Excerpt About Touch
Consciousness requires sensitivity in order to feel, to experience, to be in touch with itself. The green latifa provides heart sensitivity, which is not just awareness or consciousness. Our consciousness becomes delicate, supple, soft, and minutely considerate of what’s happening. It attains a refined, exquisite awareness, which we feel as a sensitivity. It is as if each atom of our soul had become a tendril, a nerve fiber that can sense and feel in a very delicate, subtle, refined way. This sensitivity pervades the whole field of experience, the whole soul, when the Green aspect of Compassion is dominant. It makes it possible for us to recognize the inherent discrimination in our experience through feeling, through intimacy, through contact.
