We can connect to a greater awareness wherever we are and whatever the time.
“Each thing we see hides something else we want to see.”*
I begin by being aware of my breathing.
Then I make myself aware of my feet on the ground – it doesn’t matter that it happens to be the floor of a bus.
I allow my senses to break in: sound, smell, touch, sight.
As I continue to be aware of my breathing, I feel the energy of my purpose coursing through me.
I let my mind wander where it will in connecting to all these things.
And what do I hope for.
This isn’t just a bus journey.
‘Your brain is most intelligent when you don’t instruct it on what to do – something people who take showers discover on occasion.**
Everyone else can see what you see and yet cannot see what you see.
‘The greatest poet hardly knows pettiness or triviality. If he breathes into any thing that was before thought small it dilates with grandeur and life of the universe.’^
All of us can do these things. As with all tools, or skills, I’m learning how to use them.
