We overlook so much of life, of ourselves

If we were to describe the contents of this room, what vital necessity (necessities) would we miss?
.
.
The prominent things, objects catch our attention immediately and register their importance.
.
.
When we listen to a song we notice the melody, the words, the cadence.
.
.
What we take for granted or miss are the spaces in between the notes.
.
.
In our room we overlook the empty spaces between the furniture, the objects.
.
.
Incredibly, we miss that which illuminates our ability to see anything, the light.
.
.
With our minds we see and give great attention to thoughts and emotions, missing our inner silence, our inner being, our souls.
.
.
We feel something is lacking, we feel we are not good enough, even when a complete, whole, confident being exists inside.
.
.
We overlook our essence for impermanent thought and judgement.
.
.
We need only to get out of our head and enter our hearts.
.
.
The pictures are of the same room. That which we overlook is a necessity to see anything but darkness.

    This really makes you ‘think’, which is a good thing. Beautiful.

    It is hard to describe what we cannot see … only by the enlightenment can i see … ahhhh yes the music , without the spaces inbetween it would be but a jumbled mess of sounds and noise, … … it is the spaces in between that make it music, … … without the spaces it is not music … … … yes, we overlook the spaces in between, because we cannot hear them, … we over look what we cannot hear, … … … and if we cannot speak, noone can hear her … … … and so sometimes the little one that cannot speak … … needs recognition, and a way to be heard … … … and here, I am stating to write her inner pain, and hear what she is saying, to understand her inner needs and recognize that she too needs to cross the bridge of healing … … … which is what brought me too this site, … … … it is as if I now have my own “grasshopper” working to see the dark matter that was left behind that at the beginning of my personal big bang … … … in between the spaces of working on her behalf I am doing The Breathing Exercise Marty has taught me, and some other exercises I have learnt upon this path … I am trying to eat a very healthy diet, drink a lot of water, and I do need to address some exercise (for me that is walking, as I am now 69) … thankyou for reading my post … travel well …
