That River Moving In You.

 “When you do things from your soul,

you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”

― Rumi

I feel a river moving in me.

This morning I slowed to stillness on the front step, savoring the sound and smell of a round, spring wind as it threaded its way through the bay trees and redwoods in our yard.

I brushed my daughter’s hair as she sat at the piano after breakfast, practicing playing with two hands.

I didn’t go straight home after I dropped her off to school.  Instead, I walked up a big hill beside a running creek.

I rehearsed for my upcoming show on Sunday, singing and playing guitar for several hours

I challenged a coaching client to surrender to and nurture her desire to serve others in some way

At school pickup this afternoon, I arrived early and let myself nap in the car.

You don’t need special circumstances to do things from your soul.

An ordinary day can become deeply nourishing when you take moments to consciously relax into  “natural time” — responding to that pulse of life that’s always available to us, a natural order or rhythm we can entrain ourselves to any time we choose to slow down and listen.

Take 5 minutes to listen to music or look at art that moves you deeply.

Call a friend, and listen deeply.

Take some time to write.

Allow this river to run through you, too, and together we’ll spark this world with our collective passion…and joy!

With love from your coach,
