Well, that’s pretty good. Reality, like plant medicine, is two things. And it depends upon the conversation that I am having with you as to what I’m talking about, so it’s very contextual in that sense.

Reality is what you see when you look around you. It’s the objects you can put labels on. It’s the world as you know it. And the problem is that it is not reality. It’s fully perceptual, so there is that perceptual reality that I don’t really call reality, and then there is the reality of the Spirit self. Spirit is at the top of the mountain, looking down at the physical self, but from a much broader viewpoint. But even that is limited.

For a human, reality is very misunderstood, and there is no “reality.” However, out of the energetic presence of the creator of this universe, the Source Field, there is what your science is beginning to recognize as a consciousness of energetic fields on the quantum level.
