Nice, Or Realistic?
Some words have a surprising meaning.
Nice: origin – Middle English, from Latin nescius ‘ignorant’, from nescire ‘not know’.
Realistic: Representing things in a way that is accurate and true to life.
Being ‘nice’ to one another maintains the status quo of current social values. It’s nice to be nice, but there comes a point when we think, “Really? Is this what life is all about?” We’re actually telling one another how nice our prison is, and how nice our limited view of life is. We pretend all is well, but there comes a time in life when we think, “No it’s not. It’s all pretend – the hypocrisy of playing a part.”
This is where we become at odds with others … well, to be exact, the entirety of humanity 😀
We may not intend to make others feel uncomfortable, but being realistic can’t help but make them feel uncomfortable when they only value what they’ve been told, and never trust their own perception.
How many people talk about their true reality?
How many people believe in narratives?
How many people do not know that they are regarded as just biochemical algorithms – a set of rules – and that data controls their future?
When we clear our mind of being data-driven,
we become free of algorithms.
Pure consciousness is only governed by compassion.

“Nirmanakaya is the fully awakened state of being in the world. Its action is like the moon reflecting in a hundred bowls of water. The moon has no desire to reflect, but that is its nature. This state is dealing with the earth with ultimate simplicity, transcending following the example of anyone. It is the state of “total flop” or “old dog”. You destroy whatever needs to be destroyed, you subdue whatever needs to to subdued, and you care for whatever needs your care.”
