It amazes me how much we focus our energy and attention towards comfort. Our cell phones, handheld devices, and computers provide constant stimulation and distraction. We rarely allow ourselves time to do nothing, rest and recuperation. When we find ourselves surrounded by the beauty of nature, we can take time to breathe it in. But what about riding in the car or throughout our daily routine, what are we avoiding? The only thing that comes to mind is emotion. We are uncomfortable with whatever emotions are brewing below the surface. Perhaps we hold ourselves in the same pattern through this avoidance. If we allow ourselves to sit and breathe when nothing is going on, when we are bored, perhaps we could transmute those emotions and progress on to something new.
