Appreciating contrast

Each moment brings newness to the present moment, which is in a state of constant flux. The body scan helped bring attention to parts of me I would otherwise ignore, if there is no existing physical discomfort. The practice today helped me appreciate those parts of me that are thriving. The contrast of pain and freedom from pain gives me a deep, broad, appreciation for all functioning body parts. In this very moment I am realizing that I seem to only respond when there’s a crisis. Why do I need a crisis to get me to a place of equanimity? This is  so curious.

May all beings be happy ♡
