Small reality is merely the objective state of what is.
BIG REALITY is the painful gap between what is and how I wish things would be.
BIG REALITY includes my foibles and vices… my infirmities and mortality… my disappointments, frustrations, procrastinations, regrets, shames, doubts, anxieties, heartbreaks, and sorrows. Such is life.
That said, it is in the courageous and creative confrontation with my sufferings and shortcomings that my virtues are revealed and my meaning discovered.
