There are so many ways to express devotion- whether it’s for our guru, child, goldfish, body or perfectly poured cappuccino. While doing my meditation practice today, I moved to the words I recited, imagining the deities before me, accepting my body and movement as my heartfelt offering. Embodied devotion can come in any form, but today it struck me that the words of my practice were truly penetrated with meaning as they rose from my whole body.
As an experiment, see what happens when we allow movement to come into play during our sacred activities – whether it’s praying, meditating, cooking for people we love, bathing, talking on the phone with a friend, hiking with some arm gestures or neck rolls, etc…Play with movement and devotion. Why not?
