Once an object is set in motion, it tends to continue. Take off is usually where the grapple begins.
Spinning class. Getting over the anticipation and anxiety of the booming music and the instructor with the pet Tony Robbin’s sitting on his or her shoulder shouting out motivations can be more work than the uphill battle the class presents you.
Still. Some days you find yourself there. You overcame the obstacle and made peace with the opportunity to move.
Maybe you’ll go with each nudge to turn the dial up and engage with the increased physical resistance or you let the mental resistance be enough for the day and ignore the dial. There is no wrong or better choice.
Take your moments from Spinning class into your life.
Now what? Are you launched back into the mundane or are you more aware of the innumerable opportunities and obstacles presented to you?
Are you going to slow down or speed up?
Is your mind going to wander while your physical body goes about it’s routine?
Will you resist the familiar or cycle towards uncertainty?
The somatic re-education you gifted your body with is unfolding the vibrancy of your mind whether you willed it to or not. Awareness of the choices you make in that hour will give you insight into how much inertia you choose over momentum. Again, there is no wrong or better choice.
As you choose to negotiate with the dial on your bike, you choose to negotiate with your mind. The physical body follows like an obedient student. Surrender to the process and let the transformation flow from bike to life.
The only illusion here is to believe that you are simply just working out. Unfold, keep swirling and work “it’ out. Spin to thrive. Take it into your life.
