Of course not! Yet that is exactly what we do almost all the time. We settle for the picture and not the thing. Life is not a concept. it’s not a selfie or a YouTube video.

It is felt, tasted, smelled and relished. If I taste an orange I need no one explain it to me.

Stop for a moment and just take in the incredible reality of your mysterious existence. The effortless awareness that is constantly present. The richness of this moment.

All real and all right here. Not concepts, not pictures, not ideas, not a post on Facebook but the real thing.

And when you are tasting the real thing, do you need to describe it? Do you need a picture of it?

Stop settling for concepts of life, for pictures in book. You are the life you are meant to enjoy.

Stop eating the menu and dig into the meal.[/fusion_text][/one_full]
