Heaven and earth 2

Since last week I’ve had craving for a deeper dig into this topic.
So I’ve done more classes on the matter, as results I know have my own inner apple tree :)
My spine has turned into the tree and my heart and head is filled with flowers, fruits and leaves and I can feel the wind that moves me.
I love it!

Heaven and earth

My colleague gave me the idea to work with heaven and earth in my classes, to explore it in the asanas.
So I did. It’s not anything I was taught to do, so it really is an sensing, testing and feeling thing. But,, I found that the balance poses actually have both elements in them, so we worked with vrikshasana and natarajasana, it was beautiful to sink into the soil while my heart and head is lifting and surrounded by birds and sky ;) I also had a exiting experience to work with the sun salutations, but instead of doing the plank pose, we solidly lay down our whole body on the ground, in the earth and slowly bullied up into bhujangasana and than into the upward facing dog and back into normal sun salutation, that was so special to me. The grounding feeling was so deep, that the start and the end was like flying! It had a polarising effect. I love to exchange ideas for what to work with in my classes.

I love that I have friends and know artists (here; van Morrison) that always seems to find, yet, another angel at words or thoughts, I'm blessed to be able to hear, it turns into a picture of how I can't trust what meaning I put into words,, and out of this grows a picture of how rich reality is, of possibilities, opportunities.
Maybe I recognize the songs words (below) as my spirits word to the self, to ease it's ending.
Not to end, but to support the ending that sometime appears.
I’m thankful for the reminding not to rush, to love what already is..the present
Sometime I think it's too much - even though I recognize the truth in my "god self "to be real, and my other self as a story, my world just starts to whirl.
So let me be the whirling dervish in the dance of my life.
I see this dance of lunacy (the one-legged, the headless and the backwards), all fools can join and grab hands and circle around and around each other in a stomping waltz ;)

Let go into the mystery
Let yourself go
There is no other place to be
Baby this I know
You've got to dance and sing
And be alive in the mystery
And be joyous and give thanks
And let yourself go

You've got to open up your arms
To the sun
You know you've got so many charms
It's just begun
Trust what I say and do
What you're told
And surely all your dirt will turn into gold
