It's quiet in the woods today: no wind, no birds, no insects. Occasionally during my T'ai Chi Chih practice I heard the sound of a passing car. And then, nothing.
This silence is exactly what I need as my mind is spinning with too muchness. Oh, to be in the midst of nothingness ... nowhere to go, nothing to do. And that is exactly where I was during today's TCC practice. I felt my body relax, my body and mind slow, my senses open, and my ability to be in the present expand.
Ahhh . . . lovely.
