My amazing yoga teacher read this today.
And after she read it, and we came out of savasana, she turns to me and says ‘holy crap, this was written for you!’ and as she’s tearing it out of her books she goes ‘you gotta keep this!’ and I’m like ‘no, no dont rip it out of your book!’
She smiles and says ‘why not, it’s just a book.’
Thank you Mary.
Today was a slow moving, quiet, Fall-day, it started with yoga class and it ended with homeade rissoto with my best friend Sean. Today was a slow moving beautiful day.
This is a good reminder for anyone, no matter where you are…
You haven’t lost your place
Sometimes when life shifts and changes, it can feel like we’ve lost our place.
During those times when our lives are changing, we may feel out of tune, out of rhythm, out of balance, out of step. Maybe an old feeling is surfacing, clearing so that we can learn something new and move forward to a new place. Maybe our attention is being diverted to a new focus so we can find and experience another lesson. Sometimes the form or shape of our life is changing dramatically. The old picture is being erased so a new one can be drawn. Familiar people are leaving, new people are entering. We may ache, feel irritable, and doubt the course of our entire journey. We may doubt whether the magical way we were living was even real or whether the magic will ever return.
Let the changes happen. Take extra loving care of yourself. Be attentive to what you need. The magic isn’t gone, it hasnt disappeared. You’re just going through a shift. That means things are moving, and movement is good.
For now it may feel like you cant find your place, but that’s because your place is changing.
