Dive in and emerge

Working intensively and fully immersing yourself with all your senses and full attention is like diving deeply. Has anyone called? I didn't hear anything. I don't feel hungry for hours and then at some point I realize that I'm thirsty after all. Emerging from it is like waking up in the morning. I was active elsewhere than here and completely absorbed. Nice, but then to rise again into the physical needs, into the now and into my immediate surroundings. I am grateful that I feel good in everyday life and that I can happily move up into being here. This is not the case for everyone. That's why I take an extra breath of fresh air and think: THANK YOU while breathing out. It is good now.
