BREAKING PATTERNS

OUR DIFFICULTIES show art OUR DIFFICULTIES

Lumen

In this podcast I talk about two students who are confronting resistance to difficulty. There is irritation in my voice and I took the podcast down, worried they would hear that instead of the passion I have for the pivot point they are in. However, I'm putting it back up largely because my acupuncturist urged me to put it out there saying that it's my job, as a teacher, to be slightly irritating, that it can bring value, movement, and growth in places of stagnation, if students choose to take it that way.

Our body is our unconscious, any good practice will reveal what is there. When the unconscious comes up to the surface it is an opportunity for healing. We often experience resistance to feeling this stuff and develop strategies to avoid it. We can also develop a process of being in engagement with the encounter and through that, heal and develop a sense of stability that is not dependent on the outer world of circumstances.

In this podcast I talk about developing the strength that makes us consistent, dependable, and gives us integrity as human beings. It is the strength to keep on keeping on. It involves mastery as well as stability. You become like a rock or a mountain. You feel grounded in the world because you are grounded in your own self. The power that comes from this rhythmic existence is a kind of balance, harmony, and wholeness. It gives us the strength to handle both success and failure. We balance our needs.
