The Clarity of Reality

Standard

As Randy dropped me off at my apartment this afternoon, he said something a certain way, which I had heard numerous times before. Only this time, the way in which he had said it really landed in a way where it made a difference in my perspective on some life situations currently going on for me. He said that the trick isn’t too overcome our emotions around a situation; rather, it is to distinguish between what is reality (the facts of the matter) and the emotions that come up for us when we think about that reality.

The goal isn’t control. The goal is Clarity. It is to be clear about what is absolutely true about a situation and to distinguish that from how we feel about that truth.
