Hello my friends,
….more about nothing….
I was just teaching a lesson and again, nothing came up in conversation.
Nothing in the body is also a space where there is the absence of ego. It is the letting go of posturing and attitude. Postural attitude is part of what lets us and also other people know “who” we are. But we are more than that; posture is the external package that we show the world. We are also Beingness itself.
Is there a connection?
Letting go of muscular tension that contracts in to the joints allows for a little space. It literally creates space in the joints so that we move with ease.
First we stop – just Pause – and allow a little space. Try it…try lying down and postulating a little space in all your joints.
Nothing? I mean, nothing in the sense that nothing happens?
Or does something that is nothing happen? Is there a sense of relief or ease?
That physical space connects with a bit of inner ease. For a moment, let go of having to be You. Allow for the possibility for change.
It is a literal way to let ourselves Be. Not to always be presenting ourselves to the world, which is a lot of work if you stop a moment and think about it, but to take a step towards the totality of mind-body, psycho-physical Beingness.
You can always choose to pick up your old habits again; I promise!
Give a little space…
Try a little tenderness and be gentle with yourself today.
See what happens….maybe….nothing.
