You're alive

How often do you notice that you're alive?

You think: sure, I'm alive, so what?

But that's not noticing it at all. You mapped the word "alive" onto some concept and did some mental arithmetic to verify the statement. But did you look?

An ancient Tibetan saying goes:

So close you can't see it
So deep you can't fathom it
So simple you can't believe it
So good you can't accept it
