Blue Wonderment

Get lost in the eyes of a child and discover that you know very little in the grand scheme of life.

I practice moments of simplicity to remove the noise of knowledge, ideas, and necessity that easily crowds our daily lives. Take your hands off the computer mouse. Set your feet flat on the floor in front of you. Place your hands, palms up on your knees and focus your eyes on one, undisrupted place in front of you. (Try not to let it be an image that makes you wander.) Expel all the air you have in your lungs. Let it all out. All of the air, gone. Then simply sit up. That’s it. Just bring your spine to an easy and upright position. The air you need falls in. You don’t have to “take a breath” or “inhale”. The simplicity of being is that your body already wants to “be” so it knows to let the air fall into your lungs. Rest in that practice for anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes and be kind to yourself as you finish. Remind yourself that color and light are all around you effortlessly. Clarity comes from allowing yourself to see without prescribed understanding. Openness to not knowing will reveal new insight.
