It's dark outside...I guess it's goodnight again

"Through our senses the world appears. Through our reactions we create delusions. Without reactions the world becomes clear."
Jack Kornfield

Yesterday I went to the movie "Manchurian Candidate". It was a very dark and disturbing movie. Movies are illusions that can create very real emotions. I came away deeply upset about our world being filled with people who are greedy for money, power and control. From that point on I saw everything in a negative and unpleasant light.
This fear gripped me. Then I felt helpless to do anything about the world. I was in total reaction to the movie.

Today I am free to feel anything. I feel liberated from yesterday's feeling of fear that had captured my imagination.

I ask what is reality?
What's real?
It's the same world today.
I am the same person I was yesterday.
Or am I?
I now have that movie in my memory.
It's one more illusion for me to draw from.
How could I have applied Jack Kornfield's comment to my emotions?
What would the world look like if it were clear?
