"Choose your reality" is unfortunately a phrase that has been used to dupe many good people of their hard-earned cash.
The concept of "reality" has been debated for centuries, and some believe that we are now drawing closer to understanding what it actually is.
Notwithstanding the various philosophical branches and arguments that have sprung up, we arise every day to a reality which appears defiantly
independent of our control. Of course, with a lot of belief (and a little magic), one can appear to "control" a few events that occur within their
personal sphere. But in our existence, we are not provided with a plethora of "realities" to choose from. Were this the case, many of us would be
lounging around in some garden, eating (or being fed) grapes, and doing nothing in particular.
I know little about the "Montauk Project", and even less about Stewart Swerdlow. Still, I have also lapped up the tidbits: tales of a
crystal-adorned and -powered Atlantis; alien deities in our ancient sky; the arrival of benevolent "alien brethren" to take many to "a better
place". In recent times, I've grown weary of it all. Before these, I was of the firm belief that the Christian eschatology was true, and Jesus'
return was imminent. I'd been filled with horrifying tales of "the beast" and the gruesome torment Christians (who weren't 'raptured') would be
put through. I shudder to recollect those days, and the fear I lived in. So... I changed my "reality".
In our shared reality, nothing changed: Christians still believe what they will, and supporters of Advanced Atlantis live on, reinforcing their
beliefs with what they can. But my perception of these events changed. In truth, this is the only way one can actually "change" anything: people
don't suddenly act nicer to you because you will them to. Opportunities simply surface because you put yourself in a position to see them. Things
"change" because you're looking at them from a different angle.
It does not matter what you call this planet. As long as you consider yourself a "victim", you will continue to live in fear. Life is not a chore to
be completed, or a prison to escape from. Life is not a school where one can fail or succeed. Life is a journey; not to a destination, but a
. And until you start traveling, your surroundings will look the same.
