Sensing -

I have mentioned that I have "homework" for the Sensory Awareness study group.

Our focus this week is on "Bathing."    I give you the words of Lee Klinger-Lesser.

    Explore what happens as you bathe and clean yourself.  Do you experience how you meet the water, soap, washcloth, towel, lotion or your own hand?  What is habitual and what comes new?  Are there parts of you that you ignore or treat differently?  Is there any experience of refreshment?

    At Zen Center, there is a verse that people often acknowledge before bathing:

          With all beings
          I wash body and mind
          Free from dust
          Pure and shining
          Within and without.

I have been noticing when I wash, that thinking of cleaning myself within and without is a very fun thing to do.  I like it, and suggest it respectfully to you!!
