This morning, I was in the middle of my stretching in the supine position, half there and half somewhere else. As I was looking for a way to make this daily practice more alive, I thought to myself, “today is the last day of my life.”
I’m pretty sure my eyes were more open. And it felt as though my skin, my largest organ, was more open and alive.
And I thought, it could be the last day. One day it will be true.
It didn’t make me think I would rather be doing something else, I should go back to sleep. After all it was 5:30 am, and I had been up for an hour already. It made me think, actually, I want to be doing this. I want this moment to say that I love myself, and I am here with myself. That’s why I’m on this mat, because this truly takes care of my day.
I put more care and intimacy in the moment during this morning’s practice. No ego, just love, and it was good.
