Personally, I do not belive that reality is a lie.
It is quite real, quite true. It is the only reality we share. It is the only reality we have.
I could not prove this to anyone, but I my life has improved several hundreds of percent since I came to understand the consensus concept of
I avoid negative people and their influence and keep to my happy world, and good comes to me like it never did before. I used to try and push the
river and be the best person I could in the worst of worlds. But that only brought the roof down upon my head.
I have no evidence that the improvements in my life condition are the result of accepting this view, not even evidence to myself. But the belief and
the improvement remain, and grow stronger over time.
Why don't you give it a try, make an effort to believe that consensus works, and that in particular your expectation has the power to influence the
instantiation of the events in your day.
Convince yourself that through believing, small improvements in your life can occur. (This sounds alot like the traditional benefits of religion
Do not try to picture a specific beneficial change to your world, like winning the lottery. Just think positively that something good will happen
Today will be a better day than yesterday, things will go smoother. People will be friendlier toward you.
Give it a few minutes consideration in the morning and evening.
It is a vague enough change to instantiate easily within the preconceptions of others, and yourself. Don't try to materialize a lotus in your palm.
When, it happens recognize that things are going well, or someone was friendly. Respond appropriately to the moment, but do not break the flow of the
moment wondering about whether you influenced the outcome of the moment, just accept it, keep it flowing naturally.
Metaphysics is really unimportant when things are going particularly well anyway, isn't it?
You will not prove anything, but you might, occasionally stop to appreciate how life is constantly improving for you, and come to believe that you
might be influencing that outcome just by believing you can, and expecting it to get better.
You might also try a slightly more interesting variation on this theme and try set your own expectation that you will actually witness an obvious
change in reality. Leave it open, it could be anything. You will know it when you see it. Try to get something to be different from the day before,
not a particular thing, just a glimpse of something being different.
Set your expectaiton that you will witness and recognize something being different from one day to the next. I don't know if this would work, but it
would sure be interesting if it did.
