To embrace the world, it is important to realize the world. Things are what they are, not for how we want them. Things happen for a reason, and sometimes for no reason at all. Such random chance can seem frightening to many so they dream up all kinds of illusions. Accidents can never happen in a perfect world, but we live in a far from perfect world and some accidents are staged. When we realize the world, we see things as they are, not as we may wish them to be. We have no illusions, just a vision of the truth, an embrace. We may not care for all we realize, but to gain wisdom requires a certain sacrifice, a removal of the proverbial rose colored sunglasses we may like to wear. To realize is to understand.
