How I hold myself is never simply a matter of body and bones and muscle It is also subject to what’s happening in my mind and what I’m feeling in my heart How am I being present to myself? Am I grounded and centered or caught up in some mind story? Am I feeling the heat of emotion pulling at my heart? Do I feel my feet on the ground? Am I focused on difficulties and challenges that lead me to “I can’t?” Or can I simply be present to what is and trust that I am really at home in this body And then settle into myself in a way that expresses the knowing that posture arises out of presence. Because the possibility of being truly present is what we have each moment of every day and every tomorrow as well.
