Being in the moment in its fullness, mind and body
This often needs to be nearly reminded, exercised; especially in the reality commonly determined by whether routines or the tendency of conformism that comes from our passiveness and the knowledge of comfort.
For many only escapism to a completely different environment, as to travelling itself for instance, gives an excuse to the natural flow of events, to spontaneity, to getting in touch with the inner self. As if people subconsciously strived for extremes, naturally giving up to patterns, if questioning them on the daily basis than always too quietly, too carelessly.
When not opposing the lifestyle of routine to the outer world, we never let others know of our hidden yet common strive for more. Not doing so we often fail to find the companions to experience live with sensuously, and what follows, sometimes end up feeling misunderstood and alone with our curiosity, while actually not giving others enough chances to be gotten to know and to reveal the emotional aspirations.
Sensuous, as people once lived; in touch with their instincts and intuitions. Sensuous, with the creativity embraced as the basic, primitive human need, without the necessity to question its purpose as the society or education now make us; often picturing art as useless only because most of the time it cannot be measured in the economic productivity that capitalism demands; though it is exactly what makes us feel truly alive, and what allows the necessary discovery of the possibility to construct one’s reality subjectively.
