secret of success is to be in harmony with existence, to be always calm
to let each wave of life wash us a little farther up the shore.â?
is said that you cannot fully appreciate the tranquility of a calm sea
until you have lived through a raging storm. Over the last few weeks, my
family has been in a whirlwind of activities: packing, traveling,
camping, music making, dancing, working, gardening and just plain
dealing - everything has been back-to-back with little time to switch
gears and just BE. Throughout this crazy time I have marveled at my
ability to find moments of calm and remain in balance! I simply
imagined myself in the eye of the storm. Allowing it to rage and swirl
all around me while I maintained a sense of calm deep in my BE-ing.
In a hurricane, the "eye of the storm" is quite still, the fastest
winds are in the wall surrounding the eye and the further out the lesser
the winds become. But in the center, the 'eye of the stormâ?? everything
calms down. The wind decreases in strength and a sense of tranquility
exists over the place that was just enraptured in the throes of a storm.
The eye remains calm, immune to what happens around it.
Nature provides us such wonderful metaphors for life. The ultimate
challenge is separating oneself from the stresses of everyday life, to
live and work from a place of peace, centeredness and balance. To think
our best thoughts or create our best ideas, to solve our problems in the
most resourceful way, we need to operate from a place thatâ??s â??centeredâ?
and calm. A peaceful mind is essential, it keeps us calm no matter how
crazy the situation is, and it allows us to stay joyful and present.
For me, it is my practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu the helps me to be the
calm in the eye of the storm. This connection is achieved through daily
Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help and a deep awareness of my breath in the midst
of the raging storms of my life assisted by my new mantra, â??I am the calm in the eye of the stormâ?.
Developing a daily Jin Shin Jystsu self-care routine will help you
learn to be the Calm in the Eye of the Storm. Regular Jin Shin Jyutsu
Sessions will bring you to a place of balance, growth and enlightenment.
Learn to let the the winds swirl around you, while you maintain that
calm stillness in the center of you, your place of power.
