Project Athena - Day 154 (Reflection)

"Reality" Distorted?

My last day of reflections and I have a few questions. How have we as a human race come to believe that there is only one right way, one absolute truth, one way to perceive "reality"? Who told us there was normal and not normal? And who decided the bell curve was a good model to describe the human condition?

These are not meant to be rhetorical questions. I just wonder about these things because every person who has ever lived and perceived has seen the world through their own set of distorted lenses, even those I consider enlightened. And so, who really even knows if there is such a thing as truth or enlightenment or reality?

What if it's ALL illusion? And what if there were no answers to the questions? I guess then I just get to choose what I will believe to keep from going bonkers.

I choose to believe in Love as a universal reality/truth. (Implicitly, i am also choosing to believe there is an "i" who can believe things, an high vibration of energy known as love, and that there are universes.)
