Living in this fast-paced city of New York, there are rare moments in a day where one is actually fully present, aware, and relaxed. When such moments occur, they seem almost to happen in spite of us.
Meditation creates the right inner climate, making us more open, sensitive, and available, so such experiences are not just something happening once in a while to us, but more our constant state, a continuum.
A Day Of Awareness is a day of nourishment, a time-out, an opportunity to come off the grid for a few hours, relax deeply, go inside ourselves and be acquainted with the space from where such spontaneous moments arise.
“When you are flowing with joy, blissfulness, that is the moment to be aware, but people do exactly the opposite. When they are happy who cares about awareness? And when they are in anguish, then certainly they start thinking it is time to be aware and get out of anguish. But nobody has ever been able to get out from anguish directly. First, one has to get out from ecstasy. If you can be aware of your joyful moments in the first place, the depression, the downs will not come. The door to get out is from ecstasy." Osho
