Dropping a glass can be a meditation bell calling you to attention, breaking on impact, shattering our awareness, snapping us to reality. Our intention to place the glass safely lost. We lament what went wrong, judging ourselves and others in the aftermath. Glass, a metaphor for relationships, work, management, or living, shatters when we take our attention away, leaving our body to complete the tasks assigned. Muscle memory, don’t fail me now.
