The more aware I become, the more I laugh at how funny we humans are.
In my human experience, I have encountered two kinds of people in the world:
- Those who want to spend their lives soul spelunking…and
- Those who shake their heads and say, “I don’t have time for all that touchy-feely nonsense.”
I’m part of the weirdo tribe, I guess.
In case you were wondering, that would be group #1.
Luckily, there are other people in this world who share my proclivity for deep self exploration, meaningful conversation, and creative expression.
I would expect, since you are reading this, that you might be one of the tribe. And since 2019 seems to be my year for asking this question, I ask you, “What do you want?”
When I reflected on this myself recently, this is what came out of my pen onto the page:
Without sarcasm or ulterior motives, I am declaring here and now that I will not accept a life that skims the surface anymore. I can’t fake it. I won’t.
I want to sit in circles, bear my heart and soul, cry the Laura Dern/Claire Danes cry, laugh like a crazy person, light fires, dance around them, write furiously, and then throw my words into the flames. I want every moment to be a devotion.
I want to geek out about a particular yoga pose so much that it takes up almost an entire 75-minute class. I want to show you that there is more to yoga than a “workout.” I want to slow down your body and mind so much that you actually FEEL.
And sometimes, I want to get so nerdy and read in my pajamas, scowling at anyone who comes near. Sometimes, I want to brew strong black tea and watch cozy British mysteries all day. Sometimes, I want to be alone so bad it hurts. I want to be the queen of the introverts.
And sometimes, I want to explore the world with other adventurers. Jump into freezing cold lakes. Hike up mountains. Stand in the center of an underground cave and listen to the silence.
I want to bask in the light and look deep into the dark places and ask, “What’s In There?”
I want to be who I am in every moment.
What do you want? What’s in there? Are you ready to go soul spelunking?
Also, mark your calendar (or better yet, SIGN-UP now) for one of my upcoming workshops:
- Yoga for Seasonal Self-Care
- Intention: Blossom (where you can explore the question, “how do I want to feel?” and learn ways to create a life around that)
Hope to see you in the depths!
