365 Challenge Day 250 – Intention

26 Mar

It’s funny that I’m debating about whether I should buy bird seed or not.

This weekend my yoga teacher told a story in the training and in class.  She went to visit her brother, and there were all sorts of birds and animals that came to his backyard all week.  She said it took her about five days to realize that he was feeding all of them and had about 24 bird feeders in his backyard!  (well, she tends to exaggerate, lets say he had a lot.)  This was such as powerful metaphor for her.  If you want birds, you have to put out the bird feeders.  She even quoted the Field of Dreams, “build it, and they will come”  (personally I thought that was a really stupid movie, but I like the quote.)

I’m thinking about that.  What are the areas in my life that I want something to happen, and I just need to create the right conditions for it to happen?

365 Challenge Day 225 – The Body

31 Jan

I came across this quote today, and I love it:

“If you are divided from your body, you are also divided from the body of the world, which then appears to be other than you or separate from you, rather than the living continuum to which you belong.”

This is by author Philip Shepherd, from his book New Self, New World.  I hadn’t heard of him before, so I looked him up.  There is a five minute video in which he explains the premise of the book, and I find it fascinating.

This really resonates with my experience and my understanding of how detrimental living from the “brain” can be, when not connecting to the body.  This is one of the main reasons I switched my primary practice from sitting meditation to yoga.  I heart yoga ❤

I have mentioned before that even though I’ve been Buddhist for as long as I can remember, I’m having a hard time connecting with some of the practice and community lately.  This quote by Shiva Rae really sums it up for me.  Spiritual practice should be “dancing with change”, finding the playfulness and the joy.  Silent meditation teaches us to find stillness within the stillness, but we can attached to that silence if we don’t learn to bring it back out into the world.  Yoga teaches us to find stillness within the chaos that is life.
