Could you teach me how to connect with myself in a deeper way?
How does one answer this question? As I contemplated it, I began to realize there is no lengthy curriculum or essay. In truth, the reply is quite simple, and flowed rather beautifully as I allowed something beyond my thoughts to guide me.
I’m not sure there is a way to ‘teach’ anyone how to become more intimate with oneself, however what I can do is share with you what I have learned along the way. It begins with the breath. Taking that moment, being still, letting the air surround you and just focusing fully on your heart. Visualize it, imagine yourself in that space, breathe into it and let it become larger than you. Practice this regularly. And when you’re comfortable enough, focus on hearing what is there. No matter how simple or great. Just listen. Allow. BE.
The answer lives in the simplest of practices, doesn’t it dear loved ones?
