What a day of endings and beginnings. Thank you to the full house who came out tonight at Yogafly Studio - it felt so good to be with you all. I love you.
I have been thinking a lot about what it means to start a new 'chapter,' because that's what everyone says I'm doing. Nine days until we move back to California. My students today called me fearless. They described me as someone who seems limitless, no roof, just endless sky. Wow. Floored and honored, because that's the sort of feeling and state of being I crave. Do I love to question boundary? I do. Am I endlessly curious (obsessed?) with where one thing ends and another begins? I am. So where does this leave me now, in the nightfall of one political era? Where does this leave me, walking out the front door of a studio I labored and birthed and raised? I'll tell you where it leaves me: Right. At. That. Boundary.
This is the exact place I am so endlessly and internally researching. These transitions are the thing that keeps me going. Every death, every 'chapter' closing, even those that leave me on my knees in despair: this is what I'm here for. Even as I resist, and feel fear. This is it.
Peach, what will you do next? What will you make of THIS? I'm looking myself in the mirror asking these questions right now. Who can I rise into being? Am I limitless? What's possible? What can I pour my heart into tomorrow?
I know that I won't know exactly what's next until it's upon me, but it's crucial that I keep my eyes open as I traverse the gap. Like the spaciousness of the realm between sleeping and waking: the subtle dream state that brings us clarity and answers. That gap between night and day that we call dawn. This is when answers often come.
My prayer is one for deep trust and fierce forward momentum. My commitment is to my practices as disciplines of the heart and spirit. My oath is to myself and my children, that I will forge on courageously.
There's a great quote: 'Leap, and the net will appear.' May we all trust deeply into ourselves to take wild chances for what we believe is best. May we feel fearless when we need it.
