I found this video and was looking for some feedback from the PS community about it:
Is this basically an extention of the 'law of attraction'..... calling them 'Reality Architects'?
I agree entirely with the comment by Lance Blumenthal immediately below the video, that he gave on Sept 30, 2011.
I've seen opinions here on the discussion boards that seem indignant about the idea of marketing truth ("The Secret", et al.). I find that people who try to sell "Truth" for a profit are, from my perspective, welcome to do so to their hearts' content, and more power to them! When an individual is ready to expand her/his awareness, the right answers appear at the right time. I have absolute faith in this. And, whether the information being peddled is correct or not is irrelevant.
Well said Gil.
The last part I have a problem with entirely. To me it seems the information should be correct or projected to support the theme of any story. To use it politically or peddle it as truth are really asking for the spotlight in ways that have cost the lives of people inside government.
True. It would be nice if everyone lived for the sake of everyone else, but then this would be Heaven (however you perceive it), and we'd have no incentive to grow, since all would be perfect. However, the only reason that Existence persists is that the irritations and conflicts in perceived differences promote the drive to overcome or improve. It is that very drive that maintains our ascension over the inevitable entropy that eventually subsumes everything.
From a moral perspective, though, you're right, and I appreciate the value of it.
I've held the idea that the universe is like some big video game since I was about 15... I find it really interesting when others find the same idea I did... I remember saying it to a friend in high school, and getting called crazy lol
For quite a while, I have been more intrigued by those that know nothing of the 'law of attraction' or 'quantum physics' and yet are capable of creating exactly the life they choose. I've met children who can manifest their hearts desire immediately without any idea of these concepts.
I have also observed folks who have read every book and gone to every workshop but still can't figure out how to manifest dinner on the table.
I have concluded that the more you go at life instinctively, intuitively using your innate ability to manifest, the better your life becomes. Maybe these folks are trying to hard to 'wake up' instead of just creating and living life.
Well said, Mary.
There's something seriously wrong here. This discussion must be an illusion, because I agree with every single comment that's been made so far!
This is essentially the idea of Plato's Cave which has been rehashed in philosophy and metaphysics repeatedly since its origin 2382 years ago.
The people behind this video are acting as though they have discovered a new and revolutionary means of understanding reality, but in reality are getting you to hand over money for information and techniques which are not only old and in practice for millennia, but are easily and freely accessible in hundreds of flavors of tradition and philosophy all over the internet and inexpensive books.
Just another conman in the new age market, doing the equivalent of selling ice to the Eskimos.
"Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide - no escape from reality.
Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see........"
Attribute, Freddy and the lads.
I agree with your "bottom line" statement, which effectively implies that the difference between reality and illusion lies with the perspective of the viewer. For instance, even though I may perceive our shared experience as an illusion filtered through my individual experience, it does not negate the reality of it for you, or vice versa. Illusion becomes reality to the extent of its effect on one's perception and point of view.
