Objective reality does not really exist: for every human being, the only reality is what they live and feel. Take the case of someone who has hallucinations: they feel that they are pursued by monsters, they are terrified and flee screaming. Physically, visibly, no one is attacking them, but they feel persecuted, and are suffering, and when someone suffers, try telling them that it is only an illusion! Their suffering is real! In the same way, in the middle of the worst material situations, certain human beings can experience illumination and ecstasy. Once again, how can they be persuaded that it is not real? They are truly immersed in joy.
The suffering and joy we feel are perhaps the only things we never doubt. In effect, we can doubt what we see, what we hear, and what we touch, but what we feel, what we live, can never be doubted; this is reality. In this sense, it can be said that the human being is the master of reality, because if they decide to bring heaven to life within themselves, they will achieve it, and whatever the conditions, it is heaven that they will experience.
