The true and the false

So then, how to tell the difference between the true and the false, the real and the unreal? Whatever has a beginning and an end is false. All else is true. From A Course in Miracles: “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.”

The fool

In a world of compete/succeed/control/win/build/plan/work/accumulate, the wise man seems not to exist (from Latin existere meaning ‘stand out’). Lao Tzu wrote:

Others are so competent and confident,
Whereas I am stupid,
Careless as the sea
Drifting without aim.
