Day 2: Morning Practice
I began this blog with the image of a rooster. Well, that’s me now, waking just before (or after ) dawn, moving to my newly created space in front of the southeast facing window of my bedroom where the sun comes up over my face, and doing my morning practice.
Why does this contribute to a life that is so amazing? Well, I have discovered the alchemy of morning meditation. And movement. Doing an integral spiritual practice has changed my life. I used to be (and still am) a lazy sort, a kind of “princess” mentality left over from the day. But doing a bit of exercise and a morning dedication with sitting still for more than 5 minutes (and I mean, this is torture) is truly life changing. It has taken me from a grumpy-withdrawn-not-morning-person, to a Fully-Alive-Human-Being who sings, skips, whistles and otherwise embarrasses my kids with shameless disregard for convention on a daily basis.
Happiness is the best revenge.
