"Most think that perception works a lot like a flashlight in the dark, illuminating whatever it’s aimed at. The truth, however, is that instead of revealing what's there, it creates it." - Lou Corleto DC
Said another way. You are actually creating what you see. NOT just observing it. Like the joke of the week. You are really the one who is saying how your life is going. If you are fat or not. If you are successful or not. When you constantly "report the truth or observe the truth" of I am fat, or I am broke. That just reinforces your non-conscious mind to create more of that in your life.
