Have you ever felt that when we look out of the window, we are peeping inside ourselves?Certainly, I can say that as a kid, we often looked outside the school or home window. You all must have noticed that we all still do this often. Often when we look outside the window we get lost in our thoughts, perceptions, and feelings. we find that our mind has also calmed down, resulting in newness and excitement in us. At that moment we are looking outward, but, in fact, at that time, we perceive the pleasure of going through the process of introspection and subtle meditation without any hindrance.
Often we have found that when we look out of the window while traveling in a bus/train/car, we feel a deep connection with nature. Many times we have seen children how they forget everything while looking out the window and keep their eyes out as if they are in deep thought.
Several times we have seen that when we are a little distracted or unable to concentrate anywhere, we stand up directly in front of the window. At that juncture, we head to the window and stare outside while drinking tea or coffee. Thereupon we feel peaceful and relaxed as if fresh energy has been transmitted.
It appears that we are gazing outside but we are analyzing the inside. Don't you think this is a great exercise for self-analysis?
