It’s a new year, and with it a new-ness to everything. And I realize, that indeed, I am a beginner, again.
Larry Schultz used to say that the only difference between you and me, is that I have 63,000 Sun Salutes in my hands. Then he would hold out his large and spacious hands, and laugh his signature laugh. “Every day, I wake up,” he would say, “I am a beginner again.”
Today, I find myself very much a beginner again in all that I thought I mastered. In A Course in Miracles, lesson 7 – “I see only the past.” On my mat, moving through the Salutes with presence of my hands and feet, in my life as a mother, in my home – in this new country, a beginner learning a new language. Everything is new again, and I am beginning to understand what it means to be a beginner, again.
So I read my Purpose for being here, and continue breathing, being, and bending, deeply at times, to see that there is Light in all things, and when being a beginner is hard, I know that I am judging my process. The only difference between us, is the number of Sun Salutes in our hands. I can choose again, as a beginner, and simply observe the rising of the sun within me as I begin another year of Mastering….
Keep breathing friends, let’s join in being beginners this year: open, fresh, curious, new and Trusting that all things, are exactly as they should be.
With Love and Namaste,
