We do not experience things as they really are! We experience things only through a filter and that filter determines what information will enter our awareness and what will be rejected. If we change the filter (our belief system), then we automatically experience the world in a completely different way.
Human senses, sense less the 1% of the universe, that exists everywhere always. The mind then filters that sensory information, through an mishmash of biases, opinions and sometimes just pure unadulterated BS and wrap it up neatly into a “system of belief.” AND … We are part of that very same universe.
