Have you been so deeply embodied that you had no sense of mind?
Yesterday I was pretty depressed. I was thinking myself into the depths. I killed off a bunch of FaceBook “friends” (I had no idea who most of them were), and I was seriously considering dumping my account here, and trying to do something else with my life. Hell, I was thinking about suicide, too. It had all come on totally suddenly—like in a day.
I usually go to a dance workshop on Friday nights. It has live music and sometimes I play music and sometimes I dance. I knew that if I danced, it might really help me. It helps because it gets me out of my head and into my body. I am no longer thinking in the way I think here. It’s more like total being without any question or analysis.
It worked. It helped me lift out. Of course, the impact does not last forever, but it made me feel connected to other people—even loved.
Do you have something like that in your life? It doesn’t have to be dance, but anything that works that trick for you? What is it? What does it feel like? What happens inside you sort of mentally but no mentally, if that makes any sense? Do you wish you could do it all the time, and never have to do anything else, or is it something you can take or leave?
