Waking up this morning, I found a knot, a tightness right in my core.
Still lying in bed, I told myself, 'Clinging, there is clinging'. And dropped down to the body, letting it relax one breath at a time. Not looking for a reason behind the tension, that would be putting a strain on the mind. Plus, it did not really matter, clinging is clinging is clinging.
Still lying in bed, I wished to not cling for the rest of the day. Or more realistically, to catch the clinging before it even gets a chance to take hold.
Noticing the movements in the body, noticing the movements in the mind. Tightness, no. Expansion and stillness, yes.
