We respond to sounds and forms all the time: the phone rings, the baby cries, bills are due. But what is really moving us? It can be painful to see that often, we are just going through the motions, or waiting for our real life to finally begin. Practice can unlock another way to move through our lives-one that allows us to choose to be present for every moment.
