Byron Katie in her book Loving What Is has interesting things to say about reality -
Reality for me is what's true. The truth is whatever is in front of you, whatever is really happening, whether you like it or not.
She described her own reality - Woman sitting with a cup of tea. In stressful times I check in with myself like this, sometmes several times in a day, asking What is my reality?
Woman sitting at laptop by the light of a lamp. Warm, fed, clothed, sheltered, safe, happy. and In the present.
For a few moments not fretting about the past or worrying about an imagined future, or thinking things should be different than they are. Grounded in reality. Loving what is.
I feel it keeps me honest with myself, and perhaps it keeps me sane!
What is your reality? The chances are that if you are reading this you are basically okay.
Part of mine as I write this is the heavenly scent of these hyacinths which fills the room and feeds my soul.
Thinking of you today PennyL!
