Balancing with Awareness
This is a sacred time where we can feel the promise of Spring awaken
and can know that balance will come.
This is the time of Imbolc, (Feb 2) the midpoint between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.
A story: Right before the first major snow storm of the season, I walked a long way into the woods to “balancing rock”. On my way there I got lost, and bushwhacked through rough brush and fallen trees, quite sure that I would not find the path again, I let go of finding the famed “balancing rock” and instead was drawn to sit beneath a huge oak tree.
I sat down beneath the arching branches, with my back against the trunk, and focused on my breath, and took in the subtle quiet of that moment in the deep woods. In my meditation I sought to stay aware, practicing the guiding phrase “Aware of…” This lead me to all sensations internal and external, it lead me to awareness of sky and stars, to my thoughts of home and hearth and to all of the vulnerability we share as humans, creatures and plants on this earth.
When I opened my eyes I looked slowly around, and saw with delight a rock up on a knoll not far from me which turned out to be “balancing rock”. I hiked to it through the fallen leaves. As I got closer, I felt clearly a similar vulnerability. Gazing at the giant rock, twice as high as me and four times as wide, I felt almost dizzy realizing that it had been balancing on a small part of it’s surface for at least 10,000 years.
It came to me that even when we think we are lost, or too much, or out of balance, there is a great balancing always occurring between the constant unpredictable change of life and the ancient steadfastness of our subtle awareness of being a part of this earth.
And so, I offer you this image and this practice:
Breathing in, I am the giant rock in balance, Breathing out, I am the air moving constantly around the rock.
