With this example of the stereogram, it can be demonstrated that there can be two realities about this single phenomenon – the butterfly exists, or it doesn’t. That is, it is our reality that creates our beliefs. Our reality, in turn, stems from our perception. In our day-to-day lives, we are not going to read the reality we are living in as if it were written in a manual. However, our reality is constantly expressed through our thought patterns, our beliefs, and in fact through what happens to us every moment.
