Build your relationships first….then your dentistry. ~ Bob Barkley

Reality Check

Posted on

The concept of reality represents one of life’s great  paradoxes, because we tend to think of our reality as being universal, while at the same time experiencing it in a our own unique way. Additionally, we cannot fully understand our experience by ourself; we cannot experience our experience fully by ourselves because reality must be grounded in perspective, and perspective is impossible without experiencing life with -and around-others.

That is why we can not learn how to optimally live life from a book, class, video, or even through others telling us how. We have to live it WITH others. We have to experience the struggles, joys, victories and defeats, and by so doing – experience meaning – and through meaning, perspective.

It is my belief that reality must also be reflected back to us by its source, its Creator, and only through His love reflected back to us that we can experience true reality. Consequently, we cannot know the truth about the world until we know that God loves us.

And that I believe, is why WORSHIP is in the Cross of Life that Dr. Pankey shared with us, because reality requires worship – worship not of what we have created individually or collectively, but of Him.
