Reality - Now In Whole Grain
Why choose Unprocessed Reality?
Because it contains the germ, the kernel, the essence of Reality.
Grinding up Reality in our heads to make it blander, fluffier, and easier to shape only seems to make Reality easier to digest... until we come down with Reality Deficiencies.
Humans like to think of themselves as rational beings. But we are also rationalization beings.
With our powerful brains we easily fold, spindle, and mutilate reality into something more to our liking. But too often, this reality only exists inside our heads.
When we see reality as a matter of will, of mind over matter, we stop minding what matters. We have to give up the idea that we can impose our will on reality.
We have to stop seeing our failures as a failure to impose our will on reality. We have to stop seeing our triumphs as a triumph that imposed our will on reality.
Reality is not the problem. Reality is the solution.
Since we really don’t want our dreams, ambitions, and lives to exist independent of reality.
It is so much more rewarding to actually get what we want.
