I ALLOW MYSELF TO KNOW THIS MOMENT, HER GIFTS — Apprenticeship to Love: Daily Meditation for the Sacred Masculine, Feb 28 Today’s practice: three minutes considering this question: How are you allowing the new of this moment to fill you with wonder and awe? See below… M y playlist while writing today’s meditation: Uum Kultum, Alf Leila We Leila https://music.apple.com/ca/album/alf-leila-we-leila-remastered/923064696?i=923064747 My morning practice: 1.5 hours including warm-up for the lower triangle, followed by Sudarshan Chakra meditation, and Linking to the Infinite pranayama (breath practice) My vulnerability practice: I breathe and I slow down and I allow myself to stand, tenderly, in this new moment -Hans Peter Meyer MY MEDITATION Yesterday, a moment when I didn’t write. When I attended to family. Thank you for your patience. And now, I think about allowing these moments to refresh me, to touch me with tenderness. It is by now a spiritual commonplace, that every moment is new. It is also a commonplace, at least in my life, that I too often moving too fast, or too protectively, to allow myself to experience the rawness of this new moment. Much safer to move swiftly over it, stay with familiar feelings and sensations than to become vulnerable, tender to this new moment. And so it is with every experience of the feminine, especially in the form of my beloved. I know this woman. I know myself. But, with every breath, she is new to me. I didn’t know her before this moment, not properly. And so it is very important that I slow down. That I notice her breath, that I match her breath, and that I become even slower. Perhaps, slowing myself, I won’t misunderstand who stands in front of me? Perhaps I won’t misunderstand myself. I practice to experience this new moment. This new woman in front of me. This new self that stands across from her. This moment is new to both of us. It is always so. But, moving impatiently towards my goals, my wants, I miss everything. Almost. This I know. This is what experience has taught me, and why it is important to learn from experience, to feel regret, and to practice to go beyond the limitations of the past moments. This I know: She — the woman in front of me, the divine feminine — will not be rushed. The gifts She brings will only reveal themselves to the man who knows patience and depth. And so I practice. Every day. Sometimes, like yesterday, I don’t write about it, but still I practice. And I allow something new to be born, in its own time. TODAY’S INSPIRATIONS 🌀Make an offering of your Love, messily, humbly, and whole-heartedly, through art and creativity, grief and praise, merging your individual life with THE Life that lives us all, reminding us of our shared humanity, and inviting us home to the heart of what matters most. (Nina Lombardo, @wayofdevotion) 🌀To have any influence over… — the very core of your being — you must be a master of compassion and forgiveness…releasing the moments of the past that occupy any of your energy. This delivers your awareness to the clarity of a new presence and builds from the brand new light shining through this fresh health. …The current moment, also known as presence, is the health within all new beginnings. Beginnings are made up of this healthy fresh light of brand new hope, insights, and solutions to everything. (Guru Singh and Guruperkarma Kaur, Crystal Solutions) 🌀The Conscious Warrior practices the cultivation of wonder and awe. (John Wineland, Precept 7) SUGGESTED PRACTICE In a few days I’ll be releasing a new practice on the podcast. It is about balancing the masculine and feminine energies within ourselves. It is also about allowing the Infinite (the never-ending feminine) to reveal Herself. Today, however, I invite you to take three minutes to… sit, spine firm but not stiff, chest lifted gently, eyes closed, breathing slowly through the nose deep into your belly, so deep that your pelvic floor feels the fullness of your belly. Just breathe. Slowly filling your belly. Slowly exhaling and softening the front of your body. After three minutes, write for one minute on this question: What are allowing to be new? How are you allowing the new of this moment to fill you with wonder and awe? #apprenticeshiptolove #pathofthesacredmasculine #husbandman #dailymenswork
