#BlogElul 16: Understand

Understand. Under stand. Stand under.


Sometimes when I am willing not to understand, when I let go of the need to make sense of things, when my mind rests and I feel my feet on the ground, when I sit up straighter and find a sense of alignment, when I close my eyes and listen, when I notice the rhythm of my breath, when I breathe a little more deeply, when I feel the sensations in my body, when I let images flow by, when I let thoughts be as fleeting as the late summer breeze...

In those moments, I experience what is under my standing, and what I am standing under.
