This Spring is like a very narrow birth.
In many ways.
Nature is slow. Buds are bursting - and waiting.
Our bodies may be feeling the same way.
As sloths, always taking their time.
I saw a brilliant film the other day: Megane (or Glasses)
An unexpected pause from reality.
Taeko, a stressed, young proffessor, arrives on an island in the south of Japan for a vacation.
On this paradisical island little else matters beyond the recharging of spiritual batteries and the enjoyment of eating.
And of course" twilighting" -
They are referring to the art of slowing down, steeping ourselves in a place, doing nothing, and giving ourselves up to enjoying the present moment.
The movie is about the talent to be here.
It is quirky, and playful.
Taeko slowly learns to accept and then love the islands unique way of living.
Take your time. On your mat. In your life. Dare to be different.
"There's nothing to do, nowhere to go, and the quality of your inner silence permeates everything you do"
