Seems there are about seven billion of us on the planet at the moment,
and the number is growing – each second.
It also seems that, even in subtle ways, each of us are unique. Wonderful.
Unfortunately, this uniqueness can, and often does, lead to disharmony –
each one of us wanting things to be the way we want them to be. In fact,
we could say that it is this wanting things to be the way we want them to
be is the basis of all disharmony, conflict, and war.
Check it out.
When you are feeling discomfort, disturbed, angry, resentful, or revengeful,

wanting things to be your way. Understandable of course, and not realistic.
As an exercise, just imagine (once again) that way things are for you at
this moment is exactly they way they are meant to be – for your maximum
potential. Get that, and you will not need that uncomfortable situation again.
Ever. Neat eh.
Once again, from Shakespeare:
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
– Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio
It could be that, as is said in the East, what we call reality really is
Experiment with this as if it is a reality – you are not seeing, hearing,
tasting, experiencing what we are calling reality as it really is.
There really is Something Else.

unconscious priority, you are not so likely to have the realisation that
