My Experiments with Love – Day 18

Day 18 conclusions:

  • I love the feeling that comes from practising Dru.
  • The result through the day was stamina, calm and generosity
  • I am increasingly having a felt experience of how I can engage in love with myself and the world around me.

Once again I been woken from a nightmare, startled and alarmed at 4.25am, and once again returning to sleep was elusive. An hour of tossing and turning, with questions of finance and direction circling my fish-bowl mind, I got up and practised: sun salutation, EBR2, visualising the fish and warriors with breathing and a short yoga Nidra. Then sitting.

The revelation today was how much I love the feeling that comes from practising Dru. My body feels light and strong, my mind more focussed and my emotions more tranquil. Filling my whole spine with love, stopping at each centre and noticing what the expression of love might be at each centre, for me today. Quietening the chatter in my mind and energising my body.

The result through the day was stamina, calm and generosity – with myself as well as others.

As this experiment continues I am needing to remind myself less and the actual practice is more intuitive and less cognitive. Compassion, genuine and heartfelt compassion, seems to be effortless and judgement almost non-existent.

I am increasingly having a felt experience of how I can engage in love with myself and the world around me.
