Digging Deep

Lately, I’ve been going through my days on the surface, just kind of skimming along without any real connection to what I’m doing. The content hasn’t changed, I still ride my bike, walk the dogs, work. But I do all of this not truly aware of what I’m doing, without focus and without care. I haven’t walked in the woods for weeks now. I’m starting again to live without being truly conscious.

This is something that I think happens to most of us. Living without awareness is the normal state in western culture (this being the only culture I know anything about), so to live purposefully takes practice and constant work. It’s bloody easy to fall off the wagon and let the chattering bones of life dominate over what should be the meat of us. We live inside out.

I need to resume walking quietly in the woods, every day. I need to resume giving thanks with heart, every day. I need to push aside our world of distractions and really dig deep into this work that embodies real purpose, every day.
