Today I started my One class talking about how my glasses, or lenses, are being insignificant. We all have glasses we put on and see our life, experiences and relationships through. We can find clues to what our glasses are by noticing when we get triggered, how we react and respond and even what our motives are for our actions.
So today I spoke about something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. What if I just let myself be insignificant? Maybe I would actually be more in my joy if released the need to feel significant and also quit fighting against my feelings of being insignificant. Because honestly it’s exhausting and takes up too much energy.
As class went on I was speaking to the fact that contrast in our bodies (and nature) actually creates harmony and balance. When working on balance, we energetically extend in the opposite direction of our movement and we can be held in space and find balance with ease. Reaching forward as we roll down helps us control our movement and at the same time strengthen us at our core.
Something really beautiful happened by the end of the class, though. I felt the need to neither be significant nor insignificant. I had explored those ideas and feelings in my mind for the last few days pretty intensely, but it wasn’t until I really moved them through my body that I was able to let them both go. By the time I was laying with my hand over my heart in Savasana I had this really special moment of just being with myself. Maybe it was the contrast I allowed myself to explore. Maybe it was the power of the mind, body and spirit aligning. Maybe it was because I got out of my head and into my body. Whatever it was, I actually felt both significant and insignificant and it felt like I was in balance.
So if you want to try playing with contrasts for yourself, it may go something like this depending on your glasses:
☀️I don’t have to matter to a lot of people to still matter.
☀️I am deeply loved, even if people don’t like me.
☀️I am strong enough for what my life asks of me, and I can rest when I need to.
☀️I can feel good about where I’m at, even if I’m not where I want to end up.
☀️I don’t have to be doing big things for the things that I’m doing to matter greatly.
☀️I can feel completely uncertain about my life and also trust that I am on my path.
Thanks for the space to process and share what I’m going through. How are you all feeling right now? Lots of love to you all!
