"All statements are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some

sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false
and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense.
" -Robert Anton Wilson
"For every Perspective, there is an equal and opposite Perspective!" - The First
Law of Soul Dynamics

Does the typical (You create your own reality) belief system have an inherent co
ntradiction?
What I mean by the 'typical' "You create your own reality" belief is the way Dav
id Icke explains it. Quoting Icke:
You create your own reality. When you do that consciously, you can create th
e reality you want. At the moment, you are creating your reality, but you're doi
ng it by allowing your sense of reality to be externally programmed. You can dis
connect from that and you can consciously create what you want. Because you are
everything!
Who's Controlling You? with David Icke

The contradiction comes in, I believe, in the following (what I consider to be t


he essential definition of the law of attraction):
David Icke: What you put out is what you get back
Those two quotes describe the most
n reality" belief system that I've
your reality BUT you are bound by
the two quotes above contradict is

the ultimate justice

common explanation of the "You create your ow


heard in my life. It's basically: "You create
the law of attraction." The reason I believe
the following:

If the statement "you can create the reality you want" is true then people would
not be bound by any rules such as the second quote. Why? The reason is because
if you're creating your own reality then you are also creating the rules in that
reality (if any).
The above two quotes are like telling someone that they have unlimited power and
then telling them about their limitations. That's what I feel is the contradict
ion here.
Now, here's a thought that I've never read before...
What if the "elite" can create their reality to the point where Icke's second qu
ote doesn't apply to them? After all, if one can create their own reality, one c
reates the rules for that reality (if any).
If we look at things from that perspective, it may actually explain a question t
hat people ask all the time:
"How can the 'elite' get away with all their atrocities with seemingly no reperc
ussions?"
Well, if they're creating their reality at a level where they can bypass the law
of attraction that Icke described in the second quote, it all may make sense.

That's a very frightening idea. But, is it not consistent with the theory that w
e all create our own reality?

You could have used quotes from everywhere else except David Icke. Here on ATS,
the man does cause some controversy. In any case , on this occasion, the quote i
s valid.
There is no contradiction between the two quotes. The law of attraction is exact
ly the same as the first quote, except it requires more will power.

A belief system is like a map.
It has value to the extent that it comes close to reflecting objective reality.
If you try to build a map of the world around your own personal preferences, you
end up with a map which won't send you in the right direction when you want to
get home.

The cookie crumbles and the crumbs fall as they may. We don't "create" our reali
ty.
We do have control over how we interpret and react to situations and events, but
I see no logic in believing we can create that which is with anything other tha
n action.

I don't agree with that at all. How can you put an arbitrary limitation on what
"reality creation" involves and how it's done?
IMHO, once you start putting limitations on the first quote, it becomes meaningl
ess.
You can claim that one must use the law of attraction to "create [their] own rea
lity", but who could be so presumptuous as to put those kinds of limitations on
what the process may entail?
Also, even if you believe that the law of attraction is essential in the beginni
ng of the process, how can you say that it can't be done away with later in the
process?
Again, if you put those kinds of limitations on creating one's own reality then
I don't think you actually believe that one creates their own reality. It would
be more accurate to say:
"You create your own reality with limitations."
That would make the whole belief system fall apart IMHO.

In my opinion this is not the case. The cookie just doesn't crumble wherever it
wants.
Sadly, it tends to be the more agressive ,greedy and unscrupulous among us that
have more success with the law of attraction. Only because the focus of their wi
ll power is sharper and denser.
The rest of us were taught by religion to get rid of passions and turn the other
cheek. Hence becomming a bunch of sheep.

Reality is a son of a bitch to stick a pin, eh? If we had ten people sitting on
a train and asked them to describe their experience, they might only agree that
they were on a train. The rest of it could be differences in interpretation of w
eather, the influence of moods and health and their current psychological state.
For example, a passenger with hip pain would be on a drawn out, tedious journey
and the passenger next to them could be meeting a new love and their journey wo
uld be flying by.
My point here is how do we *prove* we're 'creating' reality when it's a tough ol
d task to agree what we're measuring?
Personally, I think we 'create' our own reality within the tiny, subjective sphe
re of our own influence. I don't think for a moment that we can ask the universe
or that 'laws of attraction' have any validity in terms of changing the world.
I always recall the story of a terminal woman crying to her surgeon because she
was dying. She had prayed her ass off and wasn't getting any better. She interpr
eted this as 'failing' to have the faith in her beliefs and worried that, deep d
own, she didn't love her kids as much as she should do. Surely her asking the un
iverse was noble and 100% committed?
She's one example and yet we see 1000s of contestants failing each year on vario
us X-Factor shows. The bankruptcy courts are full of people whose emphatic will
to create wealth in their lives have led to poverty.
If there's one Everest of a contradiction, it's how we pick the winners to 'prov
e' laws of attraction and ignore the overwhelming number of losers.

For some , the law of attraction is a given. There is no authoritative system ca
lled "The law of attraction". It is just a convenient phrase to use.
We all have desires. They reflect on the astral plane. When the images are loade
d with passion/emotions (either voluntarily or not) they become strong and have
no option other than reflect on th physical plane. That is universal law.
The two planes must reflect each other. Images which are half-baked for lack of
passion and clarity will not manifest.
This is one of the oldest and most basic technique of magic, requiring little tr
aining. I am not divulging anything that is not already known by a large group o
f people.

Life itself is one giant paradox: we continuously strive for survival despite kn
owing our eventual death is inevitable. Therefore, it is common for many aspects
of life to be prone to contraction. The greatest limitation we can place on our
selves is to believe we cannot transcend our own limitations...

I agree. I also think that perhaps people are fundamentally confused by these pr
incipals in large due to how we perceive our reality as we grow.
I feel that for the most part these theorys are actually pretty sound. The probl
em is the way we apply it. It's all backwards.
We often look to these ideas because of a lack of something. Deep down its often
driven by an emptiness or a feeling that some thing is missing. This is the fir

st mistake.
Then we seek the truth, we know that if we get answers that somehow this thing t
hat we are trying to understand will give meaning to it and hopefully we can get
some for ourselves too. Second mistake.
Now we are trying to apply this to ourselves and some succeed and many don't. So
we think the idea is either wrong, or its sound and the universe doesn't care.
Mistake upon mistake.
The universe doesn't care. What we are missing is what we are all born with. Spi
rit.
That's the thing that diminishes as we become adults. As we grow responsibility,
getting an education, work, emotional trauma it all becomes our reality, we don
't pay any attention to our spirit and this diminishes it.
By the time we think to do something about it we fail to see the cause because w
e are too busy treating the symptoms.
IMO.

Wait didn't you do a thread very similar to this like a few days ago? I could be
having Deja vu...
We don't create our own reality, we share a collective reality. This "creation"
of our own realities is due to the fact that we lack a consensus on the informat
ion were exposed to.
Flat Earther's are the best example of this. Their warped perception of informat
ion on the curvature is due to their lack of exposure to information to the cont
rary.
In short it's all a matter of perception to information.

What you put out is what you get back - the ultimate justice

Of course its a contradiction. The so called law of karma is another deception,


there is no such thing. Another controller meme like "sin". It works in so much
as the fear it instils into people.
