Hello there. Real life is there where our awareness is.
It's not by dragging allong the past or hidden away in the future.
It is showing it Self al the time in the present, NOW.
If you are prensent yourSelf, you will be aware of that what really is and that what is called an act.
Ask your Selfs this; are you an actor ore an author...?
It's you inside, always.
Know for sure, don't think or belief. Find out your Self...
