Clicking ‘Enable Awareness’

In default mode we miss a lot. So we must click ‘enable awareness’ to leave our default settings.

In default mode we react. When awareness is enabled we respond.

In default mode we breathe. When awareness is enabled we breath deeply.

W.H. Auden once wrote, Choice of attention – to pay attention to this and ignore that – is to the inner life what choice of action is to the outer. In both cases man is responsible for his choice and must accept the consequences. As Ortega y Gasset said: “Tell me to what you pay attention, and I will tell you who you are.”

A payment to attention is an eternal investment with endless ramifications.
