Just been thinking about this Phillip K Dick quote today. It’s so brilliant. “Maybe each human being lives in a unique world, a private world different from those inhabited and experienced by all other humans. . . . If reality differs from person to person, can we speak of reality singular, or shouldn’t we really be talking about plural realities? And if there are plural realities, are some more true (more real) than others? What about the world of a schizophrenic? Maybe it’s as real as our world. Maybe we cannot say that we are in touch with reality and he is not, but should instead say, His reality is so different from ours that he can’t explain his to us, and we can’t explain ours to him. The problem, then, is that if subjective worlds are experienced too differently, there occurs a breakdown in communication … and there is the real illness.”
― Philip K. Dick
Boy, can it be hard when realities collide but also the most rewarding.  At times it can feel almost overwhelming, even impossible to see anothers reality.  How can we reconcile it with our own?  There is no easy answer but I can guarantee you the process will be one of the most refining of your life if you let it be. It just takes honest, open hearts that are trying to understand each other and true greatness can be achieved.

This is why I love blogging because it gives insight into the realities of others and I hope it helps people see into mine.  We are all more complicated than at first glance and thank goodness for that.

Have you ever noticed how 2 people can tell the same story and yet it doesn’t seem like the same story? I’ve particularly seen this with couples, especially after a break up.  It would seem like they couldn’t have been in the same marriage.  I think only in time does the nuances of memories cement in our brain.

Anyway, I’ve been thinking about this lately, as life has been a bit stressful.  My reality has not always been what others see.  I came across this quote and it really rings true.

“Maybe each human being lives in a unique world, a private world different from those inhabited and experienced by all other humans. . . . If reality differs from person to person, can we speak of reality singular, or shouldn’t we really be talking about plural realities? And if there are plural realities, are some more true (more real)…
