IN THE CITY
guard the senses
repair broken awareness
use technology wisely
connect with the natural world.
Walking in city streets can be meditation.
Guard the gates of the senses.
Don't look everywhere. Attend to the need of the moment.
You can be mindful, reflective, and watchful if you decide to.
Life nowadays is broken up, jarring & discontinuous.
Find ways to repair the breaches as they happen.
keep reconstructing continuity & integrity.
Our devices connect us to others.
But too much cuts us off from our experience.
Sometimes take your eyes off screens
& experience real distances, depth & colour.
Nature is allowed no place in our protected life.
This is unbalanced and disharmonious.
Connect with the basic elements of experience.
