We weave our life and then move along in it.
We are like the dreamer who dreams and then lives in the dream.
This is true for the entire universe."
Today my heart keeps resounding the theme of acceptance. This is my third attempt to post, so it's my guess that the Universe wants to make sure I am getting this message loud and clear. I chuckle to myself, because each post has evolved into something completely different. I trust that this one will be of most benefit.
As I begin to explore more deeply my relationship to the ceremony of acceptance, I find that one of the most intricate threads is woven through this lens of my life. Just as the spider so fancifully creates a labyrinth of intersections, so too do we create these vortexes of ceremonies and dreams.
The more we practice the sophisticated act of ceremony, the more we see it is a simplified process of living. In essence, our ceremony becomes our life. We no longer distinguish between 'this' and 'that.'
As I rolled out my Yoga mat this morning, I found the comforts of my living room inviting me to move slowly and more thoughtfully than usual. I created an altar to refocus my intention. I chanted in gratitude. I rested in reverence. I allowed the soft movements of my body to exclaim my intention for the day. 'Acceptance' resounded throughout every cell of my being. "Move softly and thoughtfully." I heard this message clarifying my intention. Today I shall practice acceptance. Instead of analyzing my feelings, I will accept and trust my deep inner knowing.
As I moved on my mat, I felt a symphony of grace ushering out grief and judgment. I felt this same symphony inviting in love and softness. Settling into my physical body allowed me to get in touch with the subtle life force energy that is always just below the surface. I felt an excitement in my heart. I felt the subtle shift of stretching in my hips. I noticed that all I needed to do was to make space for everything that showed up this morning. Our bodies are rich with wisdom. The confusion of our thinking mind muddies this innate inner resource. I felt a powerful purpose as I dedicated my hour practice to Acceptance.
Acceptance is a purposeful invitation to live in a more ceremonial way. May this day solidify the gift of ceremony in your life. May you surrender into acceptance as you entertain the curiosity of living more infinitely. May the ceremony of breath and movement both on and off of your mat invite you to more closely walk towards your dreams. What does the sweet voice of acceptance sound like in your life? How can you more humbly entertain this visitor? Honor your heart sweet and tender lights!
May You Sweetly Seek:)
