Is imagining an event living it?

Contribution by Esteban Rojas Nieto, Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain.

Imagine that living is not BEING alive. 

Imagine that SELF-AWARENESS is not BEING AWARE OF MYSELF.

Imagine that SELF-OBSERVATION is not OBSERVING MYSELF.

Imagine that I TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY RESPONSES is not TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY RESPONSES. 

Imagine that living is DREAMING that I AM alive.

Imagine that PAYING ATTENTION TO MYSELF is DREAMING THAT I AM PAYING ATTENTION TO MYSELF.

Imagine that SELF-OBSERVATION is DREAMING OF OBSERVING MYSELF.

Imagine that I TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY RESPONSES is DREAMING OF TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY RESPONSES.

BEING alive is FEELING THAT I AM ALIVE

PAYING ATTENTION TO MYSELF is FEELING PRESENT

OBSERVING MYSELF is FEELING PRESENT without JUDGING MYSELF

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY RESPONSES is FEELING THE CONSISTENCY OF THINKING, FEELING AND ACTING IN THE SAME DIRECTION.
