Ecstasy

"The body is an instrument which only gives off music when it is used as a body. Always an orchestra. And just as music traverses walls, so sensuality traverses the body and reaches up to ecstasy."- Anais Nin

Transitions

I'm going through huge transition. I can't help but feel torn, broken, shredded to a thousand pieces. My heart is raw. This quote ran across my newsfeed on Facebook and I'm so happy and grateful to have run across it.

"Being in transition doesn’t mean you’re broken. It means you’re breaking away from the old, the world that no longer fits you. It may seem as though there are big gaping holes in your life. But it takes some room to spread your wings." - Tama J. Kieves

I'm happy that I've run across it, because no matter how much I've learned to trust and let go- my mind darkens. My heart closes. I see the victim surfacing, I feel resentment and anger mixing into a toxic elixir. The darkness leaves me feeling broken. 

Breaking away means letting go though. It invites new energy into your life. My past experience shows that more grace flows through me when I let go. May I earn all my current and future gray hairs with grace. 

the present moment is all we have

Ocean and Land

Yoga is helping me bridge the two worlds. One foot in infinite mystery and creative potential, one foot on grounded land and current moment to moment reality. Learning to intertwine both of them is an art and yoga helps.

Going off the beaten path promises so many jewels for the longing heart. But it is the road less travelled, tough terrain is inevitable, but the opening of the heart, the strengthening of faith and trust  is so damn magical. 

A woman who has uncovered and honors her intimacy with the earth through developing a relationship with nature or through the power within her own body carries a wisdom of infinite mystery and potential.

She moves through life with one foot in a strange ocean, one on the solid land of her ordinary life.

This is not just an idea, but a way to live.

Mystics, artists, and mothers of young children know this ability to be half-absorbed in unnameable creative forces while still attentive to their embodied reality, capable on a moment-to-moment basis of drawing from those deeper forces to create and nourish life around them.
— Hilary Hart, "Body of Wisdom"
