Last night I threw my back out again. As a physical practice teacher this is a huge bummer to my ego. Had to call in my philosophical practice. The pain was excruciating and I could do nothing but lay in bed and breathe. Breathe in knowing that change brings on these back spasms and once I am grounded again they seems to disappear. . I have moved so many times in the last 6 year’s only to return to my “home base” in the South Bay and change has been my constant. Accepting life’s transitions has become commonplace. Almost so much that I forget to sit down, take a breath and process the letting go of my practice. With each move I let go of my attachment to people, jobs, locations and forge ahead. . This morning I woke up still in pain but went to work, grateful that I was able to get teaching jobs so quickly easing the “growing pains” of my transition. After class I was in my car reflecting...the back pain has subsided by this time and I began crying. It was a happy cry, like the kind you have when you can’t believe you have found the perfect place to be and the most beautiful people to surround yourself with...In gratitude to the gift that keeps on giving.
