I Am Better For The Trekking!
through desolation and consolation….pause in the midst of trekking
Inspiration IS Gentle
Recently in my lack of motivation to exercise someone said to me, “You’ll get your second wind.” I replied, “I think my second wind has come and gone!” Thankfully, the Pause Practice keeps me trekking with yet another wind.
Yesterday while waiting to pick up some dinner, I realized the fitness center where I “work it all out” on occasion, was right there too. “NOOOOOOO”, I felt. Then I paused. I stepped back from my resistance. Paused again for Inspiration. Hmm, I am willing to use two machines for my torn rotator cuff therapy. I strolled on over and did it! Inner Wisdom did not push, shove, and drag me over to the gym, throw me onto a machine, and yell at me to exercise. It was all quite gentle and accomplished with ease. How?
Here’s the “Access Code to Pause for Inner Wisdom”:
W I L L I N G N E S S
I was willing to release my feelings about exercising and preconceived notions of what constituted “enough exercise” such as: must go for at least 30′, must increase my heart rate, must use willpower, guilt….NOPE, WILLINGNESS! My guidance can also be to not exercise.
This is me after working out!!!
I AM WILLING PAUSE PRACTICE
Without this statement in each of the 4 flows of the Pause Practice, there would be no pausing!
I am willing to experience my calm, quiet mind.
I am willing to allow room for Another Way.
I am willing to receive Inspiration.
I am willing to be Inspired.
