The first meditation that was able to grab ahold of me and show me its power was a walking meditation. We walked along in silence gathering elements that spoke to us. The most impactful part of the meditation for me was at the end, when we were encouraged to grab a paint brush as a way to transcend yet another form of yoga far beyond the mat or postures. What I experienced was that same joy i call to mind riding my bike as a child.
It is so simple and so free. As a result months later I made my "tool bench" my "today I am an artist" bench.
It will be some time before the artist emerges, however expression of feeling is something we all possess and it doesn't require training or expertise. It simply calls us to be open. I can't tell if tonight was an expression of feeling or more so a journey to determine what exactly the feeling was that stayed with me all week. Either way, this too, is yoga.
