We are prone to think that we have to move away to get things in perspective and it is true: this allows us to have an overall outlook. When we get away from a place (literal and metaphorically) we can see new aspects that before went unnoticed. But there is another way to understand life and it consist in staying close to what is happening to us.
This may seem complicated because demands observing something that we don´t know what can mean or that we don´t want even to see, but it can be also interesting.
We just stand still and wait and wait: we pay attention and look at things even when we feel prompted to run away, even when we feel bored or sceptic... as long as we feel safe, we dwell in that stillness and take up the reality of things.
Suddenly, where only blur existed just a moment ago, a whole new universe of links, explanations or details starts to appear.
...And a new comprehension of things that comes from the core of existence (from the tiniest to the biggest, from uniqueness to globality, from everydayness to eternity...) captures us.
PS: I am madly busy due to the end of academic course. Apart from this, I have started a challenge with a couple of friends that involves taking (and sharing) a photo per day along a whole month following some guidelines, I am doing it only via facebook because I didn´t want to pressure myself into posting daily on this blog. However, along the development of that project I´ve been feeling that I should share here some of the things I have been written. This is the photo and the text corresponding to day 12.
Much Love dear friends,
