“Really wish I could learn to always savour instead of just eating. And this is true for everything in life. But incredibly hard to remember. Too often I don’t really use my senses, just numbed to the now, with my mind on something else instead of the moment.
Staying in the moment for the most of the time is so hard. And you realize how much you miss out on experiencing in those glimmering and intense moments when you do. And trying to experience things as they are constantly. It is incredibly difficult to really do.
It’s the same thing with our vision. I remember how magical the world became when I praciticed painting, how I suddenly became so conscious of all the colours of our reality. It was like becoming a child again, experiencing everything for the first time. We lose so much by becoming used to things and getting complacent and not really sensing or appreciating them. Goes for people too.”
