Real reality

 

The life of the spirit, by integrating us in the real order established by God, puts us in the fullest possible contact with reality – not as we imagine it, but as it really is.

— Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island

What is real and what isn’t? Half the time, I don’t really know…to be honest. With all the voices, the noise, coming at me from all directions; with marketing strategies that subtly change my perception of what is important and what isn’t; with my own longings to be this or do that.  It’s near impossible for me to keep straight what is up and what is down.

Light. I need light in this world of shadows. Not lots of lights; just one. The true one.
