Remembering to see

Mornings seem easiest for me here-lately
I’m still addicted to coffee-(I can’t change everything at once)
still love that morning surge of adrenaline-that it gives me
a surge of curiosity and enthusiasm for learning new things
there are so many things I want to learn-I’m overwhelmed
I try not to look at the clock hands ticking away
I try to live in the moment and not reduce time to years and eons in my mind
not easy for me-I’ve always been an abstract-concept thinker
reducing reality to patterns that seem to make some sort of logical sense
but only make me more neurotic & illogical
floating around in some space time realm
I’m trying to work more with perception lately
versus conception
it does not come natural
how many years have I been living in this realm of ideas-
not even really seeing the details in front of my face-
I thought about this the other day when I was aimlessly wandering outdoors
I kept reminding myself-
look at the animal tracks in the snow,
examine the milkweed pod
(what do the seeds look like)
look at the way the current of the river swirls around the ice.
It took a lot of reminders
But coming out of the separate and into the whole
out of the dream and into the moment
seeing what is in front of me-is fascinating
it is a curiosity that we are even here spinning on this globe
surrounded by seemingly endless galaxies
it is a curiosity that we even exist
and that we are surrounded by so much consciousness
each of us carrying and sharing an essence that lives within us
I need to keep reminding myself to look out and see
when I remember this-I’ve discovered I feel complete
no longer lonely, neurotic, fractured in my mental isolation
I keep reminding myself of this-
it is more then a practice,
recognizing existence is a paradox made simple
living in harmony with the moment
I keep reminding myself of this-
