“Our brokenness may explain us, but it doesn’t excuse us. You are charged to pick up your pieces, and recover your wholeness. No thing but self-possession can relieve the felt need for all that seems beyond you. To truly “have it all,” rest in the precious completeness within you.”
I had a Nia Jam in the Serenity Space today. There were 25 people dancing to sequenced routines for Abba songs, from a variety of funky Nia teachers. To say it was awesome kind of underestimates it big time. It honestly feels wonderful when planned events manifest even better than imagined. I am enormously grateful to my friend and fellow wellness co-conspirator Kim Lane for creating and organizing the Jam. We will definitely do many many more.
The whole experience today got me to thinking about how far I have come from my pseudo-suburban housewife days, and how much work I have done to create deep within me the “precious completeness” implied in Gil Hedley’s quote. With a hell of a lot of support, I have managed to pick up all of my broken pieces and make myself whole by learning to lean into the light of my heart
And a true awakening of this kind does not come without an enormous amount of grace and gratitude. I feel so lucky to say that the love can be unblocked to heal the insides and gently express itself outward to others. I have had to detach from so much expectation and resentment and general negativity. I am solely now a well worn nugget of delicious Susaness; complete in the moment, eagerly anticipating all that lies ahead.
Bring it on!
Big Loving Namaste!
