falling...it's like flying

September 28, 2019

'the asanas are useful maps to explore yourself, but they are not the territory' Donna Farhi


It really isn't about shapes


It's about the space between


That sweet pause between the inhale and exhale


The place between flying and falling


Falling can feel like flying when you know how; a little like falling in love


That place when you're not sure how you're going to land; on easy terrain, or crashing down. But that's all part of the process


And the beautiful part is that the four corners of this magic carpet aka mat, allow us to practice falling over and over


So what was once super freaking scary, is now easy breezy


Let each shape. Each dive. Every corner, angle, curve, sweep, gesture, bind; every single second be a training ground for learning how to laugh and smile at the fearfully impossible


Let each shape lead you to playing light


Who cares if you fall from a balance? Or tremble? That's life coursing through your veins


We are all afraid of falling


But you've got to fall to fly


There was a time when you learnt to walk


Go back to that state; it wasn't like you gave up upon falling the first time


There was a time when you learnt to love


Go back to that state; it wasn't like you thought it was all going to end in disaster


You've got to fall in flow


You've got to know that eventually, no matter how, you'll catch yourself


And in the space in between, fall light or heavy; but feel, breathe and sink into every single delicious moment


This is the training. To learn that falling is scary; but it's all okay


It's all meant to be
