Anyone care to assist me? I need help customizing a fat loss functional strength based training circuit with body weight exercises and a jump rope. Hit me up here or kik me @ becomingwater.
But your path never leads you where you expect it. I am currently working a full time and a part time job while going to school full time. My personal time is…..scarce. I miss everyone here, so many wonderful lives being lived.
Does anyone know anything about sleeping Zen or have any experience with mudras? I don’t quite understand the purpose and practice of the mudras and would love some clarification.
Does anyone know anything about sleeping Zen? Falling asleep at night in Zen practice?
Also I would love some assistance.with mudras. I think im doing something wrong.
but you must never stop walking.
I have been noticing lately the seasons life seems to take. Happiness, anger, love, loneliness.A never-ending cycle.
My own life has been having it’s cycles but I am ever optimistic. You know, when I started this post I had so much more I wanted to say, but now I can’t seem to recall any of it, or care for that matter. It doesn’t matter. Life is a happy thing. It will suck, but it is a happy thing.
Many things are change (aren’t they always?) in my life. I lost my job. I am currently looking for another. This has severely effected some aspects of my life, and not a bit of others.
Martial Arts is taking a pause since I cannot afford the class at the moment, however, practice practice practice.
I fell into a sort of depression here lately. I have let things pile up because of it. My house is a mess. Papers are not filed. My fitness and diet have suffered. I then thought of something. If you can change something, don’t worry about it. If you can’t change something, don’t worry about it.
I need to clean my life, and my house. Get rid of the garbage, put things in their place, wipe away the stains of yesterday.
Ever feel like you wear two faces? Or more? I do. I am not a liar or anything of the sort, the many faces I wear would be the face of the husband, supportive and caring of his wife, the father, nurturing and watchful of his daughter, the aspiring scientist, studying the wondering how to pay for education. The martial artist, finding a balance of fitness and technique, the Zen practitioner, find solace in mindfulness, the atheist, skeptical of the world and protective of his beliefs.
So many faces…
I often fantasize about living in a sort of sustainable commune. I would continue my education and practices (funding them somehow) and become a wonderful scientist, but at home tend my garden or farm , chop wood, and barter in my community, but to do that would be to belong to two worlds, is this possible? I fantasize a lot.
Speaking of such…That’s another vice I am having problems curbing. I am happily married and I do not, nor would I ever cheat, and that is the issue since my significant other is…well…not as sexual as I am.
Oh the many paths of life.
My wife is a practicing pagan and is vegetarian. I have always been a devout omnivore but recently began considering vegetarianism, or an aspect of it. I have a birth defect which requires, to an extent, a controlled diet. I am not doing it for beliefs, but for health, so I would maintain my ingestion of dairy, eggs, and fish, but nothing else. (I cannot have soy.)
That is all. Thoughts?
I am finding my path to be fairly adventurous. I know I have been lacking in posts but I want you all to know I haven’t abandoned my path. I love you all and miss you dearly. How is your life?
I have not abandoned my path. I have not forgotten about you all. The funny thing about paths, isn’t it? They are hardly convenient. ^_^
I have not forgotten you! I am currently in the process of reorganizing my life. I am still considering a week long vacation from the outside world to work on thing here. I am doing my best to follow the philosophy of water. Be fluid - adapt, be constant - flow, and be humble - settle yourself. I find it fascinating. Water comes with a philosophy, everything in nature does. Fire, earth, air, plants, animals. In doing you may even find that a lot of the qualities overlap. I cannot say for certain. Namaste!
How are your personal philosophies developing?
All for your kind words and support. I must not live in the past with regret, but in the now where I still have action.
Going to meditate now then practice.
