When I was in grad school I learned how to ski and totally fell in love with the sport because it forced me to drop all my anxiety and focus on the here and now. When I picked up flying trapeze, I noticed a lot of flyers said the same thing, that they loved flying because when they’re up in the air they can’t worry about anything else.
It’s a sad commentary on mass consciousness that we spend most our lives so disconnected from our own inner flow that we don’t recognize the splendor of our own presence. Instead we ascribe the rush we feel to external experiences, being in our happy place, or being in the company of loved ones. When we choose to be fully present for an activity or let down our guards with our beloved, most of the good feelings we feel come directly from our own flow.
You are gracing yourself with your own presence. Breathe this thought in. You grace yourself with your own presence.
You can feel this alive all the time, regardless of where you are, what you are doing, or with whom. All it takes is for you to come more fully into yourself over time. Your happy place is within.
When these tapes play it only means you haven’t tapped deeply enough to find your luminous center that can hold space for all the choppy waves at the surface of your energy fields. You do this by taking your meditation practice off the mat. This year I am adding offerings to teach others how to do this. Contact me for details!
