The stillness is the move

Last night, in the middle of yoga, downward dog to be exact, I had a beautiful moment of clarity.  One that shook me from my core, literally; I laughed as tears streamed down (or up, I was upside-down) my face.  No doubt it was brought about by my heart-opening yoga practice, but what really resonated with me was this song:

If you're not a fan of indie music, don't listen to it for its sound and feel free to ignore the super odd video - but pay attention to what they're saying.

I've always thought of this as a love song about a couple, "after all that we've been through, I know that I will always love you," but in that moment, focused on the simple act of breathing and bending, I suddenly and completely knew - it is a love song, but it's not to someone else - it's love of self.

"there is nothing we can't do
I'll see you along the way baby
the stillness is the move"

I've been beating myself up with questions and second-guessing, but it's not necessary.  It will all come in time.  I will be kind to myself and be still.  It's my move.

I am so grateful and happy for:
~ yoga endorphins
~ Lindsey's advice to get moving
~ receptiveness
