I am predicting that this is going to be the newest coolest way of living in not to distant future. In some countries they are already practising this, more or less most of time – mainly because of course they have no choice. Over here though, in our western world of fads and materialism, we are doing everything we can to not live our present lives out.
Reality based living is just that. We live based on what is happening here and now. Not what is going to happen, what has happened, what might happen, what should or should not be happening. This means looking at what we have in front of us and accepting it as real, that it is our experience and that is perfect as it is.
Rejecting or resisting our reality is a way of avoiding the present as a gift to our understanding of ourselves and everything around us. Regrets, guilts and even anger are all ways we resist the present moment. Thinking it should be or should have been some other way.
A different way to live, which holds far less suffering, is to confront our reality head on, face ourselves and ask what is it that we are refusing to acknowledge. Once we face this, once we see what we are refusing to accept, our soul moves into alignment with our experience and we can truly become empowered in our experience.
We then see that every living being, every living thing is Divine, there to show us our current self, our current reality, if we chose to accept it. We no longer reject those that point out the truth, but embrace it as bringing us into a harmonious relationship with our souls.
Once we see how darn clever our reality really is, it becomes full of meaning. Our lives become full of meaning. We see that the only thing ever in control is our souls, which we can align with or not. I guess it then comes down to which experience is easier. Reality avoiding or reality living. The truth is the truth, whether you like it or not. Why not then align with your reality and make friends with truth.
