I am in the midst of one of the busiest periods of my life. Waves of opportunities and troughs of shock have been experienced lately. In the midst of it all, I am committed to attending at least one hour per day of a dynamic retreat.
I feel like I say this each year, when I do a juicy dive into Bodhicitta filled somatic bliss, but how can I forget so easily that my fluid body is potent, resilient and ever so playful??? To escape from that playful potency is a bad habit of mine… perhaps it is out of fear… or due to imprinting on the tense rigid bodies around me everyday at work. But I need this juicy medicine.
In just two hours this early morning, I chanted some mantras in as present a mindset as I could muster. Then it was contemplating the Eight Verses for Training the Mind. But the juiciest part for me was the Zapchen Somatics that we did for twenty minutes. How did My body forget that I can have warmth comforting fluid in my back, behind my heart, soothing my brainstem? Good golly! I don’t want to have to rediscover these precious nuggets every year 🙂 But if that is the case, it is just fine! Because at least then I would have the inner adventure of a lifetime, all over again. MMMmmm!!
