Open your eyes, look around - what do you see?
Clear the wax out of your ears, listen deeply - what do you hear?
Blow your nose, inhale through your nostrils - what do you smell?
Reach out with your fingers, touch something - what do you feel?
Stick your tongue out, feel the air - what do you taste?
Our senses allow us to experience the world - and we each do it differently.
What happens if one of our senses lessens or one is greater?
If we smell but are unable to see - are we actually able to understand?
If we hear a sound but are unable to touch what we hear - is it real?
What if our reality is different from someone or everyone else?
Each of us lives in this world - yet, we may perceive it so diversely?
What about our observations of the world? Surely we see things opposite of others.
Which is right…which is wrong?
Who makes the determination?
We live each day with questions…and sometimes we never get answers.
It is not up to you…or me…or him…or her…or them…to be right.
It is up to all of us to be wrong…
We can all be right…and yet, we can all be wrong.
Realizing that each perception or each experience is right…and wrong.
Does this make our reality unreal? Does it even matter?
