The world (to me) is big and it has many dimensions. Everyone has it’s place – aka truth in it- what fits them most. Your perception of the world is YOUR truth, so the phrase is very correct: you see the world the way you are able to due to your emotional/mental abilities. And, let’s not forget about ones environment, culture and spirituality/religion. There is a Russian band, and they have a song about how a man walks in the city at night and looks into lighted windows of other people. He is wondering about what it is that other people experience, what is their life looks like, their worries, their happiness e.t.c…
“I love to wander alone and look into other people’s windows”
The world is your mirror and your mind is a magnet. What you perceive in this world is largely a reflection of your own attitudes and beliefs. Life will give you what you attract with your thoughts think, act and talk negatively and your world will be negative. Think and act and talk with enthusiasm and you will attract positive results.
What you are, so is your world. Everything in the universe is resolved into your own inward experience. It does not matter what is outside your experience, for it is all a reflection of your own state of consciousness.
