I've been practicing awareness while doing my door knocking job and found it useful for making the time go quicker, relaxing me and promoting an alternative sense of awareness.
As I walked from door to door I was looking at all things in my field of vision and trying to absorb the details of their textures; looking at every tiny stone and blade of grass. Also, I tried to take in every sound and experience every smell. After two hours a strange thing happened. I started to feel as though my insides had been replaced with a field of stars and when I looked at things it was as if, some how, my mind was feeling right into and through them! This is completely new to me and was not expected but perhaps this is what many have also experienced?
