On a beautiful sunny day in the park, in the utter quietness of the moment everything seems just naturally perfect. As the gentle breeze is touching my skin and cooling me under the warming sun, my harmonious state is even more refined. The birds are performing their pretty chorus lines from behind the bushes, the grass is showing off like a perfect evergreen..as a gigantic pigeon is walking circles around my resting body on the ground.
Who on Earth would want to change this experience. Why would we want to change the gifts that have been inherently given to us by nature.
I found that as i have been stepping, falling and feeling into the meaning and expression of yoga, forming and shaping what it truly means to me and giving myself permission to refine its meaning each and every day..everything that is unnatural, forced or regulated is just falling away from my practice. Falling away like the leaves of the trees do in the Autumn..peeling off the conditioning of my yoga body and gradually revealing another piece of my naked flesh..as i give myself permission to live, laugh, move and feel freely each and every moment.Yes, i want to know what is our natural constitution as we live our life in our human forms and want to know what makes my spirit rise in each and every moment.
As my body is awakening, breathing, expressing, feeling and therefore shining each day a little more..i find those cords that had been lost to my sight are mending and i find the safety of being held ..held in the caring arms of the Universe.
