Consensual Reality - comment 61266 - comment 61327

Navigator says ...
Well, there really is only one definition that is truly intrinsic to the principle itself … and not just stated in the terms of one belief system or another ...

Reality is your experience of it.

… and interestingly, I had often thought I had heard that before, but general searching doesn’t turn that up … and I remember when I first thought it and realized myself that it was the one definition that defines all definitions … i.e. that quote could quite possibly be firstly mine … at least in those exact words.

Mark de LA says

3: 22 Experience is created by mind; and the predominant, although not exclusive, contributor to this “knowing of our reality” is perception. Perception is not a direct encounter of what is— it is always indirect, different than, and separate from whatever is perceived. Enlightenment requires a direct-consciousness of the truth, not an indirect perception or experience. Our “consciousness” is stuck within this indirect perceptive-experience. It’s as if we are “looking out from” rather than “being conscious of” the very place we exist.
