Reality: Take it or leave it

There are no facts, only interpretations.  ~Friedrich Nietzsche

Maybe reality isn’t static. Maybe it’s as changing as our breath and totally personal. I would assume most of us think our view of reality is pretty positive. That all is good with the universe……until something happens or better yet when we receive knowledge that something has happened. We can be rolling along with our happy view of reality in tact, but something “bad” may have happened yesterday. Our altered state doesn’t happen until we get the news.

What is reality anyway!  It’s nothing but a collective hunch.  ~Jane Wagner, The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, 1985, performed by Lily Tomlin

Maybe it’s like our ole pal Nietzsche talked about “interpretations”. The Gulf Oil spill is real, but it’s reality is different for me or someone from the Gulf Coast as opposed to say, someone in Kansas. We are affected differently, therefore our reality is different.

Any thoughts out there on this? Do the circumstances change your spiritual beliefs? The direction of your life or outlook? Or is all of that temporary until the next “reality” ascends upon you? Maybe reality is just a thread of constant events and positions in our lives.
