Poke Your Head into a Bigger Universe


Contemplative spirituality might suggest becoming more "inner"--being aware of all that's happening inside your consciousness.

But it actually is meant to go just the other way--towards being so present to the moment at hand that nothing gets past you, that you notice people and a world that you otherwise certainly would have missed. Great souls like David Foster Wallace have thought deeply about the opportunity that's here to find joy, even in stressful times, as we enter into a much bigger universe--by way of noticing other people--than we'd been aware of. Dave Schmelzer will tell some vivid stories along these lines.
