… or in parallel with reality others experience, is an interesting concept worth exploring. It inspires to do things that someone weighted with bad news, traumas, sadness, would never attempt because – why bother? Robert Greene, the best selling author of The Daily Laws: 366 Meditations on Power, Seduction, Mastery, Strategy, and Human Nature, and other books, and survivor of a massive stroke, said recently:

We are focused on finding…

… that perfect love, a new job, best places to live… But rarely it strikes us that we should be creating all those things, just to our likings, instead. Why not?! Thus the parallel reality mentioned before, above surrounding us clouds, not in terms of escaping [what others think will catch up with us], but achieving what other states of our mind will self-limit. Life above the clouds sounds perfect to me – it puts me in charge and freedom position, stirring my creative mind and keeping me young(er) at will.
