Yoga reminds me that I am whole and complete in this moment. This moment, sitting here, typing this message, is full and realized. It is realized because I dwell in it and recognize its wholeness - nothing more needed to make it better.
I once thought that what made life great is achieving, moving forward, and producing. While I’m grateful for what I have accomplished, I’m most grateful for what I am doing now. I’m in a transition period. I work most days and rest when I’m not working. I haven’t had much time to create music or write, yet I’m enjoying where I am.
Instead of wanting to be somewhere else, I understand there’s something to learn here. Being present with myself during this transitory process is a necessary part of the lesson. There has been some criticism from folks (including my inner critic) who want me to produce more, play out more, and teach more and little encouragement for the basics of working and paying the bills on time.
To that end I think the seemingly mundane tasks of everyday life are less glamorous compared to the glories of manifesting big projects and ideas, but both exist and balance one another.
I think back to a time when I had to have a project to work on in order to feel like I was doing something with my life. I think now for the first time I feel comfortable with where I am.
For instance, when I’m asked what I’m up to, the first thing that comes to mind isn’t to talk about a project. I’m comfortable saying that I’m working and teaching.
Not sure what the end point is. I’m just musing, thinking about how so many of us are so great, just because. No reason or explanation or achievement listing necessary...just because.
