Reality is a tricky word. Reality is based on perception and perception is different for everyone. Reality is a very individual and unique experience. Reality can be influenced by majority; get enough people to believe and experience reality in a similar way and you have a new reality. Reality is always changing, sometimes it is a slow shift and others you won't know what hit you.
We each have our own filters and blinders on. We, as a people, used to believe that we were the center of the universe, that was our reality, now we don't believe that, we have a new reality.
Since reality is defined by perception, you are in control of your reality. You are creating and redefining it constantly. You are in control and with work and focus you can effect conscious change.
