Sunday Yoga – Knock on the Sky and Listen to the Sound

Knock the Sky and Listen to the Sky

Knock on the sky and listen to the sound.

– Zen saying

I think our local meteorologists might want to think about doing this. The past few days on the East Coast have been covered with threats of snow more than actual flakes on the ground. Now it seems that a blizzard is on the way.

We’ll see. It doesn’t matter though. I love the night before snow. The sky has a red glow.

Even though it was chilly I sat outside tonight so I could spend some time looking up.

A pre-snow meditation. As a kid I really enjoyed the night before a big storm. Looking back I was really present in those moments. Not waiting for the storm, but enjoying the cloud-filled sky.

 

2015 is my year of living mindfully.

Namaste y’all.

Sunday Yoga – Rain, Rain Don’t Go Away

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”

– Oscar Wilde

 

The forecast today calls for rain. I love rainy days. I don’t even mind riding my bike in the rain. I appreciate the cleansing aspect and that it gets the whole world a little quiet.

It’s only been in the past few years that I’ve acknowledged and embraced that I’m an introvert. I used to think that because I was comfortable being social, I had to be social. My sister said she’s heard it said that extroverts gain energy when they spend time around groups of people and introverts gain energy being by themselves.

Rainy days appeal to this introvert.

I can ride with my hood pulled over my face

and give a smile and wave as I ride down the street.

No time to chat gotta get inside,

I’m all wet!

Thanking the rain as I dry off.

 

Namaste y’all.
