In Reality

By day he floats on the lake among white swans, perfect in his reflection, but at night he’s bumping into walls and peeing on his own bare feet just the same as the rest of us.

  1. We all think we are the infallible and perfect beings that we are. In some sense it's true. But reality is we came to this world hobbling. And that's probably why we yell our lungs out the moment we emerge from our mother's uterus. It's not fair that we constantly have to struggle with right and wrong, good and evil in a world where duality births conflict and suffering even in the midst of so much beauty and goodness. What's it all about Alfie?
