The fullness of life is only felt when we participate fully.
As I was swimming this morning, there was a moment when I felt ‘one’ with the water. I felt its softness and flexibility. I became aware of its ability to move with me and its openness to accommodate my every move. As I swam with it, I felt my body relax and allow this union of life.
I understood, how I participate and move with life was either leading me to experiences of fullness and deep learnings or suffering. I realized it was me that was consciously or unconsciously deciding that. I saw when I fully participated in my suffering and in my joy, I began to feel this fullness.
I understood that when I gave space to these experiences, it opened an awareness in me. I saw that when I stepped back to contemplate my participation, I could create changes and learn to move into these experiences more fully.
To all my beautiful bloggers, may your Christmas and your holiday experiences ahead be full of love and peace, and may you move with it all easily.
