The Lens to Reality

There is one reality "out there" but we all have different perspectives on that reality because we view it through the lens of our world view. Our world view and the values and belief systems it contains creates a lens through which we see reality. Different people have different reality lenses. Some people view things pretty clearly through a well focused lens, but most of us need some sort of vision correction to see reality clearly. This web site is about correcting our "reality vision."

Lots of things can warp your reality vision. What you are taught, what you choose to believe, your circumstances, your genetics, and the people around you all influence how you see reality. While I would like to think my reality vision is focused and clear, I'm sure it is far from perfect. It is myopic in some places and foggy in others. The good news is that we don't need an eye surgeon to improve our reality vision.

The friends and resources (like books and other media) I value most are those that help me see reality more clearly. In my world view I have confidence that I can improve in this area because my God is my Ultimate Reality, and He wants me to know Him. I honestly believe that true Reality cannot be found apart from the God of the Bible. I'm interested in what you think. Leave me a comment below.
