just being

Usually I am just doing.  Dipping under the radar of doing accesses a place within me that is peaceful, timeless, and emotionally removed (not remote!).  This place permits me to observe more objectively without the emotional entanglement, and it lets me feel, hear, taste, smell, and see without the mental word chatter that permeates my mind. It is difficult to even achieve seconds of this peace of mind, but boy is it worthwhile.
