Are you ready to challenge the very foundations of what you believe reality to be? Listen to our recent Soul Sessions podcast episode to explore the non-duality and its role in the illusory nature of this world. 

Reality is not what you think is (or perceive it to be). In this episode, we break down the illusory nature of the world around us and the concept of non-duality to get a clear picture of what true reality is.

Drawing from Eastern philosophy and the latest in science, we unravel the layers of reality as we know it. We discuss:

  • The concept of Maya and the illusion of the world as perceived by our senses
  • How our brain constructs our experience of colors, sounds and the entire world around us
  • The role of perception in shaping our decisions and behaviors
  • The philosophical and practical implications of non-dualism in daily life

Hello, welcome back to another episode of Soul Sessions with CreativeMind. I am Debra Maldonado, here with Dr. Rob Maldonado. We have an exciting new series on non-dual philosophy. But before we begin, I do want to mention, if you’re watching us on YouTube, or if you’re listening to us on Spotify or iTunes, we’d love to have you continue to come back to see every episode. Let’s talk about today’s episode. We’re talking about perception today.

Perception, Maya, and its practical implications. What does it mean if we’re not perceiving reality? All the movies, like The Matrix and Inception, are really closer to the truth than people think, they’re not just science fiction. There’s some actual evidence we can talk about that points to what the true nature of perception is. What is the true nature of reality?

When you do deeper work, depth psychology, it’s not really about healing your childhood. It’s more about understanding how your mind works, how consciousness works, how you’re a part of this huge universal power, you can create a reality you’d like to be in. With some limitations, but definitely be in control of your life. That’s the most important thing. Why would we want to know this? To philosophize with each other and understand how the matrix works? We want to apply it. We’ll get to that as well.

We teach these topics in a deeper way but we wanted to have a conversation to give people a sense of who we are, what our work is about. Let’s start with perception.
