Bare Bones

Every step we take we should be aware, aware of everything, aware of our surroundings. Everything that we do sir has its own meaning, its own magic. Seemingly mundane things like the making of a bed, the washing of a dish, the drinking of a cup of tea all have the potential to unlock our awareness. It is these ‘bare bones’ experiences that are the basis of enlightenment in our lives, not expensive retreats that may be full of charlatans. We are often like race horses with blinders on. We mistake tunnel vision for focus. Let your camera get out of focus, color outside the lines, miss your intended train stop.
