Feeling of Being

What do you like to do to relax?

Something that I LOVE to do to relax is yoga. ❀

I actually didn’t start doing yoga until February of last year. I was looking for a way to feel more relaxed when the pandemic starting causing major problems in the U.S. 😟

I am excited to say since that day in February of last year, I have done yoga every single day. πŸ™‚

During one of my online yoga classes this week, I heard a beautiful song that I wanted to share with you.

The song was “Feeling of Being” by Lucy Schwartz .

Lyrics:

Bet you if you sink
You’d swim a little further
And I bet you if you cried
You’d understand me better
So I take a little time just sailing down the river
And I’m throwing out my line to see if I can catch the
Feeling of being
How still the night
Feeling of being
One little light
When I close my eyes
I hear the water lapping
On the side of the boat
Pretending I am catching
But I never feel the bite I only feel it’s missing
And I sail into the light I’m searching and I’m wishing for the
Feeling of being
How still the night
Feeling of being
One little light
Wonder if we ever really know each other
And I wonder if we ever find out what we’re after
And the truth of it is we’re both winding down the river
And if you could only let go,
Find the hidden silver and the
Feeling of being
How still the night
Feeling of being
One little light

How does the song make you feel? I find it incredibly relaxing and moving. ❀

Wouldn’t life be so much simpler if we were all just able to focus on living in the moment instead of carrying regret in our hearts and worrying about the future?

Focusing on BEING instead of DOING is such a great motto to have.

I thought of this song this morning as I enjoyed a beautiful hike and was able to quiet my mind with the help of the hypnotizing song of the crickets. ❀

What do you like to do to help yourself stay in the present moment and just BE?

Wishing you well! ❀
