Once the moment that’s occurring right now passes, it’s over and done with, but the more real one makes what happens in life, the more what happens in life becomes one’s reality.
The more real one makes what happens in life, the more what happens in life becomes one’s reality. The key here is to know what makes reality, reality. Is it real because it’s occurring or is it real because of the way what’s occurring is being perceived? Or is none of it real regardless of what’s occurring because as soon as it occurs, it’s over and done with, except to a mind that wants to attach to it. We call this attachment memory, but what it is really is a made up story which becomes one’s reality.
Because as soon as something occurs it’s over and done with, where is its reality but in between one’s ears. This isn’t to disregard what happens, but isn’t it true that once the moment passes it becomes the past, so where is the reality of the past; show it to me? Let’s say you had an injury that left a scar, you can show the scar, but to go beyond the scar you have to tell a story and where is the reality of the story but in between one’s ears; this is because once the moment passes, it’s over and done with.
So how does one decipher what’s real and what’s made up? Very simple, by being with the reality of what’s happening right now, not five minutes ago or five minutes from now, but right now. There’s your reality, there’s everyone’s reality, but the misgiving is most don’t get this, so five minutes ago or five minutes from now is where most realities are. Reality can only truly be seen now because it’s always now. The future and the past are thoughts conjured up by the Conditioned Mind and why this makes right now the only true reality is because the future never comes and once the moment passes, it’s over and done with.
