Flow

Through my own practice I seek to create a flow: slow enough to notice how things happen, to enjoy the degree of control I have (flow, not float), and fast enough to keep things moving, without getting stuck, without dwelling on things, enjoying fluidity and vigour. I open my chest and hips noticing my vulnerability. I accommodate. I give and I take. I flow growing in strength and patience. I may tumble or trip, I may hit a brick wall. That's just a part of the larger flow. Flow with humility.

Your Inner Light

As you look inwards, initially you may find doubts, concerns, uncertainty that are even more acute than on the surface. If you persevere (practicing meditation, pranayama, mindfulness, flow), you may begin to catch glimpses of your inner light - the very point of reference that is not affected by any external circumstances, unchanging and completely non-judgmental. The things before your eyes and in your head will still be the same, but your perspective will begin to change. Feel reassured by this warmth and light that you find within as it will light your path.

Energy ebb and flow

During the recent workshops we explored grounding and balancing our energy. We all have limited time and yet we waste so much of it even though we know what we engage in is neither helpful nor necessary. For instance overthinking and dwelling on things or, on the other hand, somewhat mindless activities including letting social media hijack so much or our time. Perhaps we can all have a slightly better routine, this may help find a better balance: reflect instead of dwelling, use social media/phones for things that matter without developing an addiction-like sense of urgency if you've not checked your phone for 10 minutes, make time for what really matters and some form of practice (asana, pranayama, meditation etc.). It's difficult yet rewarding.
