It’s been a while since I exercised my body and mind to be still and calm.
I pray everyday; however, I find it extremely relaxing and soothing to practice the art of stillness while stretching and challenging my body – the very vessel of God.
Bunneh, my yoga instructor, holds classes fairly regularly. Having missed several, I’m glad I didn’t chicken out of this opportunity. It came at the right time having spent the day cooking and baking a birthday cake for my nephew, Siddy. Besides that, just feeling a bit of stress and anxiety creeping up from feelings left unchecked.
The call to silence was followed by a guided reiki session. We cleansed and healed our chakras with a focus on forgiveness and letting go.
I am Christian, not Buddist. However, I think it is wisdom to take goodness from all avenues. That is why I can look at this symbol of intentional calm and peace without flinching. It does bring a warming smile to my face.
