As I was walking along a wooded trail the other day, I was about to gently kick a medium-sized rock off the trail. I often do this feeling it is a courtesy for fellow trail walkers not to trip on. I usually walk alone with my dog enjoying mindful meditation and know that when I walk with a friend I'm engaged in conversation and we trip over rocks as we are not as carefully observant of the rock strewn pathway. As a long time believer in "paying it forward", this rock moving just naturally felt good fitting into that theme or philosophy. So the other day as I was about to move my leg toward kicking, I suddenly had the thought "what if you just let it be there?". And just as simply as the thought arose, I kept walking on pace and let the rock just be there. Wow. In that moment I decided I would not kick any rocks this day and just let it all be and see how I felt. Of course I didn't always kick rocks or even look for them. I don't ever kick rocks to release unwanted energy, it was always out of love and care - care for others, care for myself - and this day I learned about just being. I kept feeling into just allowing and just being. I could feel energy and stiffness in my body that I wasn't previously aware of, from my shoulders on down. As the energy slowly, like a stream, flowed down my body and into the ground. As the energy flowed, my muscles relaxed. Now I can explore more deeply about this and share with you again.
What new possibilities will now open up?
Please share your new awarenesses as you receive them so we may engage & expand together. Let's celebrate with each other as each new awareness brings us closer to the Truth of our Essence. How beautiful and worth celebrating is that??!!
