Imagine what you are looking for is looking right at you…but you can’t see it.
How do you make the invisible visible? •Pause. •Close your eyes and open into a spacious mindset. •Soften your body with the energy of kindness. •Gently open your eyes •View the world with the fresh eyes of Beginners Mind.
The memories flood through: Study Buddies whispering across the table. Unknown authors randomly discovered on shelves. Poems and essays vibrating new ways of thinking. The wisdom of Dante and Socrates beckoning the timelessness of life.
Now decades later With fresh eyes and little time left I am back.
•Living in Beginners Mind go to your favorite café when it’s noisy •Follow your body’s lead on where to sit •Order your favorites •Waiting…relax and deepen into the spaciousness where judgements, resentments and expectations do not live •Breathe into the sounds around you
*Let the sounds organize themselves into a symphony •Listen for the melody. The rhythmic beat. The harmonics. •Listen as you would to Yo-Yo Ma, Keith Jarrett or Chick Correa •Let yourself be inspired by the transformation •What is alive in you?
