Just You & Your Consciousness

In the beginning we may be forced to face the moments of our experience with difficultly, and then we will grow to enjoy the spontaneous moments of the unexpected and the unknown.

Instead of pressing on the accelerator and absent-mindedly rushing through the details of life, we will be able to look around us at the way others live, the way people interact, and the way the sun rises and sets. We may be forced to look at the material poverty around us, and may be surprised by the simple and happy way in which others are living in their externally difficult situations.

In fact we may even realize that it is we from the developed world who are poor, and we may suddenly realize our own lack of spiritual happiness. In the end, it would just be myself and my consciousness looking at each other, without fabrication. The walking pilgrimage or Pad Yatra would become a free play of mind with nature.

When you are mindful of the detail, you notice the light come into the sky at sunrise, and how good the first sip of tea in the morning tastes. So find your own Pad Yatra, if you can – it will be the best workout that you can give your mind.
