I did an hour long yoga routine today around lunch time…
What made it significant from other days is that I really, really felt peaceful and serene. Like, “oh… if I thought I was so peaceful before, that’s nothing compared to now”, type of peaceful and serene!
Anyhow, I must have done something very right during yoga practice, but the only thing that stood out was that I focused on going very slow and making sure all my muscles were relaxed. My breathing was very smooth and not too pushed.
So, finishing up in corpse pose I felt like I was drifting in and out of limbo, not really falling asleep. But just awake, yet not fully present, as if I were riding that fence between oblivion and calm alertness.
Throughout the remainder of the day I seemed to just float about without a care or a worry. My wife and I had doctor’s appointments and we had to take our youngest son to the orthodontist, then buy some things at the supermarket. I just seemed to float about not really being affected by anything in particular. Just content to maintain this aura of personal bliss.
Anyways, I have to get ready for big band rehearsal at the moment. Perhaps I’ll try doing a short yoga session before I leave to see if I get energized yet remain calm, cool and collected.
