Increase pure awareness.
When you look and listen in this way, you will become aware of a sense of calm, stillness, and peace. When consciousness is no longer absorbed by thinking, this is inner space. The frequency and duration of those spaces determine your ability to enjoy life and to feel an inner connectedness with other human beings as well as nature. When you become conscious of these brief spaces, they happen naturally, they will lengthen, and you will experience joy with increasing frequency. The world around you then feels fresh and alive.
