About the author:
Joseph and Carol Bennette have authored this book as a continuing tribute to the brilliance and wonder that is Nature and Humanity within it.
They are the product of their separate and united journeys. Their two perspectives complement each other – usually peacefully – synergizing two into a much broader perspective, ONE.
Together they are more than the sum of their parts – an emergent evolution – that fosters a deeper appreciation for the relationship they enjoy with all.

Joseph Bennette, Carol Bennette
This is the second in a series of our observations, hypotheses, thoughts, and considerations about our universe.
I exist in a matrix of my own beliefs. It appears I’m making choices based on “best evidence” or whatever criteria I feel justifies my behavior associated with my choices.
Yet, each choice exists in a sea of my own beliefs. It appears to me that I’m making a single choice when I choose a TV station, for example. Instead, I may be highlighting a belief that is perhaps ready for investigation!
Perhaps my conscious mind does not direct my life any more than I direct a movie at a theater. Instead, maybe my subconscious mind takes care of just about everything in my life – allowing my conscious mind to sit back, NOTICE and ENJOY. Rather than to direct my life as I’ve been taught, perhaps the most useful function of my conscious mind is merely to notice and appreciate. Maybe stop scratching at the screen trying to make a difference in the movie's plot.
I realize I need to make my life work the way I want it to because I don’t like the feeling of being out of control to a reality that seems insane. When I feel I’m being set up to experience that reality, I resist - trying to fix what I see before me on the screen of my projection by pounding at it and screaming obscenities. No wonder change seems so difficult – I’m working myself to death applying insanity to fix the insanity!
As long as I need to defend the madness, my need keeps me from the peace I AM right now. Holding my absurdity as the truth, I continue to live in a bubble of competition and defense.
Until I question that truth, madness will rule my life as reality and I will live with the need for suffering, justification, and separation – never realizing true peace.
When is the last time you questioned your reality? How sure are you of its truth? Do you ever find yourself asking, "Is it true?"
