Bali 2017

Silent earth. When you look at this stillness, what do you see? The great beauty of this earth, the capacity to reflect, its source as mother to nourish and teach us.

Do you see yourself mirrored? The religions of the world say that if we are attentive we will see that we are a microcosm of everything else. We forget that and, instead are self-concerned, anxious and fearful.

We forget what we are capable of, our capacity for life and change. That the world around us can and will nourish and sustain us and all living creatures if we can trust and not be greedy. Our energies are caught up in a war between fear and our potential.

Listen to the silence of the earth. We too need a quiet, centred  heart, to see and to be. Mostly our attention is caught in the mud. We cannot see our reflection, our gaze too low.

If we are composed of stardust it is the dust we focus on, not the starlight!

Yogasanas want us to lift our gaze, to live with more awareness and freedom. They teach us that we too can be exactly like this place, quiet, still, but with life going on, a place where there may be peace and contentment.
