The universe is in constant motion – holding on means getting stuck
First I want to apologise for not having kept up to date with my calendar articles. April was healthwise not a good month for me (like for many others I could imagine), but I am now getting back to ‘normal (whatever that is), even though my energy is still a bit flagging.
So, no more excuses – here it goes…
Isn’t it funny that last year, when I made the calendar, I should have chosen the topic of ‘Movement’ for a month when everybody’s movement would be so much restricted by this worldwide virus? Moving when being physically so ‘tied down’ becomes very difficult. How do you exercise when you can’t leave the house or are ill or depressed, and when you are dealing with massive changes to your daily routine? Fear, anxiety and frustration can stop you in your tracks, make you feel hopeless and give up, and feeling isolated and alone does not help a bit.
BUT, the world has not stopped spinning, the universe is still in constant motion – which we can see from reports around the world of nature recovering, breathing a sigh of relief. Perhaps in some ways we create too much movement (I am not talking about exercise now), upset the balance and had to be slowed down to give us time to stop and think?
Movement is only beneficial and recognizable with periods of rest and peace in-between. Even though we may not be physically active, life is still moving, thoughts are still in motion, nature is still going through the seasons. So you see, we are never really totally without movement as it has so many different faces in this world. As we seem to be so focused on physical movement, the current situation can make us feel very stuck indeed (and afraid). But looking at movement in a wider sense – moving on, moving forward, moving away from…, moving with… - there are still so many ways of movement open to us that we really do not have to feel boxed in. On the contrary, restrictions can get your creative juices flowing to find new ways of moving and living – quite exciting really.
So, keep moving, rise to the challenge and enjoy the dance.
My articles are not meant to be lectures or advice. My words are simply musings, perhaps helpful thoughts unsupported by science though they may contain some scientific facts. They come from my life experiences and make sense to me, and I hope they may make some sense to you too. Behind me lie years of experimenting, constantly trying to improve myself and my life. Before me lie (hopefully) some more years of learning and ‘getting it right’. So you see, I am no expert. I am merely giving an account of some of the ways that may make this life a little bit happier and comfortable for whoever can be reached in this way. If I can make just the smallest positive difference in one person’s life, I have reached my goal.
