We create our own reality for a person, event, occasion, corporate-entity. Quickly various inputs are assumed based on minimal facts and an imagined face is given. Green Valliey was assumed to be something and reality turned out to be different.
This happens all the time with everything we come across. That's the way mind is built, never living in reality, all the time assuming threats, imagined insecure positions, anxious futures. In the process, missing to live the connected world. Living the connected physical feeling state, life traverse on that, bereft of all the anxieties related to secured life in all aspects of life.
A person, as he is, is what he makes of himself or what he is made out to be? Then the freewill is!

The whole materialistic world created out of thinking is part the total energy. Thinking is prior to materialistic creation. (Creation or recreation?). ("When one gives one's heart, it is a total action. And when you give your mind, it is a fragmentary action."-K.) And thinking emanates out of mind. Materialistic stream is flowing all the time.
Materialistic world and functions are necessary and inevitable part of total energy. Whether an individual soul partakes in it or not is its freewill. If it doesn't partake, it is not an individual soul. Every moment, the choice is there.
