Are The Stories We Tell Reality?

Telling Stories

We are storytellers — that’s how we make sense of our lives and give them meaning. Stories are always an overlay, an interpretation of what is. They enable us to accomplish great things, but can also get us in trouble if we mistake the stories for reality.

Experiencing Reality

Reality can’t be pinned down in words, no matter how fine a story we spin — reality can only be experienced directly.
