I, and some others who speak of spiritual matters, talk about how our reality is a construction of our own consciousness. That is to say that our reality is created by our own consciousness, and is itself our own consciousness interacting with itself through apparent individualization.
If you are able to penetrate the 'illusion,' and see clearly, you will see that culture is the play of your own consciousness, working itself out on a mass scale. You cannot be trapped or disempowered in any way. In fact, if this is truly seen, all repression you have ever felt is removed, and you will feel empowered beyond what you have ever imagined. Nothing you perceive is beyond your own personal range of influence; what you perceive is the result of your range of influence.

If this is indeed true, does that mean I can re-create my reality to anything I want it to be? Or am I constrained by the collective?
