COMMON TO ALL CREATURES AND PEOPLE OF ALL CULTURES
Focusing is useful, practical and natural with anything you want. Focusing got us out of the mud and cold and hunger. And focusing is indispensible for achieving any higher goal in life. But, ...
Humans have forgotten the panoramic mode. The original practical use of panoramic sensing is obsolete and redundant. Our ancestors fears and daily insecurity have been overcome. There is no need to be on the watch, or ready to be watchful all the time, as animals need to be, to survive.
But animals don't merely secure their physical survival by panoraming. Throughout evolution, going panoramic has been the unquestionable and natural way to switch off, stop doing everything and be still for a moment. And for animals, it is a constant reminder of how it feels to be now and still. Panoraming is an attitude to life, it's a way to be, it opens up another dimension of an individuals relationship with the world, of feeling part of the whole.
There's nothing dramatic about it, it won't blow your mind, ... in itself it is very normal, nothing special – any animal can do it ... maybe the only really fascinating thing, is what makes me write: how we've lost this ability, and have become so completely blind to it and the possibilities and potential it has.
It's reliable, easy and natural. Anyone of any culture could do ... whatever their focused beliefs. It's in the human make up. It's not a new religion, it's a vital part of the original ancient way of being. It's a common denominator among all creatures and people of all cultures. It could be a great unifying factor for people of all cultures.
