The Beauty and Fluidity of Movement
I dedicate this post to the beautiful people I spent part of my evening within a virtual space on discord. We talked about Tai Chi, Radical Self-Love, Sexual Wellness, and so much more. The following people I met have helped guide me a little further as I open the door and embark upon the practice of Tai Chi. I Give thanks and I send energies of Love to: @naturalmedicine @thetreeoflife, @riverflows, @metametheus, @immarojas.
As the lotus blossom rises from the murky waters
It is a living entity of nature that moves beyond obscure boundaries
It moves upward and breaks free. It moves through the element of air
As it unfolds its petals slowly and gracefully
Whether consciously or unconsciously we all move
And we engage in a lifetime affair with the air as we move through it.
And for those days that we as humans in our physical agony seek solace
As we struggle in the dark night of the soul
Searching for rest and peace and recovery from what we have lost.
Come what may somehow we find our way
“When the heart weeps for what it has lost, the soul rejoices for what it has found”
Even from the darkest of our days…..we Move on.
And I bow in honor
Of the beauty and fluidity of movement
And to all the Walkers of the Air,
That are conscious of each breath and each step
And they know the benefits of the connection to space and air.
It is you 'Walkers of the Air' that also give back
By way of the divine art, you display
A movement of ancient design as you embark upon a journey of a thousand miles
And by taking the first step, the first pose your journey begins.
You express messages of Peace, Serenity, Wholeness, Bliss, and Zen
Every time you enter in by reaching and taking that first step and then another
By bending, squatting and settling into a pose
Falling into ranks of the ancients of old, discovering secret antidotes yet to unfold
That will come to you as you practice consistently
And moving from apprentice to the middle path of the advanced
And if you dare, you will give of yourself for a lifetime knowing that rare are the ranks of the masters
There is something so beautiful, and magnetically captivating
For those who watch from a distance this art so magnificent
That flows on the wings of a rhythm invisible while remaining connected to
All that is pure and whole that unfolds with poise so beautiful.
It is indeed a synergy connection of an eternal discipline.
