Come to your senses

Falling asleep is easy.  Notice how many people are sleepwalking through life. Have you ever had the feeling that anyone is falling awake? Are you connected with yourself, your passion, your destiny? Who is asking this question? Who is answering it?

Many people have the impression their life is splitting apart.  Notice your own inner conflict? You may think you want one thing while you are doing another. If you work in one place, you may wish to work somewhere else or shift focus to start a business. If you are involved in one relationship, you may wish to be involved in another.

If you feel restless, think you want to go "there" while part of you is here, this is an invitation to recognize the nature of overthinking. If you have a body, a mind and especially if you have a cell phone to interrupt you, why not come to your senses?

Notice five familiar senses are sending you messages. The non-conceptual sixth sense is also active. Which ones do you hear and overlook? Senses reveal everything.  The mind judges or shifts focus from what no longer matters. Notice the focus of your attention.  How do you feel about it? What does this reveal about wakefulness? and tainted views?

Notice the diversions in your life of wants, fear, doubt and pain. Notice when you feel suppressed, repressed, or like you are running from something. How many times during the day do you interrupt yourself in thought and speech? Forget what matters?

Everything invites you to ponder what it means to be here in this moment.  Listen with your bones, your organs, your flesh and your whole being. Reflect on your life with an open heart and pure compassion. Notice what you see deep within. The distinct possibility exists you are re-introducing yourself to who you truly are. When not grounded by thoughts, time and space, then what happens to 'you?' Next time you are in the shower, notice who or what is in there with you. Notice the mind wanders away from the refreshing water and lather. Next time you are in public transit, notice the mind churning. Areyou asleep while awake? What sort of trail are 'you' leaving?

Do this simple exercise: be aware of the breath.  This is mindfulness or non-judgmental awareness.  It invites us to be aware of what is fundamental in life rather than on what the mind thinks is urgent.  Notice thoughts that arise as the mind prompts you run on an endless treadmill.  Notice the mind distracts you from the breath and just living.

Ever had the experience that you can see without seeing? Its like something is in front of you but you only notice it when you are ready. Something knows where you came from before you were born and observes everything all the time. We also only see and hear what we are willing to accept. Meditation allows mindfulness to arise. It enables you to cultivate intimacy with what is ordinary. Stop taking what comes naturally for granted.

How often are you true to yourself? The problem is not with doing anything in particular, its with the personal pronouns you use to identify with something you think has virtue. It is not what we do that matters but being aware of it and allowing ourselves to feel deeply. Allow yourself to be at home in all of the senses. Bring the mind home to awareness and refine your capacity to see things as they are. The challenge is to atop doing all that gets in the way. This is advanced training in the art of living.

"Today like everyday we awaken empty and scared." - Rumi

Thank you for the questioning. I was just praying about much of what you mention here. The awakening. The mindfulness. I realized more recently that there are many areas in my own life that I am still sleep walking. That I need to wake up and become conscious. So my prayers have been of that nature. No surprise that many of these insights have come on my mat in meditation or shortly after in dream state. thanks for sharing.

Keya, as questions arise, the answers are also available. You simply interpret them based on state of mind. State of being is the state of knowing without a doubt. Listen to this prayer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDa2NC2--lM

Hi Liara .. thank you - I am gathering myself up, coming to my senses (as you title the post), utilise my thoughts and feelings and senses, so I fully acknowledge where I am. Advanced training in the art of living - such a good phrase .. cheers Hilary

Hilary, when you focus your attention on something, you activate a vibration within you. This is a basic vision or structure that fills in. Look at your point of attraction. You move through daily life and have emotional response toward certain things, people and conditions. Each emotion is a sign of what kind of experience is manifesting for you. You have more control over this than you are currently exercising. As you observe and feel, the things that happen around and within you are a vibrational match. Be more aware of what your emotions are telling you. Take control of what you attract.
