Physical and psychological problems of the body require space to heal. The space is necessary for something new. The new occupies the space and provides what is needed to regain homeostasis. Sounds simple, right? Ha!
There is truth to the idea of creating space in the Now. When we release past thoughts from the psyche and allow them to not hold power over our life story, we have space. When we release future thoughts from the psyche and allow them to not hold power over our life story, we have space. When we take deep breathes in an asana like Warrior 1, we elongate muscle tissue and have space. The space created offers us the necessary room to grow.
Throughout the day today, let’s find space.
Practicing the Power of Now – Find the Life Underneath the Life
“When you are full of problems, there is no room for anything new to enter, no room for a solution. So whenever you can, make some room, create some space, so that you find the life underneath your life situation.
Listen to the sounds; don’t judge them. Listen to the silence underneath the sounds.
Touch something – anything – and feel and acknowledge it without judgment.
You are leaving behind the deadening world of mental abstractions, of time. You are getting out of the insane mind that is draining you of life energy, just as it is slowly poisoning and destroying the Earth. You are awakening out of the dream of time into the present.”
