“While we can control how we respond to what happens to us, we can’t control everything that happens to us.  We are all too interconnected, both with each other and our environment–life is too wonderfully complex–for a statement like ‘you create your own reality’ to be simply true.  A belief that I control or create my own reality actually attempts to rip out of me the rich, complex, mysterious, and supportive context of my life … to deny the web of relationships that nurtures me and each of us daily.”  –Treya Wilber
