Are we all just playing a part?

multiple peopleA close loved one died recently and I was again struck how different family members and friends remember the same person. It seems that not only do we change and grow (or shrink) with age, but that different people either see, or bring out, different sides of the same person.

I then took this to a higher level and realised that the loved one was probably actually playing a part in this incarnation. That he was probably never the person I thought he was. He was as he was because I needed him to be that way for my own development. Is this actually true of us all? We may be basically playing the interactive video game of life  after all.

Aspects of reality

In some sense we are all actors in each others lives. It may be more of a cosmic plan than we are aware of.


Differing aspects of us

multiple peopleA friend of ours has recently acquired a lovely new partner. He was always very sound and good hearted, but as it has been remarked upon in the wider friendship circle, he seems to have become much nicer open and generally more friendly. Almost a new man. His late wife was a wonderful woman, but X has brought out a softer, nicer side to his personality.

This made me think how many differing aspects that we all have to our personalities. Several different people are probably inside us. The personalities that we develop, in our interactive reality, depend more than we think on who we interact with and our circumstance in life.On which aspects are brought out. Not only that but friends at the opposite end of the spectrum may see almost completely different people.

Anyway, just another example of the absolute fluidity of our reality in practice. We cannot even really be sure of who, as people, we or our friends really are.

What do you think?


Different perceptions or different realities?

Dreams are created one choice at a time

Reality is  created one choice at a a time

As ever, the true nature of our reality is something that is a constant fascination to me. I am always on the look out for clues or insights. For instance, the other day I started to watch an American TV programme that was a story shown from the two main characters points of view. Key scenes were remembered differently by the protagonists. This got me thinking on a deep level about the individual nature of reality. The point is, is it generated differently or just perceived differently? Or probably both. It is very hard to tell.

Whilst on a day to day basis we can ask, how often to we misunderstand people or even fall out with them because we have perceived key scenes in our own lives differently? From a reality point of view the question is even more profound. I often feel that we are in some sort of gigantic interactive video game. Are we playing exactly the same game? Or do we just think we are and reality is in fact very individual?  We will only know the answers when we really understand the big picture of our existence. What do you think


Knowing when to let go.

Part of our reality is our experience of living on our Earth. We are here to live different lives and experience different scenarios within these lives. We often make contracts with people before incarnation and agree to play a teaching part in each others lives. These may be short or long or just fleeting. Sometimes we just need to make new contacts. New souls that may help each others journey in past and future lives. Sometimes to allow these people in we have to let others go. We are, as humans limited in our time and capacities. So , it is relevant both to life style and soul development. If you have come across the post in my lifestyle mode, re read with your soul hat on!


The reality of what it means to be human.

I love Horizon the occasional BBC programme, it is often invaluable when looking at aspects of reality. Just last month they did a particularly interesting programme called, What makes us human? It was hosted by Prof Alice Roberts who was both pregnant herself and an anatomist.

It started with assertion that we share 99% of our DNA with Apes, but we look and act totally differently. It then asked -what it is that makes us human?
