Panoramic Awareness is Always There

Book coverOften there is a perceived conflict between our ordinary life and sitting meditation. That comes from the inability to perceive the background of panoramic awareness that is present in our daily life. There is always an undercurrent of panoramic awareness that acts as guidance and is the source and inspiration for being skillful in daily life. There should be some acknowledgment that the space of awareness is there, just a fraction of a second of acknowledgment.
