Gather information and make sense of the world around you, even while responding automatically to the sensory information.
He went out, opened the door, and took the newspapers from the corridor. Wished someone jogging outside. Started reading the newspapers with a cup of coffee in his hands.
We are used to certain things. And we do them a kind of robotically as we are very much used to them. We know how to do it or when to do it. So we are just doing the same without looking around, without perceiving much from the surroundings.
There is a saying about one’s skill like ‘he can do it even while sleeping’. They are pointing to the expertise of that one. But will the environment be same always? What’s the point in doing something unconsciously, without having any control over the changed environment?
Even if the environment is not changed, do we really watch it consciously while doing the routine stuffs..?
She sits with her laptop the whole day. After a while, found her searching for the pen-drive everywhere in the home. Lately only she noticed that it was there upon her laptop table itself.
May be her eyes have seen that pen-stick lying just near to her. But she didn’t sense it at all. Or rather the impulse hasn’t reached her nervous system.
Be sensible and stop blaming on sense organs. Let the consciousness win over the sleepy mind.
Have you thought why our sense organs are not working in the way they are expected?
May be if that coherence happened with the senses, the world would have been crowded with Einsteins or Newtons. 😉
Many a times, we always have a “This is it” feeling, a gut instinct. And often it works out. We are unaware of the reasons behind our gut instincts. They are felt at once.
Instincts are not something in our brain; they are some feelings. In fact, instincts play tricks in our intelligent brain making us cautious on some unfamiliar things, making us conscious on the environment.
They can’t be called as some random thoughts; instead they are some scientific feelers. It’s actually, every cell in our body thinking alike and working together.
“List every time your gut instinct helped you.” I read somewhere like this. Sounds good, no?
So how do you exercise your intuitive senses to make it sharper?
How do you decide which gut instincts to believe, supporting your feelings with facts?
He says “If you are confident of doing it, please go ahead.”
If we are 100 % confident, then there is no question of doing it or not. Otherwise only, the suspicious mind starts to play its ‘win-lose’ game.
Now what could be the probable confidence %?
Well, I am redefining my hypothesis as,
“If you are 90 % confident of doing it, please go ahead”.
No, this is not enough.. It hides the underlying fact of chance of losing the game or the impact once it is lost.
So let me restate it with the alternate hypothesis,
“If you are ready to accept the 10 % risk of losing it, please go ahead.”
Hmm… This seems clearer for my senses to do the best planning.
Walking in nature is one of the natural prescriptions for better health.
Now what about walking barefooted..?
Why can’t we take a step back and synchronize with the mother earth by taking the shoes off at least for five minutes daily?
With the advancements in technology, we are missing the pampering of mother earth from where we all evolved. So why can’t we take a cautious move to feel her love..?
Walk barefooted on grass, sand or soil and feel the earth’s natural electric charge.
Don’t feel it to be a anti-culture trend. There is a scientific reason behind this. Walking barefoot means we have a connection with the earth and its magnetic field. And it seems better when our body comes in direct contact with the natural charges of earth.
You are guaranteed to stand out in a crowd while walking barefooted. But don’t be ashamed while running against technology. Definitely it will improve the physical fitness. Grounding enhances your awareness on the body and posture. And moreover there is a balancing of electrons happening while grounded, and it helps to increase our senses. You are much conscious and present at the moment as you have to watch where you are walking.
And finally don’t miss to wash your feet thoroughly after walking barefooted..;)
