The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
Their wisdom was unfathomable.
There is no way to describe it;
all we can describe is their appearance.
They were careful as someone crossing an iced-over stream.
Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
Courteous as a guest.
Fluid as melting ice.
Shapable as a block of wood.
Receptive as a valley.
Clear as a glass of water.Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?
The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment.
Not seeking, not expecting,
she is present, and can welcome all things
Good Morning dearest yoga students,
This verse from the Tao Te Ching challenges us to live an unhurried life. To be careful, alert, courteous, fluid, shapable, receptive and clear. It asks us to be present and aware of our actions and reactions but to be open to what the flow of life is offering us. To “remain unmoving till the right action arises” is not easy by any means. Our media driven society is often targeting our fears and prompts us to do more, be more, work harder in order to acheive, be fullfilled, be happy. The Tao offers us another way. To become part of the flow of life, not to be stagnant or uninvolved, but to be still enough so that life simply is living moment to moment, letting go of past and future to find our own calm center.
When we work to become empty of expectation, life presents us with the opportunities we need; resources magically appear, ideas become realities and coincidences become miracles not by paniky pushing, but by becoming still enough so that you flow with the tide of life’s events. Our dreams and desires rarely materialize exactly how and when we plan but if we open to all things that our life presents, one day we wake up and we are living our dreams. All we have ever hoped for is right there in front of us. Try and get quiet for a few minutes right now and meditate on all the things the divine plan has brought into your life. Allow peace and serentity to flow in with your breath and let go of striving and expectation as you exhale. Let your entire being rest in the light of gratitude for everything that is flowing in and through you on this day feeling as “receptive as a valley and clear as a glass of water”.
