There are reverberations, echoes of fine sensations that can be felt in what might ordinarily be thought of as mundane, everyday actions: yawning, sneezing…and other body functions. And it is because these functions are so “everyday” we do not pay much attention to the subtle sensations that move deeply within.
The simple noticing and mindfulness of the moment can easily be waylaid by a mind that is hypnotically caught in its default patterns of “surface” living, disconnected from the subtle currents of the Life Force.
There are endless reverberations that can be felt in the simple yawn. The body knows how to move/adjust to the energetic wave of a yawn…or sneeze, etc. The invitation here is to tune into their ongoing vibrations…reverberations/echoes that continue on and on.
Why would you do this? What’s the big deal? The mind that is caught in its default pattern of its everyday world resists exploring the subtleties of what is suggested here…because it is a resonance/vibration that it is not accustomed to or familiar with.
The mind can be like a runaway train that moves along its tracks with a certain momentum…and to have it move in a different direction is resisted by that same momentum that it created over a lifetime.
Again, “Why would you do this (to connect with subtle vibrations)?” The offering here is that this simple effort can serve as a way to “short-circuit” the mind that is trapped on the runaway train, caught on rails of surface living, unconscious of its connection with the subtle Life Force.
By connecting even once with the subtle reverberations, there is an awakening to the underlying resonance, the “Hum” that imparts the experience of Bliss!
