Winds of Change
Settling in a bench, I became aware of my breathing. I became aware of the support the bench and ground gave me. With each in breath, I began to relax my body. With each out breath, I began to relax my mind. Thinking of what inspiration feels to me, my body woke up with a sense of aliveness.
Sensing this aliveness as I listened to Nitima’s soothing voice, I began to sense butterflies in my belly, giving me a slight uneasiness. Inquiring why I felt inspired, yet somewhat nervous, my application for a meditation teacher program that I am currently working on came to my mind. Could it possibly be that I am nervous of trusting myself to take this leap of faith into the unknown? Could it possibly be a fear of rejection? Could it possibly be that if I am accepted into the program that I am nervous of Becoming?
Pondering these questions in my mind that I didn’t expect would come up while listening to this meditation, I began hearing Nitima’s beautiful words come back into my awareness and I was taken back to the here and now. I sensed a new easiness in my body as I felt a strong warm breeze surround me. I opened my eyes, looked around my surroundings and saw the trees, plants and flowers swaying in this warm breeze. As I continued to watch, I couldn’t help but think...could it possibly be that the Universe is trying to tell me something?
