Encapsulate your 2011 in one word. Why that word? What would you like your word to be for 2012? Why?
2011 was saturated with intention
. I decided, in late 2010, that intention is essential:
to try, the meaning
to do something. The intention to meditate is far more important than the technique used or the technicalities of what did or didn’t occur during a meditation session. Likewise, the intention to practice yoga with mindfulness & metta is enough. (As long as you actually do it!) And I actually did it! I practiced more regularly and devotedly than ever before. Intentions were manifested!
My word for 201
2 is MOVEMENT
. The act or process of moving; especially
change of place or position or posture. A tactical or strategic shifting. A series of organized activities working toward an objective. The vibrant quality in literature that comes from elements that hold a reader’s interest. Voiding the bowels. Movement.
Plates are shifting. Energy is in constant motion. I will relocate to the other side of the planet in 2012. I am going to leave Guatemala City and settle in another international city, to be determined, though most likely in the Eastern hemisphere. But no matter where I am, I will continue to devote myself to The Movement: practicing, modeling, spreading, facilitating, teaching, and sharing yoga, creativity & mindfulness! Let’s get moving!
“All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vital, and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.” ~Martha Graham
