One Great Point Of Ignorance that I see from day to day in the world bustling about in our country and I am sure in the world at large is thinking that anything of value can be understood quickly or without much effort.
However the only way to engage a study so large and vast as the body/mind in rest and in motion is a day by day, moment by moment engagement with arts that engage a gentle unfolding of your own life and experience of living. To pay attention is no easy feat! Intelligence viewing intelligence is a cultivavted skill that take time and effort.That is the definition of Kung Fu.
If you have gotten to a place where you are tired of being drug around by all of the myriads of distractions, emotions, addictions, and the feeling that life is boring and tedious, then it is time to learn to pay attention. Not just for an hour, not just for a day, week, month or year but for the rest of your life.
That is what it means to form a path of study. The simplest way to start on this path is a daily meditation. Pick one and stick with it. Keep it simple. Then try and revisit that practice throughout your day. Remember this is a journey, just because it is hard, uncomfortable, and annoying at first just means that you have only started to engage a different way of being.
Also remember that there is no finish line,it is a process of paying attention, of waking up, that you can only engage you cannot hold. Slowly and surely wonder will start to emerge, creeping in from every corner of your existence, from your own breath, your own body/mind/, your relationships, your work, and with each passing moment. Does that mean everything will be enjoyable. No! But it will be filled with wonder even when it sucks!
