Reality is subjective, each person creates their own reality based on their perceptions. The more focused their thoughts and beliefs, the more that thought manifests itself in our physical world becoming reality and further enforcing that persons personal beliefs and reality. When people share the same reality it is because they have agreed to believe another persons concept and perceptions of reality. Reality is personal and many realities that are opposed to each other can beyond all comprehension exist simultaneously. Reality like perception only exist in the minds of the individual. Thus we create our own gods to reinforce our concepts of what God is, we find many "Proofs" to reinforce our thoughts, and like wise find faults in other "gods", while each person does the same with in their own reality spears. We become the co-creator of our own Space/Time model and universe. Only when we allow ourselves to explore those areas around us that are outside or zone of comfortably can we find meaning in the seemingly coincidences of thought and manifestation of our desires both positive and negatively. Ones thoughts constantly focus on a negative and the universal creation of that though manifest to reinforce that belief. How is it that two people brought up the same way have two different realities? It is what that person manifest in his/her reality.

It depends on which base concept we analyse the things.. If you use "Free Will" concept, then its Humans wo decides the correct, right wrong etc... If you use the "Maha Maya" concept, then its all under the control of the God and "Free Will" is just an illusion in it..

Hi shivram, I think that we create our own reality and so it can be different for each of us. There is a true story of a salesman who asked to be moved from a certain territory because he said that it was impossible to sell there. The man was experienced and had been with the company for many years, so they moved him to another area. Meanwhile another man was placed in his old territory but was told nothing about the experience of the last salesman. Within six months he had outsold all the other salesmen with the company. One man saw it as a territory where it was impossible to sell anything, the other saw it as a great opportunity. Blessings.

Reality is simple once you understand. Life if about learning and growing as people. God is teaching His children. God sets the parameters. We use our free will to make choices. We learn through the consequences of our choices. We learn wisdom. Simple yet so complex.

Very complex thing indeed. Surely none of us actually knows if or not that we are moving and talking is the 'reality' or is it just the shadow of reality? Plato had said that the Earth we dwell in is the shadow of the shadow of the original world. By which he wanted to mean realty. Reality, in everyday usage, means "the state of things as they actually exist". In a sense it is what is real.  The term reality, in its widest sense, includes everything that is, whether or not it is observable or comprehensible. Reality in this sense includes being and sometimes is considered to include nothingness, where existence is often restricted to being (compare with nature). In the strict sense of western philosophy, there are levels or gradation to the nature and conception of reality. These levels include, from the most subjective to the most rigorous: phenomenological reality, truth, fact, and axiom.
