In order to relax, you have to believe that the ground that supports you will continue to support you…no matter how creative a step you may take.
And why would you trust that? Well, you trust it all the time. Every time you take a step, you’re actually falling and meeting the ground which predictably and even comfortably breaks your fall and gives you the impulse to take the next step.
And you know how you discovered that incredible level of trust…well, here we have to take you back to when you were a little younger…when you were just learning to walk. Remember that? (“Expletive of your own choosing”), it was probably one of, if not, the most important things that you will ever consciously learn, and you don’t even remember learning it? What’s with that!
Think about what you must have done to learn that “trust.” After all, you didn’t just learn how to walk, you learned how to trust.
My dance teacher in college, Harriett Ann Grey, would often say, “All dance is just falling and recovering.”
And how did you learn to walk? Guess what? You fell down a bunch…a whole big bunch of times…and you got up…you recovered.
It was your destiny.
So, if learning to trust/walk required hundreds, if not thousands, of times of falling down and getting back up again, how many times will you have to practice the trust walk of faith before you can walk through life assured…certain that your every step will be met by the firm grasp of…not only material gravity, but spiritual gravity which also provides the spring in your step to keep you moving.
Yes, indeed, now The Cosmic Choreographer wants to teach you that you can not only trust the steps of your life to the “Ground of Being,” but you can trust the dance of your life to your always dependable inner dance partner, who will lift you up and gracefully bring you back down so that you can ever rise again.
It’s your destiny.
