It occurs to me 
there are as many realities 
as there are people.

"Reality" is based on 
the perception of the individual 
Is there such a thing as reality?


  1. Reminds me of the koan "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear, does it make a sound?"

  2. Just read this in "Report to Greco" by Niko Kazantzakis:

    "We are to blame if reality does not take the form we desire. Whatever we have not desired with sufficient strength, that we call nonexistent. Desire it, imbrue it with your blood, your sweat, your tears, and it will take on a body. Reality is nothing else than the chimera subjected to our desire and our suffering."
