The world as it is


No one sees reality.

It’s worth repeating: No one accurately sees the world as it is.

A person with hearing loss doesn’t experience the world the same way a synesthete does. A rock climber doesn’t see a steep slope the same way an elderly person does. And an optimist and a pessimist rarely experience opportunities in identical ways.

And each is correct.

Correct in that their experience of the world is their experience of the world. It’s not possible for anyone to actually see the world as it is.

But there’s a significant opportunity we can work toward:

To experience the world in a useful way.

Not correctly, but usefully.

If the methods you’ve used to judge other people, to choose projects or to make decisions have been helping you get exactly what you seek, congratulations.

For the rest of us, there’s a chance to work on our filters, our habits and our instincts.

To engage with the world and our choices in a way that’s useful.

Today’s a perfect day to begin a whole new pattern.

Everyone should be able to say this at the end…everyone.

This wasn’t for any religious reasons.
They couldn’t find three wise men and a virgin.

AZ QuOte: Jim Butcher, author of the Dresden Files

Passion has overthrown tyrants and freed prisoners and slaves.
Passion has brought justice where there was savagery.
Passion has created freedom where there was nothing but fear.
Passion has helped souls rise from the ashes of their horrible lives
and build something better, stronger, more beautiful.

Quote: Ray Bradbury (about Fahrenheit 451)

the firemen are rarely necessary.
The public itself stopped reading of its own accord.

Quote: Lenny Bruce


The ‘what should be’ never did exist,
but people keep trying to live up to it.
There is no ‘what should be,’
there is only what is.
