I am of a personality type that considers the deep cosmic consequences of the tree falling in the forest. My soul mate, on the other hand, is of the type that considers the consequences the tree had on the subterranian life at site of impact. It does not take much for me to become aware of the Divine presence among us by looking out at the stars and planets. And, while pondering the great awareness and savouring the awe, she would remark on the colony of intricate social structures of tiny life forms that she noticed between my feet in the sand. I then observe her awe, amazement and awareness of the presence of the Divine among us.

Surely those devotees experience things that indoors people would hardly ever get to contemplate. That is of course if they care to stop and smell the roses--but that goes for the indoors and outdoors types doesnt it.
