Various answers I could choose to reply to that question:
1) Nothing makes me, I choose to.
2) My thoughts make me think that my thoughts create my reality. There is nothing else that has the power to make me believe this way. I choose to align with this belief because I witness it happening day after day to myself and others in all the ways I described earlier.
3) Are you saying that reality creates your thoughts? Then where do emotions derive from? I hear reports of people experiencing hatred, anger, jealousy and anxiety to name a few, therefore the emotions are part of reality. (objectively) Then why have I never experienced these emotions? Is it not because reality cannot make me
experience them? Is it not because I choose not to think thoughts that cause these emotions to appear in reality? (subjectively)
4) In my reality my thoughts create my reality. In your reality this may not be the case. How would I know if your reality works the same way as mine does? Maybe in my next life I'm in a reality filled with pokemon and all I know is that I gotta catch em all.
