I was pretty sure that shit would come up as I stalked my personal power, but I thought I wouldn’t be fazed. WRONG! I just got my nervous system slammed by fear over a series of events in a 10 hour period. This is how I responded…
I have done similar experiments 100’s of times. But the difference with this experiment is that I have installed support structures to change what I want to change.
Every now and then a yoga teacher imparts something that applies to life in a big way. Josh at Core Power Yoga in Encinitas, CA talked about the classical Mysore approach to vinyasa flow where you don’t try to go further in asanas (postures) than you have done in the past. You just do them while being present to what your body needs – not going beyond your body’s limitations.
I just proclaimed to the world wide web that I am stalking my personal power. No “JUST” about it. However, I don’t have many ways of staying on course without outside help. Entropy takes over, so putting my journey out to the public is the best support I have access to. I intend to mark my progress.
At the last stage of my Dark Night of the Soul in the Hero’s Journey, I make my final colossal attempt to cross the threshold of adventure and return to this world with gifts to share from my adventures over the past decade. How do I know I am at this threshold? I am ready to die, as I recently acknowledged I had very little – little hope, little money, little health, little desire, little community. Let me back up.
