“The body is a sensing instrument of consciousness. Without the body and the mind, the trees couldn’t see themselves. Usually we think that we are looking at a tree, but the tree is looking at itself through us. Without this instrument, the tree doesn’t get to see itself. We are sensing instruments of the divine.” Adyashanti in The Impact of Awakening
Fall reminds us with its beauty how incredibly blessed we are to be in a body and mind, as a “sensing instrument of the divine.” Just to be alive in this form is a miracle – no matter the shape, size or color. I wish everyone could see that.
