Direct versus Heuristic Experiencing
It is refreshing to experience an action (e.g. brushing teeth or observing traffic) by experiencing the action directly instead of using prototypical, heuristic, perceived or memorial images or feelings. In other words, be there there. Focus directly on your senses in a non-analytical fashion. Focus on being. Focus on being instead of doing. Too often we are busy doing and forget to be. Don't forget to smell the flowers.
