Don Quixote had created a model of reality that filled his world with many imaginary enemies. In reaction to this belief system, he created himself to be a knight in shining armor. He went out into the world to conquer these enemies that he’d created in his imagination.
He attacked a sword-wielding giant that turned out to be nothing more than a windmill with blades swinging in the wind. His distorted model of reality compelled him to become what he was NOT (a knight in shining armor trying to save the day), which had him behaving in bizarre ways.
Become aware of your model of reality. Your reality is ‘your personal model’, and the odds are that some of it is based on erroneous notions that you accepted as true during childhood rearing. You are an unlimited being and the world is here to help you experience that. If you are experiencing anything less, it is time to investigate what you consider true about you and the world in which you live. To the degree that you find it difficult to live in this world, your model of reality is erroneous; it’s hampering you.
When your points of view are fraught with error, you find yourself unnecessarily struggling with the environment in which you live – you begin attacking harmless windmills, believing they are evil powers trying to conquer you. When you aspire to notice what is erroneous about your model of reality, the truth quite naturally shines through. You will feel very different about the world in which you live, and you will see yourself in an entirely new light.
