becoming perceptive

Sometimes the world around us offers more than we can take in.  Our minds get overloaded so we shut off some of our sensors.  We become preoccupied with our  to-do lists, mental replaying of conversations, planning our multi-taking steps.

All of this means we no longer perceive what is right in front of us.  We become cut off from the world and from ourselves.   We can’t see the rose, much less stop to smell it.When we try to talk to others, they can’t hear us because they have the same personal interference we do.  They can’t listen.

We are rapidly becoming perceptually bereft and need to learn again how to notice…life.
