My take on the lovely posts of Sara Marks (much gratitude for both her Prelude and her Post): Floaties can be the way of fear and hiding, of distraction and looking away. Used mindfully, floaties allow rest, release. Floaties are not asleep, tuned out, zoned out. Floaties are a choice to let go, to feel the support all around. Floaties are the body’s way: engaging and looking out with clarity and then relaxing and looking in. Floaties are a reminder to let go fully (sometimes more difficult than one might think). EveryBODY needs a pair of purple Nike floaties sometimes.
