I have had this course for about five days. Usually I dive right into a course when I receive it, but this one I have taken slowly because I feel that it touches deep places in me. It feels like an initiation into a realm which is holy. I need to take off my shoes (everyday person) because I stand on holy ground.
Yesterday, I went for my usual walk at the lake and decided to practice soft gazing. I became aware of the whole landscape and felt part of it. It was as if I was seeing with my chest/heart area.
