Back in September I had a bit of an issue with my health. It came back up these last couple of weeks before Christmas. Thankfully everything is fine. Again.
Like a lot of experiences, this brought into sharp focus that you really never know the minute. And while it’s easy (and very normal) to get caught up in imagining and fearing the worst – and I’m as guilty as anyone else for diving down that hole – the other thing I noticed was occasional, fleeting moments of intense colour and beauty. Of seeing more clearly (like in 3D technicolour!).
I had a vague sense that this might be a hint of what it is to be truly alive, to drop fully into our human experience. Just for a moment.
And it got me thinking, what if, with the help of yoga, I could try to be more wholly and fully in my life more often? To really show up for whatever’s going on.
Where do I even start?
