The mind and its thoughts create your world. The mind creates the illusion you are living in. Thoughts and imagination are creative. They mold and affect your world and how you perceive it. As your thoughts are, so is your world.
When you are spiritually awakened, nothing can affect your mind and moods. You will still need to work and interact with other people and the world around you, and you will do so while remaining not involved in consciousness, as if outside of the world. By focusing your mind on the thoughts you choose, you can affect your “reality” accordingly.
Although there may seem to be a single reality we all occupy, we each experience this reality differently because every person has a unique way of perceiving, processing, and reacting to the world.
