THE CALM AMID THE CHAOS

IMG_5991

I was awake this morning before dawn.  Some of you must know of these early awakenings.  I tried and tried to fall back to sleep but cannot.  So I tried to stay and be content.  But I cannot.

So I rose, made myself a cup of tea and watched the first amber glow of the day in the sunroom.  I made peace with my feelings.  I made friends with my ghosts.  We drank tea together.  I sat and stayed.  I breathed.

The morning came.  I did my 18 heavenly moves.  I surrounded myself with divine chi.  I felt its warmth protecting me.  Calmness came amid my mind’s chaos.

There is power in movement, in the doing, first one limb, then another.  The cobwebs and ghosts leave with the sunlight.  First one, then another, to have tea or maybe lunch at Somewhere Else.  They will probably come back another day.  I will let them come.  I will set the table.  I will use my fine china and we will honour each other. Namaste!

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
