“Life is like a library owned by the author. In it are a few books which he wrote himself, but most of them were written for him.” – Harry Emerson Fosdick
I believe that there is a dualism of subjective and objective realities. With few books, it means that there are only a few books which we tell about ourselves. But, there is a whole host of stories that are out there about you by other living souls.
Lately, I’ve been battling back and forth between subjective and objective realities. I believe that everyone was put on Earth for a purpose. Everyone has their own unique talents and gifts that they use. But seldom do people reach their highest potential (higher self or higher being).
The few books written by you represent subjective reality. And the many books written by other people about you is part of the objective reality. At least, that is the way I perceive it to be.
Somehow, you have to find a balance between the subjective and objective realities. You have to learn how to accept your circumstances and how to enjoy it better.
You may want to experiment with both realities. Some people prefer to work at it alone (subjective reality), and others perceive their lives as being controlled by other beings.
I like to have control over my life most times, which is why I prefer subjective reality. But, I still realize that there are physical limitations that do not allow us to live our lives invincibly. One example of that is your body’s strength and endurance. If you push yourself too hard, you may crash. Vice versa, if you do not take care of your body, you will suffer the consequences.
Some people like to think of the objective world as being spiritual. Personally, I believe that there are things outside of our world that are miracles. Do you ever wonder about the other planets in outer space? People often learn from church that Earth is created by God. But what about the stars and other moons and galaxies out there? Where did they all come from?
My guess is that there is a higher being who created all of these amazing objects. And, humankind is also amazing because they come up with all sorts of cool technologies and gadgets that are fun to use. We are out own creators. We can create our own realities, but it takes time due to physical boundaries and limitations.
Aside from this dualism, I believe that there are different laws that guide us. The most basic ones include gravitational pull and Law of Attraction. These physical boundaries and limitations are part of the objective reality.
There are times when you can influence objective reality. For example, you cannot fully control other people’s minds or emotions. However, you can influence them by just staying grounded and being yourself. You can teach others your way of living just by engaging in activities that you enjoy. Personally, I enjoy physical activity (such as dancing, Zumba, yoga, or kickboxing), and I find that my friends and family are more likely to go to the gym when I do this.
