Set For Life
I began to play with this, noticing when I relax and that sense of wonder and oneness flows and noticing other times, even when resting, that I hold tension. I recall Tara Brach’s story in her book Radical Acceptance. As a student of Buddhism she tried hard to get it “right” and her teachers repeatedly told her to simply relax.
During my retreat, I had a few glimpses of what happens when we really relax, a sort of delicious falling into nothingness and allness all at once that disappears the moment I realize it. “Learn to relax,” Tara’s teachers said. Such simple words. Such a challenge to do. “If you can relax in any position, you will be set for life.”
Blessings of the New Year to you,
