Giving yourself SPACE.
S P A C E.
Today’s lunchtime meditation at Three Jewels in NYC reminded me.
Laying on the floor, focusing on the breath, for half an hour. In my work clothes, no less.
Not asking anything of yourself but to EXIST. And experience the marvel of your existence.. But just laying. And breathing. Not judging. Coming back and back and back.. To the breath.
Taking a hit off your natural energy.. I haven’t felt this in so long. My mind has been absolutely RUTHLESS lately. I am feeling the effects of all my aforementioned issues in addition to distraction and internet addiction.
But that’s not what this is about.
This is about a dedication to myself and to BEING. Just – being.
And that meditation made me realize that it is still – and always will be – POSSIBLE. To float out of yourself, your body, your constrictions, restrictions, obligations, obsessions, fixations, crippling fears, and exhaustion.
Just float. Away.
This is my journey. Back to the jewel in the center of the lotus.
Om Mani Padme Hum.
now the day has dawned and the lamp that lit my dark corner is out. a summons has come and i am ready for my journey.
