
Never take anybody’s word or blindly believe in anything. Relax your mind and use discernment to examine, observe and feel how it feels to you. And then make that truth your own.
