IN THIS MOMENT AND THE NEXT, EMBRACE YOUR UNIQUE SOUL’S DANCES
These October days in Reno have been particularly delightful. I have often been in awe of these days of warmer-than-usual weather and the extreme beauty of the natural world all around us as the leaves of many colors do their glistening dances in the breezes and winds.
As I take in all this in, with soft eyes and an open heart, I know it is time to write to you about our Soul Dances. What is a Soul Dance exactly? And how is it different from merely appreciating the beauty around me?
These are wonderful questions because inherent within each of them is the opportunity to pause, to wonder, and to deepen into communion with this outer beauty that is our home in this world and then to deepen further into honoring the exquisite beauty within in our heart home.
As I have written about before, this practice is simply a matter of being aware of a desire to know our own soulfulness. We do this, as with the other practices, by exhaling all the mind stuff, the tensions, the busyness, the inhibitions, and sense of smallness through our sacrum and the soles of our feet and down into the earth. Breathe it all out with as many breaths as it takes. As you inhale, inhale freshness, newness, and spaciousness as your mind opens to more – to wonder, possibilities, and awe. This is the prelude, the preparation for what follows.
Now, with this relaxation and newness in place, look around you with soft eyes and vision that expands to take in as much of your surroundings as possible. Where does your attention linger? To the largeness of your environment or to the tiniest flower? Allow it to settle there and be in communion with All That Is as it is expressed in this moment. Continue in your quiet ways as you focus on the beauty of the next moment and the next and the next.
When you feel replete with the fullness of these experiences, find a comfortable place to turn within. Allow these precious images to appear in your mind’s eye - a second viewing. Then follow these images in your consciousness deeper into that spacious, radiant, stillness that is your own Inner Self. Allow the silence and the stillness to become you. The outer and the inner experiences are your Soul’s Dances for this time. Appreciate such luminosity and infinite abundance as you dance with the natural world and as you dance within yourself.
Each time we take a few moments to have such experiences, we become more soulful, more relaxed, and more at ease within ourselves and within our lives.
Enjoy your Everyday Soul Dances.
