We take the elevator for many reasons. We’re going up several stories in a building. We have a bum knee. We’re in a wheelchair or we’re assisting someone with a physical disability who needs to take the elevator. Many reasons to take the elevator.
But most of us take the elevator because that’s what we’ve always done, even if it’s up or down a floor or two. It’s comfortable, familiar, and we haven’t explored the alternative.
Let’s take a step back further: how does taking the elevator align with your values? Have you ever thought of that? Probably not; it’s kind of an inane question. Unless you say you value your health. How does the elevator help with that?
We take the proverbial elevator every single day. Every action, every decision we do with limited awareness. What if you were to spend a day in complete awareness, observant of every action and decision? Living in a state of consciousness.
I bet you’d learn some incredible things.
