Barry Stock spoke to me of awareness. How often am I aware of the beauty that is around me? How often am I aware of where I am in space, let alone what I am doing, thinking, feeling? Glimpses of awareness show me where I am or where I am not.
I may have great aspirations, but what of my actions? My thoughts? My words?
As the Guitar Craft aphorism so aptly states - we begin again constantly. Grateful for the reminders to stop & notice; for the practices that guide this; and for the practitioners that strengthen & support all of us.
