Just as the sun does not leave it’s position in the sky to illuminate objects with its radiating light, so consciousness does not leave it’s center to project awareness onto the objects of form, thoughts, and emotions. If you ever want to re-center, just start saying “hello” inside, over and over. Then notice that you are aware of that thought. Don’t think about being aware of it; just another thought. Simply relax and be aware that you hear “hello” being echoed in your mind. That is your seat of centered consciousness.
– A passage from the book I’m currently reading, The Untethered Soul
