These realities become all that we know and can even imagine as reality, even if we imagine ourselves as spiritual beings. Our lives, for the most part, become only a symbolic acting out of what we originally “knew” and wanted. We become “should-ists” rather than "is-ists”. We become obsessed with following (or resisting) “shoulds” and “responsibilities”. We end up believing our own propaganda and story about our lives and "happiness" (or lack of it). Currently many of us do a "spiritual bypass" using “spirituality” as a way of avoiding what is in front of our face.

(Continually under construction)
One man's "too much intellect" is another man's "to simple and unthinking"
Create your life out of whole cloth
Most stimuli are really responses
Consciousness first, other concerns second
That which is not allowed doesn't get heard
You have no business spending a lot of time in your head if you're not yet firmly based in your heart
People with big egos either tout themselves, or put down others who tout themselves
Too much control eliminate possibility
