“Patience comes to the bones before it takes root in the heart” ~Mary Oliver
“O Soul, we have positively appear’d–that is enough.” ~ Walt Whitman
Some days I practice with my bones. Aligning. Arranging.
Some days I practice with my muscles. Stretching. Strengthening.
Some days I practice with my organs. Twisting. Toning.
Some days I practice with my mind. Measuring. Moving.
Some days I practice with my breathe. Calming. Centering.
Some days I practice with my heart. Listening. Loving.
Each time, I arrive.
Sometimes openly. Softly. Curiously.
Other times methodically. Distractedly. Honestly.
Always striving to be purposeful, persistent and patient.
What I feel in my bones, I hope will eventually resonate in my mind. In my heart.
This is why I practice.
To do the what. To feel how. To arrive at where. To know why.
Quite frankly, I still have no answers. No solutions. No idea. I am still just me.
And for now, that is enough.
Peace, love and Namaste,
P.S. Practicing patience might just be paying off… I am teaching at a beautiful studio called Mirepoix in Wicker Park this Friday! I am over the moon and it is going to be full! Message me if you would like to come as my guest ❤
