Analyst / Investigator for Normal Paranormal
As a cyclist I have been bombarded this past year with articles based on the theme of slowing down, taking in the scenery and enjoying the ride. For many in the world of fitness / training that seems like such an odd concept. Turn off your computers, pay no attention to speed, calories burned, etc. etc.? And yet, it makes sense.
How do I do this exactly?
It's easy. Turn everything off and go natural.
"Trust your feelings, Luke."
Though I've regularly joked about disrobing on an investigation to sit quietly alone awaiting something to come to me, rather than searching for it, that notion is not entirely humorous…just the disrobing bit. Alone you are aware. Empty handed you are free and in the darkness you are vulnerable. Of course at that time your senses are working overtime.
It's invigorating and I definitely believe it can result in what could be, at the least, your top personal experience. And though you may question, what if only you had your recording device handy. You really must ask that question. Well, what if you had?
Back on the bike, I continue to log my efforts while I pedal along the roads trying to push myself further and faster. I do, however, now and again take the time to relax and enjoy the ride. You should too. You may be surprised at what surrounds you when you look with your own eyes.
