As I step into June, I do so with more fear than I have ever experienced before in my life. I am preparing to say good bye to my loving dad as he prepares his journey Home.
I find myself been drawn to the deeply real side of yoga, the teachings that require intense levels of in depth work. How does one release emotion while keeping the body and mind in a calm balance? I feel that if I let it all go I will spiral out of control and too much control will result in a dangerous descent into darkness.
So I drop into concentration (dharana) and meditation (dhyana) as soon as I feel the balance starting to slip.
I have come to realise just how insanely deep unconditional love can run through every fibre of one’s being.
When you can finally understand what makes a person’s smile light up a room. Why a hug can physically heal you. Why a person’s energy alone can make you feel loved and safe. This is unconditional love. My Dad had this magic.
May your journey through June be filled with unconditional love & may you share yours excessively.
