Our whole body practice shows us that we have to be open to being shocked and surprised.

We won’t open up or go deeper unless we are able to suspend our disbelief and allow the process to shock us.

We have to be willing to have no idea what is happening and allow it to blossom through us.

And then this act of being open to surprise creates a sense of wonder, having no idea what will emerge next.

Having no idea what the next footstep will bring.

Gradually as the doors start to open, we see that it is the most natural, the most honest to live in that state of wonder all of the time, even though the world seems to function differently.

Even though we might feel foolish for a time.

And that is the shining eyes of a person deep into their creative practice.

A living walking wonder
