I just read Tracy’s post about being aware of the personalities in your own self – how important it is to be mindful and in the ‘now’ instead of always living in the past or trying to fly into the future.
It reminds me of what I gleaned from T’ai Chi and Bikram Yoga (yes, I’m on about Bikram again). Life is a practice. You just do it again. Then you do it again. Then once more – make a small change – think about the movements and don’t get distracted with what’s going on in the peripherals. Then you do it again. Then once more. Than again. There’s no race, no ‘end’, nothing to ‘get to’ – you’re there – you just do it again. Lather, rinse, repeat.
I love that about both T’ai Chi and Bikram Yoga – it just repeats but it’s always different. The different is from within me – the world will turn regardless of what I do – so I need to be the ‘difference’ in my life. I crave repetition with change. For me – that is what my life is. Repetition with change. I just do it again.
My life is my practice. I always have another chance to do it again. Always.
