The content of our awareness is most often defined by the endless thoughts that chase each other through the caverns of our minds. By our teenage years those thoughts have become so dense and pressing that unstoppable thinking seems our only possible reality.
Yet every once in a while, luck will seemingly at random choose an individual and endow them with a unexpected gift.
The gift at first impacts the velocity of thoughts, slowing and separating them into individual entities that might be examined and seen for what they truly are. And as the distance between those thoughts widens and each thought becomes less insistent, less demanding, a space forms in which inner awareness grows and joy awakens.
This inner transformation might last for a minute, an hour, or even a day. In some rare cases where the individual is particularly attentive, it can expand to encompass an entire lifetime. In all cases this interlude’s majesty and unbridled joy finds expression in the eyes, the face, the entire stance.
Rare as this state might be in this day and age, it remains our birthright.
