to bring me to this moment.

any role in any of the events of my life
is entirely without fault.

in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.

pure water forms pure ice - dirty water forms dirty ice.

before they manifest into physical reality,
than to try to cut the cancerous impurities from solid reality
after you have manifested your thoughts into physical form.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Reality is what you believe it to be.
