There is a time in all of our existences when we need to get to full reality on all levels and “act right”. That time is really always, although, we can put it off forever seemingly, that time is always looming like the positively necessary reality that it is. Indeed, to act on the seeming reality of “putting it off” and not owning up to what it all comes down to is the biggest mistake we or anyone can make ultimately from the largest thing in existence getting messed up to closing a door or gate when we leave at the right time. There is not any reckoning but a realistic reckoning in reality at any level. “Straighten up and fly right” is not just a saying, it is a warning to stay conscious of the flight plan of reality however many course corrections and directional adjustments have to be made to that flight plan of reality to get to the right place and everything right in reality.
Indeed, consciousness is the powerful light of life shining when it is working, and the darkness is simply the absence of this reality. Everything is work, consciousness or willful fear and unconsciousness, the fantasy is that there is ease and freedom unearned. That is the biggest reality “rub” of all that cannot be eschewed until later or saved for later.
When I think about reality, in fact, when well lived, I think of a great effort that succeeds. Failure that is genuine is simply absence of this effort at all levels. To put it in another way: “There is not any free lunch, and we must make the effort to get the lunch even without physical cost, so in reality there are not any free lunches.” Indeed, everything is earned, nothing is unearned when really understood, thought about and realistically worked out, figured out, and everything.
So, the ultimate payer is the spectator watching life happen, and the ultimate benefit comes to the person who actually has the strength, “guts” and understanding to play the sport of life successfully. Success is shining the light, failure is darkness, that simple. The greater the success, the brighter the light. That direct. Take it or leave it, facts and principles speak for themselves through results anyway.
Look at the process and end, do not just look at one or the other, look at the whole thing as a principle and then make a judgement.
