Echoes of my past and future selves

"Each one of us has all the wisdom and knowledge we ever need right within us. It is available to us through our intuitive mind, which is our connection with universal intelligence." ~Shakti Gawain

Haven't been here in a while and so I thought I'd return and do another month of posting every day... I'm already starting a day late so this month shall be from the 2nd of April... till at least 30 days later. 

It's April again... my favourite month in the year - mostly because it's my birth month - it's always been a happy month for me. This year, as last year, it starts with a combination of happy/sad feelings. I've got stuff to work through... I feel I will always have stuff to work through. 

It's April and I'm thinking of where I was last April. My physical, mental and emotional state, my family and life on the whole. There have been many changes. Through it all, and especially within the past three months, I've found myself thinking of my younger self... and my future older self. 

Sometimes I'm teaching my yoga class and there will be a disorienting moment of being on the other end... of being a teacher instead of a student. Echoes of teenage experiences of yoga and tai chi classes. Moments of figuring out what I should be doing, what people want me to do, what I want to do. 

Sometimes I move through my day and feel what I could be... what I shall grow into. Future Me is one who has taken all she has known, learnt and experienced and used such to transform herself into an extraordinary person. I don't know how long it will take to get there but I do know that it is coming.  

I've always believed that all moments are connected. That we can reach back into our past and forward into our future. Send comfort to a past shaky moment, send positivity to a future moment. 

This month I shall record moments... or not. This month I take to reflect. 

peace,
Ren
