“What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.” –Plutarch

Ever wonder what is really real?

We wake up sometimes unconsciously operating like today will be an extension of the day before, with but undone to-dos of yesterday’s “reality” still ahead of us.

And it’s easy to fall prey to thinking that what we’re doing, how we’re doing it, and the limits of what is “really” possible for us is somewhat set…or, at most, stretchable to within a few degrees on the thermostat.

Rarely do we approach days, events, people or circumstances as if it were our first experience with any of them…with the whole spectrum of anything being possible. Rather, the new gets colored by the old, the past.

I recently heard a term which I found intriguing: Rapidly Changing Reality, or RCR for short.

What becomes possible when we’re being open and available to right now vs. overlaying the here and now with a past pattern of fixededness is a Rapidly Changing Reality.

Shift happens! And though we’re all used to the unplanned, “negative” stuff happening, are we as aware that there is just as much a chance of unplanned, “positive” stuff happening? (I put both in quotes because, as Shakespeare says, “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so”.)

Where can you drop the past and be an invitation and opening for an RCR in your hopes and dreams today?

Got reality?

“Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.” –Tupac Shakur
