Here is a little story to share.
Today morning while I was doing breathing exercise, I noticed something. There was a big cat like creature in a balcony just in front of my building. I had never seen it. I think the owner wanted his cat to give an outdoor feeling, and that’s why it was there with a big open cage like structure kept on it’s left side. It was moving, and resting and moving again in that small area.
I was enjoying it’s little moves until I saw a small bird (I assume it was Harris’s sparrow) which flew and sat on the railing of balcony. Most probably it was looking for some food, and found it there without realizing that now it was a ‘food’ for someone else! The cat started moving quietly, a little left, a little right with it’s eyes on the sparrow. I tell you I was scared. I did not want anything bad to happen but being too far, there wasn’t much I could do!
Suddenly, something incredible happened.
But along with all these emotions there was something more. I was in a ‘no mind’ zone, very much ”present’ and ‘into’ the reality. As if a part of my existence was lying there, unprotected. I had experienced all my emotions ‘without trying to control them’. I was with them, not resisting anything, not judging anything.
In short, I was aware that ‘I was aware’.
- How does it feel when it rains and you are outside enjoying the drops, feeling it on your body?
- Does it make you feel alive when you smell the wet soil? Don’t you want to soak it all?
- What happens when you see the majestic beauty of a waterfall, completely bringing your attention into the moment?
No wonder it heals what ails us……
Love and peace always,
