What I love about my hands
is they follow my commands.
Go meditate a while. Just watch
as you move your hand.
Wiggle a finger. Let it linger.
Trace the impulse that moves the finger.
When does it move? How?
Can you feel why does it move?
Great! Do it again.
Feel the thought, just a tick
before your hand actually moves.
It may be tiny, the impulse.
Easier to feel if you calm
the freight train of thought and just
look, listen and feel.
Does your brain move your hand?
That is only how far science can see.
If science is limited to the physical universe,
can science see beyond - imagine?
Beyond that physical universe
you will find - your mind.
Does your mind move your hand?
Many may think so. But why?
Can the mind decide and direct?
Sometimes, under stress, it does.
But right now, without stress,
just observing? And lifting a finger?
Ask who does it, not how this all works.
You can drive a car or fly a plane
safely, without knowing how it all works.
Just know that it works and how to control it.
Who or what is it then, that looks
at the mind's images and commands
it to direct your hands?
That's you. Nothing, but you.
Love, Light and Happy Handy Holidays
