The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched ... but are felt in the heart.

Reality

Ask, and it shall be given to you;
seek, and you shall find; knock, and
it shall be opened to you.

                     -- Matthew 7:7

Look around you. What do you see?

Is that reality? Is it? What is reality, anyway -- is it limited to just what you can see, and touch, and hear?

Definitely not. You see only the things you look for. You hear only the things you listen to. Reality is much, much more. True reality consists of all possibilities. Reality is everything that is, and everything that could possibly be.

What you see is just what you notice, the things you tune in to. Reality is everything. It has no physical limit, no intellectual or spiritual limit. It is anything you decide it can be.

Yet we get stuck in thinking that there’s only one way reality can be. That holds us back. It puts us in a trance, where the only things possible are the things that already are. It drastically limits our options. The universe is overflowing with abundance, if only we will look for it.

At any moment in time, an infinite number of possibilities are open to you. And then the next moment, another infinite number of possibilities are there. You sail each day on a sea of possibilities. You can change direction at any moment you choose and go wherever you want.

— Ralph Marston
