Ride the waves of change.
Tending to transitions.
We look with uncertainty.
We look with uncertainty
beyond the old choices for
to a softer, more permeable aliveness which is every moment
at the brink of death;
for something new is being born in us
if we but let it.
We stand at a new doorway,
awaiting that which comes…
daring to be human creatures,
vulnerable to the beauty of existence. Learning to love.

I thank Arielle Schwartz for these musings on transitions, change and finding balance.
I hope they strike a chord in you too.
Tending to Transitions
Equanimity is defined as the ability to stand in the middle of intensity.
“Equanimity involves increasing your ability to stay present and be patient with uncomfortable experiences. Although the only constant in life is change, we so often brace against it. We fear that we will be out of control, groundless, and vulnerable. One way to establish equanimity in the midst of the flux of life is to return to the constancy of the breath, which can allow you to remain connected to your center even when there are elements of your life that are out of your control.” Therapeutic yoga for trauma
