‘Wakefulness’

by meditative - March 4th, 2015

‘Awake’, we come to remember to take pause to be in this moment- to routinely allow a calm and relaxed composure to wash over our entire being as we simply witness our own accessibility to be fully present.

In this space of awareness we come to notice things as they are- as they are arising without indulging- without becoming what we are simply witnessing- thoughts, feelings, and/or sensations. To observe in this way can help us to break down our ‘automaticity’- our reactionary tendencies and habits to get carried away by what we are experiencing within. With practice, this skillfulness in observation can bring us more freedom and choices to discerningly respond with greater wisdom and care.
