The marvel that is attention never ceases to amaze me.
Do I have my own attention or would it be more correct to say that I participate in a wider attention which enters all sentient beings? When I am attentive to another, attention seems to tap them on the shoulder and we connect. When attention enters my seeing, I also feel seen as if entering into communication with what is perceived.
Am I encapsulated in my own world, marshalling with effort my own attention on the world around me? Or do I move through a timeless sea of attention, something that surrounds and pervades the universe, connecting instantly to those for whom I am intended?
