“You are not required to act in any way that sacrifices your wish to grow in spiritual strength. For example, you are not required to support the weakness of another person. Also, you are not required to relieve the anxiety of anyone whose anxiety is caused by his preference for delusion over reality.”
– Vernon Howard
“NOTE: An evening at the theatre. It occurred to me that there is something weird about someone wanting to be someone else. And even more so about someone sitting down for a couple of hours to look at someone they don’t know, pretending to be someone else, talking to someone who is also pretending to be someone else. A dialogue, furthermore, invented by somebody who imagined they were pretending to be each of these in turn.”
– Alan Fletcher

Tis a garden of illusion in which we live, indeed, indeed! For a moment, I thought it was you who was at the theater and making those observations. But, no, it was but Alan pretending to be Alan.
Alan’s words painted my mind very nicely there, or not nicely, if one might be offended by such observations. I don’t know Alan, even well enough to pretend to be him.
Thinking of the construction person who spoke to me and played and tasted, spat , and laughingly ate one of those mystery fruits. 🙂
Someone spat in your presence? LOL!
Was laughing at my dismay at unknown fruit tasting! He ate some, made dramatic sick noises and spat it out. Said OMG I’m gonna dieeeee and then threw in the entire fruit!
It was a backward Adam and Eve event!
