Jolt

Often we have things that occur, situations that arise, that jolt us into reality. Like we’ve been suddenly awoken from a deep sleep, startled, shaken.

These moments are when we feel surreal. But it is these very moments that are when we are actually fully conscious, and as they are so few, that is why we feel they are strange.

Like sudden amazing beauty in nature, a birth, or something shocking like a car crash or a death.

The thing is if we focus on being present and we experience each moment, we do not have to rely on a jolt to wake us up.
