“Our reality is spiritual. We are heart-based beings, and we get 80 years to go around the sun and do the best with what we got, and try to leave the world a better place than we found it.” @rainnwilson  

“The light that we all have. The love that we bring, and how we interact with one another. That’s our reality.” @rainnwilson
