What is the reality distortion field?
I heard the term repeated this morning in relation to the Chaos-maker in Chief, so I checked the online definition against what I thought that it meant, and saw it primarily referred to Steve Jobs (Apple computer fame) ability to create a fantasy so real that others bought into it and helped bring it into reality.
How Jobs did this was through positive visualization, high-energy promotion through marketing savvy, and flat-out lying.
I think the last attribute best applies to our current chaotic situation, BUT…while I was contemplating how each of us tends to “create our own reality” and “see things the way we want to see them” I ran across some contributing thoughts from others on the subject.
Some of these thoughts might more directly apply to my consideration of creating a reality distortion field—‘seeing reality as you wish to see it while convincing others to do the same,’ and other thoughts mentioned are in reference to consciousness in general and how we tend to only focus on those aspects that we choose to be our focus to create the reality that we presently live in.
“To become familiar with your unconscious states of mind and body takes an act of will, intention, and heighten awareness. If you become more aware, you become more attentive. If you become more attentive, you become more conscious. If you grow to be more conscious, you will notice more. If you notice more, you have a greater ability to observe self and others, both inner and outer elements of your reality. Ultimately, the more you observe, the more you awaken from the states of the unconscious mind into conscious awareness.
The purpose of becoming self-aware is so that you no longer allow any thought, action, or emotion you don’t want to experience to pass by your awareness. Thus, in time, your ability to consciously inhibit those states of being will stop firing and wiring of the old neural networks that are related to the old personality. And as a result of no longer re-creating the same mind on a daily basis, you prune away the hardware that is related to the old self. In addition, by interrupting the feelings that are associated with those thoughts, you are no longer signaling genes in the same way. You are stopping the body from reaffirming itself as the same mind. This process is whereby you quite simply begin to ‘lose your mind.’
As you develop the skill of becoming familiar with all aspects of your old self, you will ultimately become more conscious. Your goal here is to unlearn who you used to be, so that you can free up energy to create a new life, new personality. You can’t create a new personal reality as the same personality. You have to become someone else. Awareness is your first task in moving from your past to creating a new future.”
“You create your reality, but reality is creating you, too!” Examining the difference between personal and consensus reality.
“Where you focus your emotions is how you tend to view your life. Intentionally change your emotions for the better and you change your life view to reflect a more loving, compassionate life.”
