What Do You Understand By Your Reality?

THIS IMAGE IS SO SCARY (at least to me )!!! I’ll let you why in a jiff. But by now, I guess you’ve looked at the image well enough and have seen a silhouette of a man and a woman having the best time of their lifes. That position is just awesome. Do you know that if a child looks at this same picture, all they will instantly see are dolphins? They will see alot of dolphins in this picture. Now you are going to look for the dolphins. If your mind is as naughty as mine, you’re going to have a hard time pointing them out. You might even be in denial and I dont blame you.

Here is why this image is scary.

It reminds me of my existence and reality here on Earth. I was born in Lagos, Nigeria and this country, state, local government area, community, environment, my home is my reality. This reality, which is mine, is completely different even from my neighbours in the next building. This is just a surface difference.

We all have our different reality. The racism, religion, LGBT, politics, entertainment, education and so on. Most of us have our reality designed by one or two sections, some more than three, four or five sections. The question is who designed the reality you are living?

Jesus said,”I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH and then, THE LIFE”. Jesus created a new reality for anyone and He claims that this reality He has created is ultimately the way. The way to what? Every human has a big hole in his/her heart and they try to fill this hole with materialistic things. Anyway, I digress.

What is your reality? Is your reality actually real? You are born into your reality. This is not your doing, you have no blame to yourself. But have you tried to understand what your reality is presenting to you? Have you ever probed? Or do you just accept your reality the way it is and you defend it so blindly, you make your true self so worried. Is your reality like this image? If I had said nothing about dolphins and you didn’t know, you will forever see two people having sex. Isn’t it scary to you? How do you defend a reality that was not yours to begin with? I know people do it, so I am asking, how? How?

I’ll give you two scenarios:

Do a bit of research and see the decline of morality and rational thinking from the year the TV was invented. This year has been even crazier.

Second scenerio: We live in a reality where 1% of the world’s population own the remaining 99%. This 1% whether you believe it or not creates your physical reality. The news you watch, the food you eat, the dresses you wear, the tv shows you watch, the schools that educates you, the candidates you vote for and so on. The most annoying is you see people arguing over a reality that was created for them. With the ingredient of the illusion of choice, they create a perfect physical reality.

This thing is real. Just like a (good) parent creates the reality their kids to grow up in, shielding them from the harsh reality of life, so is our own reality been created.

There is only one reality that is important. It has nothing to do with the things you do rather it’s in what you see, which makes perfect sense.

2 Corinthians 3:18 says, But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the LORD.

Do you see how everything is in chaos or do you see God in charge?

Be careful not to live a lie. Even though these created realities cannot be escaped while on earth, you must make sure you have THE TRUTH with you. THE TRUTH is the narrow road. Everything, absolutely everything will become meaningless once you die. The reason is because they are all fake, superficial to begin with. They were created to take as much of your time as possible so you don’t get to do the one thing that is needful.

Know what your reality is all about. It is your obligation. Your life is too important to just live carelessly. You would have known how important your life is if they were no man made realities blocking that truth. You have to closely. You have to take a second look and a third, a fourth, fifth and sixth look.

The perception of the art is the scary part. If I posted that image without any explaination, you would just see two lovers … and so is reality. If a simple fixed image can do that, how much do you think reality can do? Worst still, how would one stand and defend anything when one does not have the full picture?

I didn’t see that you explained the picture. And that’s just it, our perception is our reality. And that in and of itself doesn’t need to be defended against, it’s neutral.
