Learning from the peacocks. They are one of the more sensitive creatures on my walks that are within view. I wonder if I can ever be still enough not to disturb them?
Tender grass shoots emerging from the soil, the start of a fire from two sticks rubbing together, or--the mystery. It feels like a new beginning to start navigating with this inner sense in all aspects of my daily life--the dot construction is becoming an unbroken line. How can one not be in awe of the mystery? It feels like something never to be taken for granted, but to be quietly tended to with reverence for the mystery.
Deconstructing the perceived safety barrier on a bigger scale which allows movement without edges. The perfect perception walk is emerging. A three hour loop that lets me start with the elephant people going to work, the bottle collectors on foot, the fellow walkers, the road crews sweeping and prepping the construction, up the hill to nature with the occasional orange robbed beings, a few motorcycles, buses, cars, and down the hill through Jaipur's morning bustle of street sweepers, cows grazing on garbage piles, recycle collectors rummaging through the piles too, everyone driving fast, and so on.
Reading more about religions, spiritual teachers, and so on. Fascinating but none of this would have enticed me probably, because of my question mark around two-leggeds. Should I be surprised that my journey has lead me to what I would naturally avoid? Giggle. My interest has been and continues to be simple and single-pointed on inner peace. Maybe there will be a day I can blend with the peacocks? I plan to spend some time sitting with them, taking what I have learned from the ashram, and examining what happens. Non-human animals are still very pure.
