Check Reality Before You Live It

Reality-check yourself with the following questions:

- How many realities are there right now? One, two, none?
- Is there just what is or is there something else there (on top of what is, in addition to what is)?
- In this moment right now, is there one and only reality or does it come with a backpack of potential and fiction?
-There you are, right? Right. Now, what about this 'potential you' that you think you can also be right now? Where's that one?
-Where is your potential right now? Show it to yourself!
-What's the difference between 'potential' and 'possible' and 'hypothetical' and 'imaginary'?
-As you look back at the history of facts, do you see any history of potential as well?
-Does reality short-change? Do you?

Check reality before you live it. Certainly, before you judge it (yourself, included).

Enjoy all that is. If "all that is" isn't enough for you, what would be?
