interests me most is how do I get to a status of concentrated
aimlessness from an often rushed, restless, purposeful state when
I simply repeat thoughts and actions often unchallenged.
I am challenged to do things in a big freedom of mind. With a feeling to have time in abundance. Like in a child's summer, in Laumer's barn climb up the beams and jump down into fragrance. Again and again into fragrance. To widen my perception. When the traffic lights force me to stop even though I am late and allows me on my way home to notice the mice population on the green stripe next to the road for the first time.
Or i walk, just walk "so fuer mich hin und nichts zu suchen, das ist mein Sinn" (just for my self and not to look for something - that's my intention) [ after Johann Wolfgang von Goethe], and an idea, a solution an answer appears out of the blue for a long carried around question.
I can create conditions for this state but not create the state itself.
Helpfully appears to me to brake.
