I had to learn how to bask. It wasn't easy because it looks and feels "lazy" according to the norms I was taught. My teacher, Shiva Rea, while visiting her at her home in the Malibu hills up above the Pacific Ocean in January about 18 years ago, after travelling to Kiev and Russia in the dead of winter, trying to defrost from the cold and some harsh learning experiences, lovingly said me, "Why don't you just get naked and soak up some sun?" I remember feeling so unable to even fathom myself soaking up sun, let alone the naked part.
But now I love to bask... fully clothed in the presence of my friends and loved ones, on these beautiful summer days, and even precious moments in the city. Seriously, sometimes I do it quite obviously. And sometimes I just take in their light, secretly basking, admiring, and enjoying being in their presence, grateful to this very special moment when our lives aligned just so. (if you missed my email yesterday about how full moon, please see link in comments)
This week, practice basking, whether it’s in the light of the full moon or when you are with loved ones. Be conscious that you are basking: take a moment, or even many moments to see their light, truly enjoy, revel, and delight in the beauty. And if you forget to bask on Thursday August 15, Do it any night. ... See MoreSee Less
