I am often stretching myself to open to concepts that seem larger than my human brain can fully understand at the moment. Because of this, I have had to become conscious about actually integrating what I learn “in theory” into my own experience and then actually put it into practice in my life. If I skip this step, it can start to feel like what I am studying is separate from “real life.”
My favorite thing about sitting on the beach is looking out to where the sea meets the sky. Both, are parts of our world filled with so much yet to be explored. My sight is filled with what has yet to be discovered.
I teach meditation in a city with a high homeless population. I drive by homeless people almost every day. On the way home tonight I noticed a couple on the side of the road who were obviously without a home. Oddly, I didn’t notice any homeless people on my way to class. They must have been there but I was not. I was somewhere else off in my mind.
