Who Decides What is Reality?

by Aly Hazlewood on June 25, 2017


Of course I know that I am a stone in the wall of a giant echo chamber that is manipulated heavily by social media wizardry… and I know that I live in a tropical bubble, where truth seekers, rabble rousers and conscientious objectors come to find kin to live among…I know that the open heartedness and easy connection I find here are not the average state of play ‘out there’. Yes, I’m acutely aware.

So what to do? Leave? So that, as a friend recently suggested, I get my head back to ’reality’? Who would that benefit? And who decides what is reality?

This life I live could be our collective reality. It’s not perfect, not by a long way, but nothing is. What it is though, is magic made possible by a collective commitment to being vulnerable, and a hunger for truth. On the other hand, what it is not, is a repetition of the same thing, day in and day out for 75 years, under the guise of a ‘life’.

If it’s all the same to you, I’ll keep my head in the stars thanks.
