It is so important that we acknowledge the reality of this existence. We get so busy painting our ideas of how this life should be, that we actually miss what is really happening. We walk with a bag on one side that is good and a bag on the other side that is bad. Everything we pick up goes into either the good bag or the bad bag. Take away the good and bad, and it is what it is. When you can see it as it is, it is beautiful. When you were young, you had this ability. You could see something for what it was - not good and bad, right and wrong.
