I am open to it all | Reflections

I am open to it all.

Feeling & observing ones around.⁣⁣⁣
Feeling the separateness in the oneness.⁣⁣⁣⁣
How is it possible, the complete difference in perception.⁣⁣⁣⁣
The complete contrast to openness and closeness.⁣⁣⁣⁣
To what is and what could or could not be.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣

For all I know, we know a fraction of what is real.⁣⁣⁣⁣
A tiny fraction of what truly exists and what does not.⁣⁣⁣⁣
For all I know, until I see something with my own eyes,⁣⁣⁣⁣
It’s hard to say what is and what is not.⁣⁣⁣⁣
Even the most obscure concepts of all.⁣⁣⁣⁣
The most ambiguous ideas out there,⁣⁣⁣⁣
May truly exist.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣

Because for all I know,⁣⁣⁣⁣
We are hypocrites otherwise.⁣⁣⁣⁣
Believing what we choose to think is true⁣⁣⁣⁣
And laughing at what we choose to think is not.⁣⁣⁣⁣
All based on someone else’s word.⁣⁣⁣⁣

For all I know,⁣⁣⁣⁣
Until I see it with my own eyes,⁣⁣⁣⁣
I am open to it all.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

I’ve had a realisation the other day, what makes ‘us’ right?

Who’s to say that what you or me believe is right, who’s to say that what we think is true – really is.. true?

Even silly things like ‘the earth is flat‘. I’m not saying I think it is, in fact, I used to think it’s a pretty idiotic idea. But doesn’t that make me a hypocrite? As far as I know, I haven’t been to space myself to actually see it’s shape.

I actually thought to myself – how hypocritical of me to say those people are wrong when actually, my believe is based on other peoples words and ‘facts’. Who’s to say that it’s not just a perception we’ve been led to believe. This is just an example of course, but it got me thinking.

Who’s to say what we see during our waken hours is true and what happens in our sleep is just a dream? Who’s to say it’s not the other way round?

There are so many questions and so many possibilities.
Many might seem extremely out there and even ridiculous. But to be honest, when we look at what we think our reality is – isn’t that pretty obscure as well?
