In simple aware living, there’s a constant delight in wholeness as it presents itself in the particular, the immediate, the really small elemental arisings of living, of life happening only now: the clink of a cup, the sniffing of the ocean air tickling the nose, the impulse to write and post this little note inspired by reading the quote below; the soft hum of the kettle, the tummy gently girgling, the dancing light and shadow patterns playing across the flowers on the table. There’s an alert pausing to appreciate, to sniff, sip and savor the one and the many; to joyfully note here the real living beauty of life as it is, as it arises, here and now. To not know, or care to know, what’s next. To love richly.
“When there are no pretensions, no defences, no masks, there is a totally different kind of action, an action not based on previous accumulated experiences and knowledge, and therefore a mind that is always fresh, young and innocent. Innocency has no mask, no defence; it is totally vulnerable. Out of that innocency and vulnerability is an action which is an extraordinary thing, in which there is no sorrow, no pain, no pleasure, but an extraordinary sense of joy.”
PS: In aware living, there’s a clear seeing of the nonpersonal facts of this moment; there’s a sometimes clumsy and sometimes graceful but always undisturbed flowing as leaf, pond and river; there’s an aware response to facts that change like the wind, and the flow can seem bumpy with fast rapids. There’s a loving watching, an ample awareness that’s in fidelity – with and as – reality. Out of inner harmony, everyday wonder arises, yes. Have a wonderful day. 🙂
