When you begin to break through the paradigm you were born into, you will experience the true nature of reality. However, you need to do one of several things:
1) Re-learn everything you were taught.
2) Turn off your TV and stop reading newspapers.
3) Get rid of toxicity in your life: from friends to diets.
4) Meditate if you can or feel you need to.
5) Follow what is deep in your heart.
There are many more things you can do but this is just a start.
