Is reality real or is it just in my head?

i'm not a master. and that is a question for a true master. the beloved meher baba says that what is in your head [if i am understanding you correctly] is not real. if it can be perceived with the senses, or thought about with the ego/mind, it is maya = illusion. reality is beyond that and isn't subject to change or polarity or conditions. of course he is much more eloquent than i. i would recommend the book god speaks by meher baba. or his discourses. ramana maharshi says "reality is simply the loss of the ego. destroy the ego by seeking its identity. because the ego has no real existence, it will automatically vanish, and reality will shine forth by itself in all it's glory. this is the direct method. all other methods retain the ego. in those paths so many doubts arise, and the eternal question remains to be tackled. but in this method the final question is the only one and is raised form the very beginning."
