Our Say So

Teasing Out The Truth
I am indebted to Barbara Foerder who inspired this conversation.

I have a secret to tell. I'll let you in on it. It's this:
This entire time we have with each other on the planet, and everything
that happens for us and is possible for us during this time, is
whatever we say it is. We're convinced it "is" this way. We're
convinced it "is" that way. We're convinced that the way we believe it
"is", is the truth.
Consider this: we're profoundly mistaken. Consider the way it is, is
only whatever we say it is. I say "This is a great sweater for me.". So
it is. I say "This isn't a great sweater for me.". So it isn't. What we
say, is the final arbiter of our experience. That much may be obvious.
What may not be so obvious is what we say, may be the source
of our experience too.
That's my secret. And notice this: I'm not saying that what I just
said, is the truth for anyone else - unless they say it is.
