Freezing to death slowly, without realizing... Looking at the blinding white snow by forcing our eye lids open , not even realizing the numbing sensation of your fingertips and toes ... Like a tree branch covered with a thin layer of ice , in between chills, as though you are
slipping into a sweet dream .
In the chaos of daily life how many of us really live in total AWARENESS ? Do we usually say “oh finally this day is over!” when we lay in bed, while our eyes shield our souls with a fake curtain?
When was the last time you stayed up and watched the sun rise on top of a hill while admiring how generous nature is to you?
Have you ever taken off your shoes and tried to remain in balance on the rocks in a freezing cold sea?
Do you pause long enough to stare into street dog’s eyes while gently touching his head.
