We get sucked into things, it consumes us and we are actually unconscious of anything around us, unaware of our breathing, our senses dulled, our appreciation of our environment switched off, not appreciating anything. This can be for a few moments, but rarely so short.
This isn’t a one-off thing, this is the unconscious life of our mind-obsessed existence, which consumes nearly all of our life every single day.
We can, of course, choose a different option. We can choose to be aware, awake, conscious, free from the mind, in this moment. Then we can experience the magic of life that is outside of our head.
