I came across this thought by Alan Watts recently and found it resonating – loudly.

The self-conscious brain, like the self-conscious heart, is a disorder, and manifests itself in the acute feeling of separation between “I” and my experience. 

The brain can only assume its proper behaviour when consciousness is doing what it is designed for: Not writhing and whirling to get out of present experience, but being effortlessly aware of it.

This ought to battle my impatience, even if only temporarily…

PS. How to have a year that counts.
