My Reality

My experience selects and constructs my reality.  I am the most important in that ... i am responsible for it ...
it is ultimately unique and rare, there being only just this one ...
and i am it
it is all i have, it is my universe.

sorry, guys, you just don't count as very much there ...

The realization of that was somewhat of a satori
and anybody who hasn't gotten it yet should give it a try.  

anyway, it is a good thought and i like it,
 
primarily because it feels true to me. 

yet there is another side to this coin. 
There is all of you ... you othernesses. 
all of you can say the same thing and i suspect
it will be just as true to you as it is to me. 

So can something that is not rare at all, be so very important?  
That is a paradox ... a double sided coin ...
it is at once ultimately unique and rare
and at the same time common and pervasive
and everywhere in all of us.
We are Great indeed !
