Reality ~ A Poem About Love by Rabia

Reality 

 In love, nothing exists between heart and heart.
Speech is born out of longing,
True description from the real taste.
The one who tastes, knows;
the one who explains, lies.
How can you describe the true form of Something
In whose presence you are blotted out?
And in whose being you still exist?
And who lives as a sign for your journey?

– Rabia  

Today’s Quote on Happiness by Tolstoy

Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved! That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly.

Leo Tolstoy

Something to Think About

One common mistake is to think that one reality is the reality. You must always be prepared to leave one reality for a greater one.

Mother Meera

 

I spent much of my professional life as qualitative researcher. My students and collected stories and tried to make sense out of the collective stories to assist those we worked with to recognize the legitmacy of a different reality.

I’ve fallen many times into the trap of believing my way of seeing was the only way of seeing. Seldom did this kind of thinking produce any benificial results for me or anyone else.

Growth for me occurred when I recognized each of us has a limited view of reality. We need each other to piece our views of reality together to create a beautiful mosaic of differing perspectives.

Have you experienced an aha moment when you understood your view of reality was microcosmic?

Was it humbling? Did it inspire you to learn more about other viewpoints?

Today’s Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on Change

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
