Savasana: My blog has been in corpse pose

March 21, 2013

Savasana, the corpse pose in yoga, is the rest at the end of your yoga practice. Its not really about being dead or even acting like the dead. It is resting so deeply that the mind is at rest.

My blog as been in this state of rest. I’ve been resting from deadlines, from newsletters, from toiling away at the computer,  from jumping out of my hiding place, right back to where it is safe and quiet and in Body, in present time and healing space. Blogging is a strange world. It’s a lot of thinking and writing at the computer, although I could write my blog on paper and then type it on the computer. But I have the feeling it might… just… not… ever… happen that way.

So here I am again.

I took a break from venturing out in my attempt to reach people and share what I do in the world, to share what I love and what I’m creating in my life. I didn’t really understand how to get my blog out and read by people. I do thank my friends and family for their support in reading my blog but that is where it stopped. Sometimes I’d get a random hit on the most popular blog post I have written so far,”Projection, Perception and Communication.”

I didn’t start the blog for the sake of becoming well-read. Despite not reading for the sake of being read, I did feel that I was talking to myself at times. It’s much easier to do that in my journal by my bed. I don’t have to edit it or find pictures and tag words!  I started the blog so I had a place to share my exploration of myself, and to teach while learning. I teach what I want to learn. It began with teaching yoga and now my learning has expanded into so much more, including blogging. See my first blog about my “Intent.”

My first yoga teacher, Diane Wilson, suggested reviewing my intention with teaching periodically as I went through my official training to teach yoga. Intention can easily be lost. Especially on the path of healing to wholeness. So with this rest, I bring compassion for my self while I sure have been through a lot since the last blog I actually wrote. It is as if lifetimes have been resolved in a few years!

Sometimes, I learned the hard way, in day-to-day experience without realized support, my head buried in the sand. Other times, I remembered to use the tools that I have learned. It’s getting easier and easier to remember and believe the support that I have had all along.

With gratitude, I pass it on…
