A warm chat with my colleague Klana around riding the rollercoaster of life...
As someone with a penchant for extremes I like to explore the pull of my impulses to whatever gems of wisdom they (eventually) lead me to.
That approach can at times be a pretty painful and bumpy road - but for me it’s either living with passion, or not really living at all.
Tantra teaches to not suppress or do only what you ‘should’ do - but to explore as best you can both sides of life, the highs and the lows, to allow yourself to find your middle. Not through force or rigidity, will power or control. Not by damning one side of life as being ‘wrong’ and creating a duality. But by finding how to flow freely within a polarity - one way, then the other, and settling between two extremes as desired in each moment. Knowing you can take or leave either of them if you wish.
Everything about my work here is based essentially around this one question : how to find our freedom? And as far as I understand it, it’s to be in choice each moment. To be aware of our patterns and habits and be able to choose new ways of experiencing ourselves and the world around us in those crucial moments where it matters.
And that’s a whole lifetime of learning to look forward to... seemingly endless layers to the onion that is our ‘self’ to dig through in order to find what’s real. What’s of actual value.
Corona and the new way of living that is emerging through the changes we are experiencing in some way has the potential to bring us back into our roots, closer in context with our bodies, nature, the earth that supports and nourishes us.
I am forever grateful to this life and it’s precious gifts in all their forms - light and dark.
May our journeys be blessed in the beauty way ✨
