Not seeing the magic

It's not that you don't see the magic,
you simply got used to it,
and so you take it for granted -
you don't see the magicness of the magic anymore.

Take for example
your sophisticated body,
and the way your sense of "I" is attached to this body.
How extraordinary!
How can you take this mechanism for granted?

The next grace period
in which you are able to see the magic again
is so fleeting.
Be alert and attentive
but make sure not to try to employ any effort,
trust the grace
to do the work for you.
You just be alert and attentive.

"...just be alert and attentive."

To anything in the present momnet?

Examples:

While showering, "...just be alert and attentive" to the feel of the water, soap, in the present moment?

While walking, "...just be alert and attentive" to the feel of each single footstep, in the present moment?

Or, "just be alert and attentive" to the feel of each breath, in the present moment?

Or, my all time favotire, "...just be alert and attentive" to the feel of the innerbody, in the present moment?
