Today’s midnight musings go out to this magic woman.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ~ How can I ever put into words the gift you have given me. Even as I pour words onto paper I feel they are unable to grasp the depth of what my heart wants to say. The way you let your pain light the spark of a new way of living. How you worked tirelessly for the sake of your inner peace and forgiveness. In a time when I had grown so comfortable with my stories, that i didn’t realise they were crippling me beneath their weight, I couldn’t help but notice the way you changed before my eyes. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes you began to shake off the bitterness of betrayal, and stretch out your wings. You started to shine, to smile and laugh, that full belly laugh that is so contagious to be around. And as you grew lighter, something stirred in me. I was unable to ignore my darkness, because I was witnessing another possibility unfold before my eyes. You lit the way forward. Your footprints in the sand guiding me towards a new reality 👣~

Yoga is not a one time fix. The Work of Byron Katie is not a one time fix. Meditation is not a one time fix. Basically whatever the practice/path of your choosing - my guess, it’s not a one time fix. The possibility of transformation lies within a dedicated, regular practice of something over long periods of time. The returning to the mat (cushion, paper, forest etc) day after day. On the days when you feel amazing, aaand on the days when you feel like crap. Whatever your practice may be, commit to it. In a world seduced by the need to have it all now, and intoxicated with options, be a rebel and commit wholeheartedly to you and your path with the awareness that it is for the long term. Commit and then practice. Practice with faith and openness. With honesty and compassion. And most importantly of all, practice with non attachment to the result. With the understanding that nothing in life is linear, that this journey will have highs and lows, that it will have moments of beauty and profound insight, and moments of discomfort and doubt. And yet the one constant remains, the constant of you and your practice. Do this and who knows what might eventuate. Practice, and who knows what is possible. “Practice and all is coming” - Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀

Like the seasons, I change I expand and I contract I bloom and I fall Moments of sunshine where my light feels so bright it could illuminate the world And moments of introspection, where the external world fades away leaving me to navigate the darkness alone Moments where to the curious eye everything would appear unchanging When in fact the seed of growth is expanding building strength to break the surface and bloom The only real constant is change Sometimes over months, sometimes weeks, sometimes days Learning to embrace the turning of seasons within me To not expect the warmth of summer when I am deep in the depths of winter To not expect flowers when the trees are bare To embrace whatever season appears in this moment, trusting that there is beauty in all of it And as everything changes theres comfort in knowing that the darkness of winter will not last And a reminder to rejoice in the warmth of the sun as this is impermanent also ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -non attachment ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @sohrachsoh & @lululemonakl #yoga #asana #practice #selfstudy #svadyaya #spokenword #seasons #change #spokenwordpoetry

Let the lens come down The film of delusion that blankets your eyes, let it fall Revealing the truth The truth that you are more than the stories you carry The stories of suffering, of betrayal, of hurt The stories that have defined you for so long ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is time time to turn the gaze inward and begin the journey home Unlearning, unravelling ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let go of any hope of perfection This journey may be messy It may be uncomfortable It may be painful And yet trust Trust the voice that calls you home, it will not steer you wrong ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let the armour of protection crack open, allowing the light to shine in ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let the armour of protection crack open, allowing your light to shine out, bathing the world in your magnificence
