I was disturbed when someone passed a remark about a story I wrote.
Well not about how I wrote but he had comments about the newsmaker. It made me winch.
It just showed how closed up he is, and it reflected badly on himself.
But the lesson for me is, why m i affected. Why did this incident hit me? Because I wrote the story?
Not so, it hit me because i was irked that he is not opened up. And it dawned upon me, that I myself is a closed system and I didnt like it.
Like how they say, that others or things that happen in life, are a reflection of yourself.
They show you about yourself.
SO this person showed to me, what I didnt like about myself.
At the dentist afterwards, we discussed how a new set of aligners should b in place to correct or further improve the structure of my mouth.
A new plan just came like that, as with everything in life. And all the slingers that were prepared had to be dropped.
I had this strange feeling of myself walking through a channel inbued with light while I was on the dentist chair. I was very aware of this passage and this walking as the dentist scanned my teeth to make a new mould for a new set of aligners.
I couldnt really make sense of it.
But that feeling of walking thru a passage was strong.
After that we discussed why a set of new aligners were needed, and it was to help push my teeth out, to stretch the root behind the teeth a alittle so that a nice rounded space for an ideal bite can be put forth.
i thought how wonderful!
Its always about making space in life.
And I shared the realization.
To which the dentist said, it really is. All the time we are doing so much just to create room n space for breath.
Coming back to creating space.
I saw this teaching in yoga too! As we breathe and stretch, the teachers always almost emphasised that this is to create SPACE, in that part of the body.
In meditation too– create space.
When i saw Mr Ng for healing, he reminded me of the simple practice to create space whenever i feel encroached upon.
Just by imagining /visualizing outstretched hands n voicing :”there is space above me, there is space below me, there is space infront of me, there is space behind me.”
I found it amazing how these lessons dropped in on me. Even on a dentist’s chair. And How so very powerful the universe is as a teacher.
But also because I got the message, I feel very intuned with the universe.
once again, its about listening n awareness. its about opening up yourself n receiving the message.
and for that matter, after the last session with teacher, i made a conscious point to connect with Mother Earth, and the hard work seemed to have paid off.
And now, how do i create space for myself? in life? in my body and mind?
By keeping still. Be letting go. By being aware.
I know i can do that.
Thank you! and Om.
