The foot feels the foot when it feels the ground, or so Buddha has said.
I know what he means, at least for me.
It is when I am most connected with the natural world that I am most connected to and in sync with my true self.
It is when I am most in sync with my true self that I am most able to interact with the world.
If I could but spend my days running barefoot through the grass with hounds.
Having felt what I am not, I feel what I am.
