Monday Inspiration Celebration: quiet
Hard to imagine, but I am feeling very quiet these days. Not that a lot isn't happening ... it just is all internal and the words have yet to reach the surface. I am not at the surface; Deep is requiring me to spiral further and further inward and right now and I am not prepared to surface. What I am doing is listening, journaling, painting and listening some more.
What is sustaining me these days:
My commitment to the 21 days of Yoga challenge by Yoga Journal and an amazing 10 minute meditation by my teacher, Sudhir Jonathan Foust. I'm not sure if this link will work, but if the page opens, select the audio file Energy Awareness Meditation. Each time I do this practice, I am blown away by the depth of awareness and feeling it allows me to tap into.
I love this link Connie shared with us about tuning into our natural rhythms - something I all too often forget to honor. Now I am.
It has been a long weekend of play, time with family, and time to do what we love: create.
It is not a winter of discontent (although the cold and gray are getting tedious) but a season requiring my full presence and patience. Something is taking root and I need to slow down and allow it time to strengthen and grow.
What lesson does this winter hold for you?
I am also clinging tightly to this realization (I mean, it's on a card!)
See that? Artist. That's me. Now, excuse while I get back to my paints ...
