Lie on your tummy, rather than your back
You’re always looking up or out
You are never looking down
Feel the compression of joints in the skeleton dropping an dripping into the earth
The weight of the body nestling into comfy spot.
Surrender the weight to the earth
What does that feel like
A momentary letting go….
Breathing out but down into the ground
Is earth a soft cushion or is it sucking your weight in to its core wanting to swallow you up whole,
Feel your heaviness
Can any part of your body find pleasure in this inertia?
Become conscious of your points of contact with the ground
Bring awareness to your skin and the cold smooth surface.
Do you limbs fold in certain ways and open out or slide
Can inertia be your friend ? Demanding pause & consideration
Forcing you to place a full stop so you can begin a new full sentence again
Is there another way out of inertia?
