Wahl und Wirklichkeit
“How can I choose except that I think
And on what do I think except what I know
And what do I know except what is linked
To what I perceive of what has been shown
And yet I believe without understanding
That in each of us is something unchanging
And even if all that’s around us may alter
Our wills are not bound to follow lest falter”
“Reality is what we take to be true.
What we take to be true is what we believe.
What we believe is based on our perceptions.
What we perceive depends on what we look for.
What we look for depends on what we think.
What we think depends on what we perceive.
What we perceive determines what we believe.
What we believe determines what we take to be true.
What we take to be true is our reality.”
