They look pretty but not Chinese.

It is a shame if you are a sham.

Something looks strange.

For true recognition drop the act, be your self. Pretending to be something you are not is not a good idea. Because we can not take the credit, the applause go to the actor. We know we are pretending and we can not deceive our self. We can not accept a complement when we know we do not deserve it. We have to earn it to enjoy it.

Pick the poser.

 To be trusted we have to be trustworthy and honest. To be respected we must be respectable. To be loved we must give love. Our lives are a reflexion of ourself.

This is a genuine father on act.

This is a genuine father and son.

 All the acting, the splendid performance, is for nothing when we know we are not the hero. We know when we are a minor part of a performance, we need to get real.

You are all mixed up pretending.

You are all mixed up pretending.

 Our ego is the villian in the act, wanting those applause by fair means or foul. The ego is not really you and when you realise this the acting ends. Reality takes place, no more stage props are needed. The powder and paint, the fancy garments are not necessary. We can be our self and relax. All the costly stage props advertised to tempt our ego are unnecessary. We are free to make our own choices of what we need. Not what a greedy ego wants as a status symbol. 

No one is putting on an act when we go to the beach.

Being an actor is not an easy job. It is like being a politician. You have to learn your lines and be in the limelight under the public scrutiny. All the publicity and hype can be overwhelming. Just too much for the ego that now cries out for peace and quiet.

The ego can never be satisfied whether it gets what it wants or not, it is unsatisfied.

Mobile phone puts a hold on quiet time.

Mobile phone puts a hold on quiet time.

 We need quiet time to appreciate the beauty of reality, to clear our mind of worrying thoughts that disrupt our contentment. Time to chew on wholesome words and savour them. If they are greedily gobbled down their nourishment is lost.

This is more like it.

This is more like it.

 Slow down, life is not an action movie full of turbulence. With understanding it can be an enjoyable, true love story. Not an unreal, hectic TV romance. That is not what we need, we need the real thing. It is no good acting, you have to honestly carry out those noble deeds. That is what is needed to get true joy in life.
