The compass heading is always the focus of our attention—meaning that our attention determines the compass heading. That attention/compass heading can shift as rapidly as there are directions or it can land on something as seemingly regular as the North Star. The point is if one wants to know what’s up, check out the general pattern of one’s attention.
And if one wants to change a pattern, pick a particular and focus on that.
