Heed what “It Is Not” if you want to distinguish “What It Is”.

Poor choice

This is it, and that is not it.

What it´s not, it is, and what you think it is, is not.

Accept whatever it is

I cannot stress enough the importance of “what it is just now”.

You cannot come further, unless you accept and embrace wholeheartedly “what is”, as the future is nothing but a constant reiteration of “what is.”
