Movement is Alchemy

Movement is alchemy. Just like dancing when you are afraid to dance can feel extremely strange at first before you find that groove that is vibrantly and deliciously your own, engaging in movement from thing to thing, place to place, throughout life can feel uncomfortable but can bring about great personal power. alchemy

As I pack up my home of two years, I am frightened to move from this familiar spot on earth, but know that it is truly just the familiarity of the place itself that makes me nervous for what lies beyond it. I am familiar with the memories in these walls, I have grown very comfortable with them. The ego adores what it already knows, deeply and dangerously, and moving beyond these attachments is the call of human growth and a part of living.

Change is very good exercise. When we move beyond what we are firmly accustomed to, empowerment begins. Outer movement becomes inner movement, rehearsal becomes internal. Embody the change you want to see and move yourself, even when it feels like the most peculiar thing you can possibly do–do it then, especially then.
