Don’t read this if you’re not interested in cleaning out your consciousness.
Okay, thanks for sticking around.
Today, while walking into Panera Bread, I slightly smiled when I saw the storefront next door because I thought it said Exit Reality.
But alas, as you can see from the photo, it’s just a real estate agency named Exit Realty.
But before we continue, yes, I know I’m cheating on Starbucks.
Anyway… I’m bothering to bring this up because there’s an important point to be made about human suffering.
Most of human suffering is caused by the thinking mind. And the only way out of this suffering is too deny reality. Exit it. By accepting a new reality. The real reality.
Do I know what that looks like and how to get there?
And there’s only one thing you need to do in order to sense the real reality as well:
You just have to allow yourself to listen to me share with you what took me over twenty years to discover. It probably won’t be similar to anything you’ve ever heard before about existence.

With that, I was just getting a refill of iced coffee and I had to wait for a few moments for the half & half because an older gentleman in front of me was slowly adding it to his coffee.
He noticed me and made an effort to hurry it along.
I said, “Take your time. I’m in no rush at all.”
To which he said, without making eye contact because he was concentrating on securing a lid to his cup, “You’ll live a long time with that attitude.”
I answered, “I don’t know about that, but life is definitely too short to make someone feel rushed over milk.”
After I lightened my coffee, I added, “Okay man, have a good one.”
He said, this time with eye contact, “You too. God bless you.”
And that, right there, was more than enough reason to be alive for today.
I am so grateful for this lovely little exchange. And so grateful for anyone reading this who also finds it lovely.
take care, as in, really, take care,
