With the beginning of September a new season starts. School begins again.
In the air has been lingering a mixture of curiosity and change. A different structure for the daily life for me, my son Zion and maybe for you and your family as well. A look into the unknown, what it may bring, offer and serve with.
How have you been working it all out?
Instead of rushing through, establishing fast a new rhythm and filling the gabs, this round Im taking my time.
The book Im reading currently “Der Elefant, der das Glück vergaß“ from Buddhist Monk Ajahn Brahm spoke about “the in-between-moment”. It made me aware, that in those moments of change Im able to breath through life freely and to actually create. The puzzle can be put together from the beginning and surely it’ll hold excitement, challenges, growth and love.
When I take action and do my best to “puzzle”, the universe will do its part too. Im safe, because it’ll work out the way it needs to be.
It’s the same Ive experienced in my practice of Ashtanga Yoga.
I had events during my practice, when my mind was already in the next pose while performing the previous one. What usually happened, was this: I forgot the pose I was thinking off, I didn’t breathe properly in the one I was in or I simply functioned in the position rather than being in it. Becoming aware of the little yet effective hints in my personal practice, I figured being present must be the better choice no matter how hectic my mind is - or in life - how strong the whirlwind of change around me is.
“The in-between-moment” is rich, soil for creation and so worth to engage with.
It brings curiosity, excitement and courage. It's an invitation to stand up for what needs to be changed anyway and do it.
Presence and movement working perfectly together.
Speaking of Ashtanga Yoga ;)!
Here are the the practice options and I hope, you're inspired.
