Tue, Jun 9, 2020 ~ Dancing Water Daily ~ Nourishing Movement: Habits of Happenstance & Priorities

If someone could only see my actions and not hear my words, what would they say are my priorities? ~ James Clear

One of my teachers told me the story of the deaf waiters. Imagine sitting at a big table full of beautiful food that is too far for you to reach. Standing by your chair is a deaf waiter who wants nothing more than to give you exactly what you want. You can talk and talk and tell her all about what you are hungry for on the table but she can’t help you. As soon as you reach for something, though, as soon as you move toward what you want, the deaf waiter will whisk it to your place.

Habits are the same way. We can say that we want to live a certain way and have certain habits but only if our actions and choices reflect those desires will they happen.

Our Nourishing Movement practice today starts with setting an intention for your priorities for your practice and aligns our movement with those priorities. You can find the video here.

For more on changing habits through mindfulness check out Hugh Byrne’s meditation on Insight Timer (he has a talk/meditation, too, that is also great!).
