get into your temple // whatever works

there's a practice that is known in meditation circles as 'second attention' where you focus on a chosen element of your being (it can be a part of your body or your breath) and whilst keeping your attention there, take your secondary attention to another point - this can be a multitude of things, your heart, a white light at the pituitary gland, a blue light at the heart and so on. 

 

(intimacy with): inner inquiry

what do you already know to be true that you are not fully admitting to yourself?

...and can we be grateful when things are incredibly challenging, when we are sick, when things aren't going our way, when it's not quite "there" yet, when we're waiting for something to get "better"?

"it'll be easier when..."

deferring ok ness to an imaginary future?

its a bit of a habit isn't it...

practice with me....(breathing....)

have you ever been in a big sad deep hole? was there a soundtrack to that time in your life? even just a song? 

i was on my yoga mat today when a song came on my playlist that i had listened to a few years back on a loop. yes, i can be a little obsessive about music when it feels like a key that will unlock some emotion and this one was the master key in one of my life's most intense periods. 

we are not so separate, you and me.

we are not so separate, you and me.

when i feel sadness, i can connect to all the other beings past, present and future that have felt sadness. in truth, we all feel the same things. whatever i'm feeling, you have felt or will feel too. feeling everything fully connects us to the whole.
