Functioning in a state of clarity is a form of multi-tasking. On one hand, you have to pay attention to the external world. You need to drive your car, go to work, shop for groceries, etc. But while you are doing those tasks, you are somewhat detached. They are not that meaningful. As Jesus said, "Be passersby." Your focus and goals should not be on the external world. It should be on your awareness, your spirituality, your love, the space that surrounds everything. Don't become attached to thoughts and beliefs -your own or those of other people. Choose which thoughts you will follow wisely.
