Live From The Inside Out

Tulum story continued…

The first morning as I made my way down the sandy path to the yoga cabana, I felt the warmth of the sun and the smell of the sea and I felt at home.  I have always loved the sea and each time I return it feels like a homecoming. Although, 7:30 yoga class was a stretch for me, considering there were no telephones for a wake up call, but I arrived on time. 

An amazing young woman guided us through the yoga rituals.  The postures and positions were challenging, all centered on opening our hearts.  I could feel my energy change and a feeling of peace was all around me.  As we open our hearts we are most connected to our true selves, and we feel the love that we are.  A smile spread across my face.  Each time I return to this space, I wonder how I could have wandered so far away from me.

You see the past year had been a series of challenging and unpleasant experiences.  Throughout the year I wandered further away from me.  I became distracted by all the stuff and all the stories about the stuff.  I lost track of me again and wasn’t listening to that still small voice within.   I let my focus become the activities and experiences, instead of staying centered in my heart.  It has been my opportunity to balance the quiet, stillness of being with the craziness of the world. 

Now a new year and a new awakening….I am home again…and I want to stay in the space of peace.  The New Year began with a cleansing of the old, and now I saw how my physical cleansing, organic eating, and exercise were part of the adventure.  Clean out the old to make room for the new.  This is true physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  I then realized this week would be a week of dropping some heavy bags (experiences) I have been carrying, so I could continue my journey of awakening.

Each day through yoga I became clearer and more grounded. This resort, spa, or wilderness camp (whichever you choose to call it!) had a healing energy all of us could feel.  We became calmer and more peaceful, and even slower in our motions.
This place gave each of us the opportunity to transform.  Now who was truly ready?
Who would seize the opportunity?

Lesson two of my adventure was felt deep within my heart.  Living from the inside out, the presence revealed, creates the peace we long for.
