Hey there fellow dancers,yogis etc....
this is my very first blog entry, so hang in there with me... :-)
Its a hot one today ,humidity is high, sun is full on,no clouds.. yet a few months ago we were all complaining about how cold it was ..brrr, I guess that's just human nature, right?! We tend to never be quite satisfied. Be it in our careers/jobs, our relationships, where we live etc, the list can go on and on..and yes I am guilty as charged, we all do at one time or another. Sometimes I wonder, will that ever change ... will we, as human beings ever be ok with what we have at this moment in this lifetime? We are continously bombarded by the media,social media included, to be our best, always encouraging us to keep going, be better, accomplish more etc..that we end up comparing ourselves to others accomplishments,progress and such without even realizing that we are doing it ..scary huh?
At which point do we say to ourselves, I am where I am supposed to be at this time at this very moment.? Well, I beleive it's different for everyone, we all have our own mini epiphanies, if you will. Fortunately for me , mine happens while I'm teaching yoga or dance....hmm..how did that happen ....sometimes while i am in the midst of breaking down an asana or choreography, I tend to use analogies and or pholosphies that pertain to that specific movement.. I like to call it divine intervention...hey, I can't take full credit ....but when that happens, it's my "ah- ha" moment. It is within that moment that it all becomes clear, this, is where I am supposed to be at this moment doing this thing at this time ...BEING PRESENT ! ah-ha! Some people call it mindfullness, awareness(svadyaya) ..whatever you choose to call it , embrace it, relish in it, and that, my freinds, is the Universe working with you. As they say, whoever "they" are ..." go with the flow" , trust in the process and most of all, trust yourself.
So , Yes, it's hot , it's humid , it's summer and yes that too will inevitably change , just know that you are where your'e suppposed to be , be PRESENT , enjoy the moment !
Peace love and Light :-)
