Listening to my body is how I live my life now. If I listen I am receiving messages all the time. It might be that my makeup draw needs cleaning out. If I just let these go then I find that things start to back up, the bedside table might be next on the list and if I don't do these things I can start to feel a overwhelm of my natural list as I start to get a back up of things to do. This is not like a to do list that I write. This is my body working with my natural rhythm. When I stopped to feel, and did the few things that I needed to do. (That kept getting louder as I choose to leave then). I felt how the bit of tension in my body was gone. I was no longer resisting the natural rhythm and a natural flow was back into the feeling of the house. Stopping this morning to appreciate that when I stop and listen everything feels like it has fallen back in place. A smooth flow returns to me and how I do my housework. Its this smooth flowing feeling that is telling me that I am again working with my body not against it.
It sounds like the words to a song, but as I walked into the kitchen this morning I felt how simple life is. Something had dropped away that had been making my life feel hard most of the time. What I felt was a simpleness that felt so free. I hadn't felt this for a long time, but it felt so natural.
I have been sick this week and even though I haven't been doing much the house has stayed tidy. We still make the bed together each morning when we get up, and even though I have had the flu, we have maintained a rhythm where we share the daily routine of hanging the washing on the line, washing up or packing the dishwasher and doing the floors. Keeping the house lovely.
All these things felt so easy.
There was a time for me when everything felt hard, whether it was cooking myself something to eat, or just doing my housework. Life felt complicated, like a struggle.
It feels amazing now to feel a simply joyfullness in every part of my life. I love to cook for me now not just for everyone else. Cleaning the house which has always been something that I love is so simple now, it feels like it keeps itself clean. I just do little touch ups.
I feel like my life flows now in a simple unfolding rhythm. The word that comes to me is "exquisite".
