Pause for a moment.
Don’t try and be “spiritual”.
Don’t seek any particular state or feeling.
Just become aware
of the very ordinary moment.
Drench it with awareness.
Infuse it with curiosity.
If it’s uncomfortable,
let it be uncomfortable.
If it’s heavy, let it be heavy.
If it’s boring, let it be boring.
Leave the moment fully untouched,
and let it touch you.
Awaken to the
sacred ordinariness of things...
