wake up and more

We are waking up and waking up some more
— sue monk kidd

I have realized recently that it is not enough to wake up.

That is merely the first step.

After waking up, it is necessary to develop the ability
to see, to hear, to feel, to taste, to smell.  

We keep telling ourselves, telling others,

to wake up but there is more.

If we do not develop our physical and our intuitive senses,

we are no more that zombies walking.

Life is full of wonder and being conscious

is not enough to live.

So what now?

The alarms are going on all around.

Wake up, indeed.

But more is needed.
