Thought Creates Reality | How Your Mind Creates Reality
Imagine a world where thought creates reality and your mind creates reality by projecting its contents onto the canvas of your life. It sounds like an imaginative story, however, this is more than just a story.
Life can certainly be a roller coaster of stress and anxiety sometimes, and with so many responsibilities and time restraints, your hectic schedule can begin to take its toll on many areas of your life.
The good news is, there are several ways you can change your life to help you surf the wave of chaos with relative ease.

You have the power to change your experience of life by changing how you choose to think. How you interact with your environment and your experience of reality are determined by what thoughts you choose to express.
Your thoughts affect how you feel, they change your experience of life, and they can limit your progress in life, and spiritually, if you don’t use the energy of your thoughts positively.
Strive to master the following seven brain hacks and you will learn not only how to master yourself, but how to master surfing the flow of energy guiding you through life.
Brain Hack Number 1 – Change Your Mind to Alter Your Reality!
Your life, and how you experience it, is a product of your mind. What you perceive, think, and believe, shape how you view yourself, others, and life in general.
When you look at something you don’t see it as it truly is. You see it as you are. Your ideas, concepts, thoughts, and preconceptions all influence how you interpret everything in your environment.
So what you see before you may not be the true reality. It may be your individualized version of it.
This is something that can be used positively, however. If your experience of reality is a reflection of your mind, it stands to reason that you can change your mind and alter your perception of reality.
And of course, you can do exactly that.
The Story of the Blind Man and the Elephant Illustrates How Thought Creates Reality
The story of the Elephant and the Blind Men is a perfect example of how your thoughts, perceptions, and preconceptions all influence how you experience what’s around you.
Six blind men placed their hands upon an elephant, not knowing what an elephant was because they were blind and had never seen one before.
One man had his hands on the foot. The other on the tail. One of the tusk. One had his hands on the trunk.
The next blind man had his hands on the elephant’s ears, and the other blind man had his hands on the elephant’s side.
Every man argued that they knew what an elephant looked like.
The blind man who had his hands on the elephant’s foot thought an elephant looked like a tree trunk.
The blind man who had his hands on the elephants tail thought an elephant looked like a piece of rope.
The blind man who had his hands on the elephant’s tusk thought an elephant looked like a pipe.
The blind man who had his hands on the elephant’s trunk thought an elephant looked like a branch.
The blind man who had his hands on the elephant’s ear thought an elephant looked like a fan.
And the blind man who has his hands on the elephant’s side thought an elephant looked like a wall.
Every one of the blind men thought they knew what an elephant looked like and all the men were shouting at each other arguing that they were right and everyone else was wrong.
Until one man, who was standing nearby watching these blind men argue, shouted to them, “You’re all touching different parts of the same animal.”
The deeper message of this story is that we cannot always see the full picture from one limited perspective. What we each experience, from one limited perspective, may not allow us to perceive the whole truth.
It may only allow us to perceive a part of the truth.
And that part of the truth we do experience is not always an accurate perception of the complete truth but is often only a reflection of our thoughts, ideas, concepts, and preconceptions.
When you look at something you don’t see it as it truly is. You see it as you are.
The Zen Master and His Student Story Illustrates How Your Mind Creates Reality
There’s an old Zen story which involves a conversation between a student and his master that reflects this beautifully.
The final message of that story, that the master shared with his student, was to “empty your cup of preconception.”
As long as your head is full of your ideas, concepts, beliefs, perceptions, and preconceptions, you cannot be taught anything.
If your mental cup is already full there is no room to learn anything else.
If you want to acquire spiritual knowledge you have to empty your mental cup of all your ideas, concepts, beliefs, perceptions, and preconceptions and, with that empty mental cup, you will be filled with knowledge and awareness.
The Deeper Message in Both these Ancient Stories
However, there’s an even deeper message the Blind Men and the Elephant story and the story of the Zen master and his student.
And that deeper message is the same in both these ancient stories.
When you are mentally empty, and your brain is not over-active, and your mind is calm, empty, and still, that state of still mental observation allows you to access deeper knowledge and awareness.
When brain activity is reduced and the mind is still and unmodified, the intelligence and knowledge of the spiritual heart can shine through into your awareness.
Sometimes you have to take a step back and view all perspectives before you can fully realize the truth that’s in front of you. And sometimes you need to disregard all perspectives and be mentally empty, and still, so you can access the truth that’s within you.
Because in that mental stillness not only will you find peace, balance, and harmony, but you will also access a knowledge, intelligence, and awareness that is far greater than your physical self.
So be careful of what you think and perceive in the world. Thought creates reality.
Because what you perceive to be truth is not necessarily the whole truth. It may only be one limited perspective of a greater truth.
If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
However sometimes it’s best not to change your perception of anything, sometimes, it’s best to meditate in quiet mental stillness, and just observe.
