Imperative

Riverwood Park Toms River, NJ

Go outside. Soften your eyes. Drop into the depth of your senses.

There is nothing backlit or bound here. There are no walls, no screens, and certainly no fluorescent lights.

Observe. Wait. Allow your mind to be quiet.

You will see patterns emerge.

The animal brain is wired to recognize patterns in the environment and in many ways is guided by instinct and learning to act according to those patterns. The human brain is an animal brain. And yet, we can observe these patterns in ourselves, in others, and in Nature. Consciousness enables us to observe, reflect, act with intention, and to develop and express will. It is this strange phenomenon that gives us the opportunity of choice.

Some patterns we understand, some we enjoy, some are constructive, and some appear to destroy. When we observe something we don’t understand, we call it chaos, something devoid of order. Chaos is merely a limitation in the perception of the observer to see the pattern. More often than not, it is the disorder of our own thoughts that colors the chaos we see around us.

One of the best ways to address the entropy of our mind is to go outside.

Be in Nature.

Go outside. Soften your eyes. Drop into the depth of your senses.
