Every relationship improves when we improve our relationship with ourselves. And there is a relationship here. There is a profound space between our unchanging awareness – what some contemplatives call our “True Self” – and our ever-changing thoughts and feelings and body sensations. In this meditation, we use our imaginations to open up that space. We practice inhabiting our own body-minds as a temporary visitor. How does it feel to move these fingers, to breathe this air, to watch this strange weather pattern of thinking? And what happens when, from this more spacious and playful perspective, we explore our relationship to others? In this storyline, you’ve been waiting lifetimes for the opportunity.
Being human takes practice.
