Present Sensations

March 19th, 2012 · No Comments

Turn toward, rest into, be with

Sensations

Sensations are the present, period.

Some ever present sensations are:

Gravity
Center
Connection
Effortlessness
Transformation
Precision

Practice noticing and turning toward each sensation of the present

This moment is its sensations. Breath, sense, turn toward, stay with…

Pushing past and turning away are sensations and come from sensations.
