I just returned from a trip away and read all the posts. Each affects me and touches an aspect of my own reality. I appreciate Wendy’s reminder to not get lost in other’s agenda but to eat from all.
I’d love to have posts from real daily life offered to give substance to the give and take philosophy. It all sounds stimulating and interesting and I can feel the passion in the posts but can’t see how it affects your life.
AS Nothingness said, it is all about love. When I came home, I was faced with a shoulder injury that could seriously compromise my ability to earn a living. The more I focused on the injury and pain the more hopeless and less centered I felt. Last night was filled with nightmares.
In work today I shifted to moving my arms from my heart. Not in the purely emotional but in the physical as well. All of a sudden I could breathe into motion and remain spacious in my core. I saw how much I was pushing my work and not letting myself stand underneath of it and respond from my core. Like the way Guy and all of us could approach our practice.
I have been warned that my work is susceptible to repetitive stress syndromes but it struck me that in nature movement happens over and over without the burnout. SO why can’t I embody my movements from a regenerating place and not one that deflates and hardens?
I also came home in touch with my sexual feelings for my wife. Married 25 years, kids out of the home, and it is the sexual polarity that still feeds my inner growth, healing and imagination.
Love, Sex and embracing work, what else is there? baba
