Love is closer to us than we are to ourselves.

James: Some claim that we experience, at least consciously, only the surprising. A voice shouts our name from across a busy room, and we turn. A twinge in our leg, and we move it. The rest of the sensations, nearly all of them, are processed by the unconscious mind which has seen them a billion times before, and takes care of them without interrupting us. How loving! In meditation, over time, we become aware of things we otherwise might have missed. Often, with this, a reverence emerges for what is happening within and around us. This sit we are going to focus broadly on our experience, so we might realize how tenderly we are held.
