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

 

PRACTICE

FEARLESS

 

PLAY

LIGHT
