Water fascinates me. The moment space is provided it simply and naturally flows in to that space. It’s very nature is to permeate space and bring life. Try it. Dig an opening alongside some water and you’ll see it immediately flows in to that opening.
I think awareness, or becoming more conscious, is a bit like water. The moment an opening is provided it flows in to that space and brings life.
Would it be true to say that often the biggest hindrance to the growth of this awareness is what we’ve been taught over the years?
Gets you to thinking about the importance of “unlearning,” something far too frightening and threatening for so many. What if the second half of life had more to do with digging little spaces or trenches of “unlearning” to enable the inflow of deeper or even different insight and truth? There’s no telling what may gush in.
One thing I know is that in the past I’ve been far too full of opinions and certainty. I now find myself on an exciting journey of changing that.
