stress is a wonky shopping cart

Stress thwarts open awareness through intense focus, utilizing the Left side of the brain. Peace allows the non-verbal Right side of your brain (subconscious?) to drift insights and pattern recognition to the surface.

Conditioned to insecurity (precarity) we are experiencing asymmetry.

This produces a constant need for effort as if your shopping cart is pulling to the Left and producing a hideous racket drowning out subtle appreciation.
