OK so we DO create our own reality, but we also do muddle it as well. This is the reason placebos work. This is the reason hypnosis works. Nietzsche calls this Will To Power, bending reality to ones own will. Popular self help just credits the subconscious mind. With affirmations, self talk, hypnosis, and flat our belief, we create our reality. Scientists call this physics. So if within us is the power to manifest our destiny through our own beliefs then why are so many of us living in misery? See we can fool all of the people some of the time and we can fool some of the people all of the time, but we can fool ourselves most of the time. And, in fooling ourselves are subconscious never takes a joke. We muddle our reality and everything is cloudy.
So right now reality is cloudy, but in a way the cloudiness is clearing up a little bit. Like knowing you create everything frees you up to know that only you can mess things up and only you can make things right. I figured this out years ago when my therapists told me so but I never really understood it completely until I studied Nietzsche. It is easier to be muddled and crazy and confused when you know that it is all fixable in your head. All you have to do is believe that you are ok. The thing is, everything is ok.
See I figure since I study people and how they work so much I am one of the rare people that can't fool my own self very often. I also think I am not easily fooled. I can read people pretty well and I can also read my own bullshit pretty well. Right now my mind is clear. Right now I am not writing clear. Maybe my mind has to be cloudy for me to write clear. All I know now, is that my reality is unique to me and that is ok and that life is just a series of changing realities based on beliefs. What do I believe? I have no idea.
