In a world that's spinning out of control, how do you hold your center?
Well written. Binging awake in the present moment and living there is no easy task, but that is where we find ourselves and can live in peace with out interference from the outside world
Slowing down and observing the world as it truly is, leads me to more peace and understanding. I find that when I move too quickly, I get blinded either by the content in front of me, or by my own glossy expectation I project on those around me. Finding center is always about returning to awareness, no matter how difficult is may be in our crazy world. Such wisdom in this post, thank you :)
So much sense and groundedness spoken here, perfect. Brilliantly said.
Ah, yes, keen discussion on centering. Funny story, regarding how one persons center cannot by definition be the same as anothers, without dizzying ramifications. (the art of partnership/couples?)
I was in love with a fellow. We were at a playground, deserted, at dusk. We decided to ride the merry go round much like the one pictured. I got on, towards the center, and after doing some push offs so did my friend. He made his way to the middle too, and there we were just feet apart lookin at each other. Then, tragically, we decided to lean in for a kiss over the center of the merry go round. We were successful, but immediately both had the most horrible nauseous sensation, and I mean immediately.
We both cried out 'Aaaaeeehhhhooowowww' and jumped off the merry go round. Lesson, I encourage others to give it a try if you don't believe me. You cannot SHARE the center with someone else, to each his and her own center, indeed. Best
