This is 18 of 108 Ways of Livin the Moment. Let’s take back our life one beautiful, funny and delicious moment at a time.
#18 of 108: Check the (Spiritual) Weather Conditions
“We may be floating on Tao, but there is nothing wrong with steering. If Tao is like a river, it is certainly good to know where the rocks are.” –Dent Ming-Dao
In 2005, I was leading a yoga retreat to Tulum. Our group went to sleep one night knowing a small Category 1 hurricane was hundreds of miles off the coast. No biggie.
The next morning we woke up to discover it had jumped 4 categories overnight to become Hurricane Wilma, a Category 5 monster with 175 mph SUSTAINED winds.
Worse, we were right in its path and with very little time to evacuate.
Suffice to say, you don’t want to be in the path of a Category 5 hurricane.
There is a different type of weather in our lives, invisible to the eye, but with hurricane-like conditions equally as effecting to the soul as battering winds are to the body.
One in touch with this spiritual weather knows how to lie low on bad days and find their way through dark nights.
One out of touch with the “spiritual weather” has spent one too many days feeling as if they are sailing right into a hurricane. Can you relate?
Watch the following short video for my quick advice on checking the spiritual weather when you rise and shine.
WHAT IS A MOMENTEER?
For the past several months, I have been asking those of you interested in starting a little revolution to become a Momenteer.
As our world becomes more advanced and more high-tech, there has to be a group of people (maybe you?) who advocate for the present moment, the simple pleasures, the importance of making humanity more important than technology.
And hey, this is not that we stop using technology. But that technology stops using us.
To find out how you can save a seat on the arc and become a Momenteer, email email@example.com and write Momenteer! in the subject.
And to those of you who have already signed on, next week you will be receiving something very inspiring. Stay tuned!
