I lost my momentum.
It’s easy to lose momentum sometimes.
But every once in awhile you just need a break, right!?
After hiking the JMT I was very much feeling like I needed a break. I just needed to stop. No movement. Rest my body. Heal wounds & have fun.
But I found it hard to get back in the flow. I couldn’t make up my mind about what I wanted to do with my time, so I just didn’t do much of anything for a bit.
So although my momentum has been lacking the past couple months, I find it picking up quite rapidly all of a sudden. You see, the moment I decided which direction to move in, force couldn’t help but move me there. And move me there now, little by little, one step at a time. This is where patience & determination & dedication are imperative. I find it so much easier to just flake out & run away & go to a place where I am unknown & seemingly free of preconceived notions & responsibility for actions. But the point is to know. To know yourself wholly – your flaws, your strengths, your passions, your debts, your limits.
To know yourself & to love yourself is the goal.
And not just loving the pleasant side of you, the one who is at her best & on point & totally there. But in loving & in knowing the other facets of you. The you who falls short sometimes. The you who gets sad for no apparent reason. The you who would rather avoid facing the moment you’re in because opening to it might be hard.
But that’s where you grow. In coming to know the whole you & loving the whole you, you open automatically to infinite growth, unconditional love, absolute presence.
Sit back. Relax your shoulders.
Untighten your jaw.
Let your forehead fall.
Your eyebrows & eyelids soften.
Now find your breath.
Feel your seat, firm & grounded.
Your neck extended tall & straight.
Core strong. Mind calm.
And let it all go
with a nice long siiiiighhhh outward.
Pick a direction that feels right to you.
Gain your momentum.
Trust your heart.
GO FOR IT.
What have you got to lose?
