Wait

Wait: the power of being alive to one’s surrounding environment without shifting its balance towards movement. The corollary form, that fits into it like a hand into a glove, is wake, the power of protecting life by remaining within its energy. It is a state of watchfulness. The remarkable trio, wait, wake and watch, embody specific forms of time and awareness, which could be called, variably, consciousness, or will. They are all dependent on stillness, and the willingness for sudden movement only when the spell of awareness breaks. If you’ve ever wondered how to see without relying on your eyes, try waiting in the dark, because it’s all in the dark, even when it’s in the light.
