If your desire is to awaken from the dream called life, then daily practice is essential. You will develop a natural vigilance and notice when you get lost and identified with your story.
Develop a daily practice in which you open yourself to what is arising and experience being in the moment, just as it is. Throughout the day notice when you are caught in a mind-stream of incessant thoughts, creating a story around past and future, losing touch with what is real and call your self back into the present moment.
Keep enough awareness in the body and notice if you begin to contract. As soon as you feel contraction allow yourself to open fully to whatever is arising. Presence and opening don’t require changing what is. Accept each moment. When you bring acceptance into each moment life naturally flows because there is no resistance.
