Humankind cannot bear very much reality


I’m reading poetry, which I do when I’m stressed. Stressed is desserts spelt backwards. Lemon tart is a dessert. I thought I’d move on from this in the chain of thoughts but now I just really want lemon tart.

Jokes aside, I love Eliot. “Humankind cannot bear very much reality” – being authentic isn’t easy. Accepting yourself, knowing yourself – in some moments all we can do is admit that really we know very little. I’ve written before about constructionism; we have the liberty and ability now to construct new realities that are more to our liking, but always there is the challenge of remaining authentic and loyal to our truths.
