You know that saying that you don’t know what you don’t know? It’s true…and it’s also true that you don’t see what you don’t see. Whether your attention is focused on your thoughts or, as is often the case these days, the small screen in your hand, it’s probably not as engaged as it could be with the simple fact of your surroundings. What kind of magic might you missing by looking without seeing, hearing without listening, doing without just being now and then? There are opportunities to be surprised, delighted, and frankly just to smile for a second all around you every day. Look up, check in, and take notice – no wand or special skills of illusion required. All you need, as always, are your intention, your attention, and your breath.
