"Spiritually Awake."

From Everyday Simplicity: A Practical Guide to Spiritual Growth by Robert J. Wicks:

Spiritual Tenet 2: Stay "spiritually awake"

This means avoid having expectations of what should happen in your life. Instead open your eyes and let yourself be surprised by all of life. Such a discipline takes practice. Every morning make a vow to stay awake and remind yourself several times during the day to pay attention to "the now."

This is a great little spiritual book I picked up a couple years ago and have reread a couple times when the time was right. It is cool because you can read just a bit here and there and be touched and inspired to make some adjustments in your attitude and find your true self "in the midst of all the craziness."
