I hope you are finding opportunities to be outside during these lovely warm days while the clearing tinge of crispness lingers in the air and the sun opens the space in your heart. The birds have been singing up a storm, with cardinal, goose and hawk sightings in the nature preserve and the sound of Owl resonating evening and morning.
These early days of spring are such a time of alternation. Just as the weather goes from cold, damp and windy to crisp, warm and sunny, the internal landscape is one day positive, focused, active and directed, the next day reflective and broody while internal resistance to the challenges of the transformative imperative surface.
Spring is so much about transformation. This is the season when we take action, when we are driven to make changes. As we come out of the period of internal reflection and planning, setting goals, we have the impetus to begin to actualize the dreams.
What are your dreams?
Just as the buds on the trees signal the health of the roots, our dreams reflect our energetic health. Our ability to dream, to create a vision for the future, to hold that vision, and to manifest it are enabled by the quality and quantity of our Qi, our essential energy. The best way to improve the quality and quantity of you Qi is through dual cultivation of essential nature and eternal life: spirit and body. The key is stillness. "Stillness is the root of the path". In stillness our essential energy is refined. Stillness can be achieved in the calm of meditation, it can also be found in the single-minded focus required of Tai Chi, in nature, carving time and space away from the distractions of worldly living.
Best wishes for wonderful dreams!
