We take everything on faith. Or close enough. "Objective reality" is pretty much fabricated, assumed, projected, inferred, made up, and pretended to be what we say it is. How do we know that what we say is so, is so? Who says so? And, who says they know what they are talking about? And, we can take this question all the way out, until we finally have to say, "I DO! I SAY SO! I SAY THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT! I TAKE THEIR WORD FOR IT!!!" We are the final authority declaring to be so what we say is so. Reality is what we say it is. It all may as well be made right up on the spot, for all the good having someone who knows tell us what's what, which leaves us having to take on faith that they know what they are talking about! And, when you consider that for the first 14 or so years of our life, we were told repetitively how things are, and threatened handsomely, and punished severely, for not buying into what we were being sold, you have to wonder how solid our foundation is when it comes to knowing and not knowing what is so. How many Qanoners have any foundation at all? Reality is on shaky grounds. That being the case, we would be doing well, in my estimation, to make things up to provide the greatest good for the greatest number of people-- and take it on faith that this is how things are, and how they should be, and live as though that is the case. How about Liberty! Justice! Equality! Truth! for starters? Live in ways which honor those values, and let everything fall into place around that!
If you are going to die, die with cookies in the oven and crumbs on your plate. Don't let the idea of your dying stop you, or even slow you down. Do what the moment calls to be done every moment, and let death take care of itself. Die surprised that you would die at all. The good thing about death is that it keeps us focused on living fully in every moment. It is, "Here we are, now what?" all the way. As long as we are alive, we live attuned to the moment, absorbed in the moment, open to the moment, looking for what needs to happen and how we can assist that into being with the gifts of our original nature that come with us from the womb. We bring what we have to bear on every situation as it arises, and let that be that, as we step into the next situation that is arising, looking for "What here? What now?" in every day. When we wake up at night, and there is nothing going on, we review what has gone before, and anticipate what is coming up, always reflecting on what has happened, and what will likely happen, searching for new realizations and better ways of dealing with our circumstances-- observing, observing, observing-- observing ourselves observing... looking, looking, looking in order to see more than we have seen, and do better than we have done, up to our final breath-- living as long as life lasts with cookies in the oven and crumbs on our plate, sorry that we don't have more time left to do what needs to be done.
