December 8 – Dharma (The Path)

Wandering can be good for the over-focused creative. How did you wander well this year?m
m
WANDER – 1 : to move around or go to different places usually without having a particular purpose or direction ▪ 2 : to follow a path with many turns ▪ 3 : to go away from a path, course, etc.

I wandered far and wide. I let go of checklists and listened to my own inner rhythms. Whether I was still or in motion, sitting in my room or meditating on the passing scenery as I sat serenely on a bus, train or plane, I wandered and wondered.
m
Here’s a poem I wrote during Reverb10:
m

Wonder is
living in questions.
How can I unfold?
What if I don’t grasp?
What if it doesn’t matter what happens?
Who is my best self, after all?
What is my intention for this day?

No plans, no goals.
Openness. Honesty.
Can I stay open?
Can I let my heart keep shining?
How do I practice metta + mindfulness?
What is life but motion from moment to moment?

  1. I bought the yoga passbook that let me economically try out a lot of different studios in NYC. I was looking for a new studio to get my 300-hour teaching training and I found ISHTA yoga through this process. I am excited to start their program in 2012!
