Well, hello there! It’s a been awhile, I know. Truthfully, I haven’t felt like writing…and so I haven’t. It’s rare for me to do something that I don’t want to do. I can’t decide if that’s a good thing or just proof of arrested development. A bit of both, maybe?
But I’ve been feeling guilty: guilty for neglecting the community here at elephant and guilty for being delinquent on my commitment to Waylon to post bi-weekly. I’ve been reading from the sidelines but not participating. And participation is kind of the point, don’t you think?
The other day someone asked me, “When there are days when you don’t feel like practicing, what do you do to combat that feeling?” Well, combat isn’t really my thing. Sometimes I cut myself some slack, sometimes I look into why I’m resisting the practice, and other times I just get on the mat and move or sit on the meditation cushion and breathe. It doesn’t have to be good or bad, just what is.
What do you do when you find yourself resisting? Whatever your practice is, how do you balance accepting the resistance and moving beyond?
