When we were young, we experienced the world through our senses. Having a connection to "All That Is" and everything magical was a given, not something that we needed to work so hard to achieve. Our life was "right now," not in past regrets or worrying about tomorrow's successes and failures. The sound of our loved one's laughter would leave us belly laughing even if we didn't know what was being laughed about, and we would cry just as easily. Shiny objects maintained a fascination that would often distract us from anything else going on.
As we age, we begin to think. We think about what our parents tell us, what we should or shouldn't do. We think about what we want and don't have and what our friends think we should be. We are always thinking and our minds and egos take over us to the point where often times we forget who are anymore. The butterfly that would fly by and bring a sense of joyful delight to us, is now insignificant as we rush through another overly busy day.
The national stress levels are on the rise and many more people suffer from anxiety driven illnesses than ever before. Even so, life is beautiful and we are surrounded by joy. Learning to re-develop our senses as our primary mode of awareness can put us back in connection with ourselves and the world around us. It can remind us to stay in the present moment and to really pay attention to how many wonderful things are available for us to experience right now, if only our mind would quit monkeying around and keeping us so wrapped up in its cerebral chaos. Our heart can learn to once again feel heard and our intuition can begin to return to us in abundance.
I invite you, dear reader, to take just one moment out of your day. Look around, as if for the first time. What do you see? Listen hard to the sounds of your world. What do you hear? Step away from the computer, the TV and the novel you are reading at lunch and breakfast and really taste your food. Caress your skin and wake up to the physical body that is under nourished of your attention and pleasure, yet still serves you with such dedication that you are alive and well enough to read this newsletter. Just for a moment, can you hear your heart's message to you?
I challenge you to return to a sensual way of life. Look at your loved one, friends, and coworkers as if for the very first time. Step back into the world of awareness and leave your mind to chatter to itself while you begin a new life of feeling with your heart and senses. Even if for one moment each day, your life will improve greatly.
