I love exploring the depths of consciousness in ways that I can functionally implement into my day. I don't want it to interrupt what I need or like to do, I will it to enhance my day. Meditation and being the conscious observer of your thoughts and feelings come in the depths of exercise, play, exploring nature and increasing your breathing.
The greatest part about it is your results won't lie to you. If you haven't been bringing meditation to the movements you do, that's a huge disadvantage. Likewise, if you haven't been making time for movement, your meditation may suffer.
WHY MOVEMENT MATTERS to MEDITATION
Yoga! Do you know what that means? No, it's not tight pants and elite stretches, it means union. Union especially with divinity, inner nature, god, highest self, the all, the great mystery... The purpose of yoga is to prepare the body to sit in meditation. It's not a means to an end, it's the beginning of the story which sets up the development and conclusion.
Yoga is in all that you do. If you don't bring mindfulness into the way you bend over to pick up a pencil... oh sorry, wrong decade, to pick up your smart phone, then you're making a passive decision to exclude your body from the awakening process. This is a mistake. Oh sorry, wrong spiritual language. This is a lesson. But you won't learn that lesson until injury or death bed. Okay, a bit dramatic but I hope you're picking up what I'm putting down.
So enjoy example video of trail running and tree climbing and the additional video with a few thoughts about why it matters that we explore our gifts and obstacles just the same way.
