A human being takes for granted

many words and expressions,

not really knowing their meaning.

Take the word “sentience”.

This word is rarely heard.

It is a word hard to pronounce.

It is pronounced SEN-chee-ans.

Sentience refers to the human process,

enabling a person to perceive and feel,

then becoming conscious and self-aware.

The process is indeed a precious miracle

for each conscious moment we possess.

My eyes closed,

sitting in quietness,

relaxed in timelessness,

immersed in space

without boundaries,

sensing inner warmth,

comfort and contentment.

How wonderful it is being here.
