REFLECTIONS on PRACTICING in NATURE
After some very important time in the desert. . .surroundings that are of my birth energy . . . I have been renewed. . .
with the potency of wide open skies ...
with the slow chrystalline moving energy of rocks - each with different signatures
with the wind that weaves its way amongst the more fixed elements. . .
I have found how much that my yoga practice needs to be in harmony with the elements.
I tried to "do" some asanas atop the rocks . . . it wouldn't happen, my body didn't feel right . . .
when I was in harmony . .. after I relaxed into "not doing" the asanas. . .
arose a magical effortless . . . a beauty that isn't but also is MINE . . .
I became a rock, a sky, a wind, a raven, a tarantula . . .
I recognized my shamanic presence. ..
I want to share this with you . . .
I want for you to come into nature with me.
I want for us to throw away the "sticky mats" and learn to find our spider web paws and climbing feet.
I want for us together to play in our gravity. . .
and our levity . . .
to melt next to a rock, or a tree or in an ocean or a spring as close and intimate as our lover.
This will break all the rules . ..
it is a tantric-shamanic journey for the brave-hearted. . .
who are not afraid to burn down their houses to see the wide open sky . . .
freedom is in this path . . .
and I will walk,
in this way . . .
i invite companions . . .
are you coming with me?
lets make opportunities together to share this presence of our Mother Earth . . .
the sky, the flow, the presence, . .. the stillness.
