I tried to make some fancy and complex changes to my blog tonight. You might know the drill, new year, slightly new theme (lovebig365), must make everything better my brain starts screaming at me. I start pushing buttons and entering credit card info. and registering new domain names, when suddenly the whole damn thing just made absolutely no sense to me. I think I might have unregistered the existing blog for a moment; such is the nature of complex restructuring. Suddenly all of my earnest and well-intentioned writing for a year moved into obsolesence because of my need to push things quickly to what I perceived to be a need for a fancier level.
I am not sure that equilibrium has been re-established yet, but I do know that in a brief and frantic 45 minutes a valuable lesson on keeping it simple was reinforced for me. I do not have to change my world overnight just because the calendar has flipped to 2013.
The truth is that my life, much like my yoga practice is an exercise in slow (sometimes glacial) consistent and well-intentioned progress. I do not have many great leaps into sudden transformation. Much of what I do day to day is a version of what I did the day before and the day before that and, to a certain extent, the day before that. It’s nuance and vibrancy is reflected in the love that I try to bring to it each and every day.
And it is this love, (not perfect), most especially the expression of it, that begins to build upon itself, so that over a series of days, weeks, months, my life and the lives of the people I come into contact expands and shines out this new kind of funky energy that has as its ultimate manifestation the mantra of livebig365: Big Life and Big Love are uniquely and beautifully interconnected. For me, one cannot be separate from the other.
It’s a coinherence, not to get too biblical, an in-dwelling of the three; living big exists because of loving big and they both exist as complete representations of the I (in this case me, but it could be you as well) that they emerge from. It’s a trinity plus one of sorts: I, livebig, lovebig plus you. And it’s that simple!
I’m going to blog about love this year. And I begin simply by stating that I love this blog. It continues with the same wacky, earnest, funkiness that I brought to last year’s blog. I’m open-hearted, prepared (sort of), yet vulnerable; and together, with Big Love and Big Life surrounding us, we’ll just have to bear witness to all of the lovely mystery that will unfold around us revealing shimmering opportunities and awesome experiences as yet unimaginable and unfathomable.
I for one, can’t wait!
As always, Big Namaste!
