Live the Movement
The offer was on by my host, Yogendra, to try out the track at the new Meadows Rec Centre, located in his neighbourhood. With this agreeable proposal, I took to the 4.25 laps that make 1 kilometre. I completed my desired 6 km for a morning jaunt before my first engagement for the day.
I find it awkward to do the counter clockwise walk. I understand they alternate the direction each day.
I got a charge from the caption I read on the back of one woman’s tshirt, “Live Your Movement”, is what it said. I’m sure that this is a take on how you move your body, but this was a good message which I took as a queue to voice my feelings in regards to the movement that I’ve joined. Sometimes I’m a little concerned regarding some immature dynamics that I find go on even in a spiritual community. In my talk to the community, I mentioned that a person behaves at school, behaves at work (might even behave at home), but when in a devotional environment, it should not be the time to vent or to emote.
“In a spiritual setting it calls for shanti –peace.” To add to the message, I expressed that as long as humans come together, there will eventually be a collision of opinions. A decision needs to be confirmed in order to unlock an apparent stalemate. It is structure, a respected managing team, that carries the responsibility of breaking the dam that hinders the flow.
Now, I joined a movement which sometimes is on pause. I pray to be instrumental as much as possible, in pressing ‘play’ if not, ‘forward’. I pray to ‘live the movement’ and to practice what I preach.
May the Source be with you!
