Facing Reality

We gravitate to what's tangible, what's right in front of us.

We gravitate to what's tangible, what's right in front of us. If we can see it, touch it, manipulate it, then it must be real.

We're obsessed with labels, categories, neat little boxes.

We're obsessed with labels, categories, neat little boxes. Black or white, love or hate, be or not be, no middle ground.

In this absoluteness, we think we end where our skin meets the air.

In this absoluteness, we think we end where our skin meets the air. An uncontrollable wind of swirling thoughts in our heads.

Oh dear one, it's time you wake up, lift the fog, and begin to see.

Oh dear one, it's time you wake up, lift the fog, and begin to see. You are so much more than these bones and flesh, living and breathing in everything.

You are the same energy that fills our oceans, and encompasses our skies.

You are the same energy that fills our oceans, and encompasses our skies. A network tightly woven, invisible to the naked eye.

We are ~in~ this Universe, yes it is true.

We are ~in~ this Universe, yes it is true. But above all else, we are ~of~ this Universe, through and through.
