I have found this analogy helpful today...
The contemplative journey is a bit like a dance.
Being is our dance partner who is always there to lead when we consent.
Lots of things pull us away from the dance - mostly thoughts, feelings, and distractions of all kinds.
You can enter the dance no matter where you are, or what you are doing.
Allow yourself to be led into simple, spacious awareness.
