Count your blessings.
From a conversation with Art:Art：This phrase hold true.
me：Tell me more about it. How do you count your blessings?
Art：Right.You act as if you count them.
me: So you act?
Art：Exactly。The act of counting helps you.
me: I get it. To say “Count your blessing” out loud becomes your act, right?
Art：That’s what it’s all about. You just say it to yourself.
me: “Count your blessing.” That’s it.
Art： Believe it or not, your voice is much more powerful than you think.
me: It helps you reflect.
Art： We are always thinking in our heads. And we feel as if we said it.
me: That’s why we actually don’t vocalize anything that matters..
Art： Yes. So we need a method so that we can act.
There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
Art： “Knowing the path” is getting knowledge, “Walking the path” is practice. But then, the word practice is knowledge, too.
me： Oh, that’s a trap, isn’t it?
Art： When you start thinking, we can end up not doing it. And that’s the problem.
me： We are very familiar with the word “action.” We think in action, and that’s it. What can we do?
Art: We need something that helps us move our bodies before thinking too much.
me： That seems to be key to practice that lasts. Art: You’re right. Once you’ve done something almost unknowingly, you realize you did it.
That’s how we’d like practice work.
me: Is that why you like Empatheme?
Art:：Yeah, it’s a micro practice or minimal practice.
me: Yes, it creates a moment in a natural flow. All you need to do let that moment happen.
Art:：And go with the flow. With Empatheme, you are a part of the environment and the flow.
me:: Dear readers, please try out Empatheme, and practice a little “Mi Pra” for yourself!
Count your empathemes every day.
There’s a difference between walking the path and walking through the trail.
