Most human beings are not #paying attention to these simple things that they are doing. They are gulping down what they eat and drink. They breathe completely unconsciously. They touch anything and everything without knowing what they are touching or feeling. Largely, it is happening like this for most people. You can be far more attentive to these things without slowing down anything – this is important, because people think that if you have to pay attention to your breathing, you should not be doing anything else, you must just be breathing. No.
The beauty of being human is that we have a cerebral capability of conducting complex activity within us and we are still able to pay attention.
