“I dare you to move like today never happened before.”
–Lyrics from Dare You To Move by Switchfoot
As we slowly come out of our pandemic-induced way of being, we have an opportunity to embrace spring’s energy of renewal to emerge different than before.
Not trying to go backwards to old ways, we can slough off habits, beliefs, and ways of moving in the world that no longer serve us and open to something new.
Like children experiencing with wonder what’s before them, we too can move through these spring days allowing and delighting in the “new” all around and within us. The wisdom of Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hanh about practicing walking meditation speaks to the joys available to us when we move with this level of awareness:
“Mother Earth herself is a miracle. Each step is a miracle. Taking conscious steps on our beautiful planet can bring healing and happiness.” –Thich Nhat Hanh
May you dare yourself to experience and move through each day like it never happened before.
Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.
