Reality is an internal perception not an external social norm or government regulation.
Don't confront what we are obsessed with, but the process of obsession itself.
Ah, confront the disease itself, not just the symptom,,,,,

Sure, I'll start right now.......Guess this is one good reason to practice aikido and incorporate it into our lives.....still.........
