I did go back and read the article again. Thank you for the suggestion. I guess what I get from the article is like you say once we can appreciate the story in our head is a reflection of the past we can be in reality, the present.
The article is about reflecting too much time in the past and we unconsiously do this. When the past is dead and gone, yet we still hang on to the reflection.
I just wondered what reality felt like when you don’t hang on to the reflection. I guess we then just get to choose whatever beliefs we want to put there now.
I just thought there was something real that wasn’t put together by thoughts.
Thank you for your time. Great suggestion to ask the author some questions.
