When it’s learned to keep your head where your feet are, most of the so called problems that you think you have will go away. This is because the real problem is the mind lives in a place other than where your feet are.
If you ever want to truly be happy, joyous, and free, learning to keep your head where your feet are is imperative. Whether this occurs consciously or unconsciously, it’s the only way the happy, joyous, and free state will occur. Some do this without being aware of it and others develop a practice to acquire a head and feet connection. Mostly it has to be practiced because of all the influences that aren’t conducive in making this head and feet connection one’s natural way to live. It is one’s natural way to live, but it’s not known because of all the influence that don’t support it.
I know my feet are always where I’m at in each moment, but I can’t say the same for my head (my mind). Sure my actual head is where my feet are, at least I think it is lol, but the mind it seems is always somewhere other than where it is. Look at when one is driving, the mind always wants to be somewhere other than where it is. There’s constant lane changes, annoyances at how others drive, and constant thinking of reaching a destination. And when the mind gets to where it’s going, it’s time to move on and go somewhere else. This is the incessant movement of the Conditioned Mind. It never stays connected to where it’s feet are for long. Always looking over there, but never looking down to see where it truly is.
This is all it takes for a head and feet connection to occur, just look down and wherever your feet are that’s where you are. Although the head (mind) will tell you this is ridiculous, just look down and see where you are as opposed to where your mind is at. The disconnect from being where one’s feet are as opposed to where the head is causes most of one’s suffering. This is because over there is a mind made story while being where your feet are isn’t. And without a mind made story life can be lived as it truly is, with a head and feet connection that keeps one here instead of over there.
