I ran down the five flights of stairs from my flat as a start to my run!
On reaching the lobby, I poked my nose out of the door – the rain was pouring down…!
(I can’t see rain from my flat!)
Rain jacket needed, I caught the lift back up to the 5th floor! 🙂
Down the stairs I ran again – and out into the streets to a delightful rainy March morn…
I jogged 300 metres to the King’s road…
I love that road…
I always have
It has an air of happening energy and possibility – creativity in motion
The years of people going by – and by – making their way.
For others it may be a different experience…
We are all living in our own ‘movie’ – but we so often make the mistake of believing others are experiencing the world as we do…
With awareness and presence to our own ‘now’, it is easier to cross the bridge into the worlds of others
To be where they are too
But first and foremost if we are aware of our every breath, our every thought, our every action then life is transformed…
But to do this it means clearing the emotional pain, the psychological dramas that can arise in any moment;
And when we practise living this way, in time we experience that we are the awareness that is aware….
I was first attracted to the King’s road for a shopping trip when I was fourteen – over the years I have returned, again and again – and now I live a short distance away from its hustle and bustle, it’s unique essence.
I jogged past ‘The Duke of York Square’ where the Saturday Food market stall holders were starting to set up, and on to Sloane Square, turning right and making my way down to Chelsea bridge and over it to run about in Battersea Park
All these places so familiar, so many of ‘the stories of my life ’ have happened around here…
I was racing races in Battersea Park when I was still in my 20’s
And now in my 60’s its like none of it ever happened
Because the now is now
And the now feels better because of the past that never happened
And is also happening
Awareness is everything; when we are aware we will become aware that we are the awareness and we have always been free
