From I, The Book:
Entrained by the importance of our day-to-day, we forget the gifts available to us such as, for instance, the energy of buoyancy.
It can be so easy to become complacent with ourselves and choose to populate each moment of our life with thoughts, emotions and actions that reflects a state of sadness, victimhood or depression. We then totally forget that we have at our disposal, within ourselves, the capacity of choice: continuing to perpetuate that underwhelming state of being or choose the best next step towards your own greatness (in your own eyes): buoyancy.
When this poem was born I was looking for a path to get out of a state of stasis that I was finding myself into. I felt the need to activate myself again. Throughout its writing I was able to tune in further with that potent aspect of myself and ride this new energy throughout the following days.
New Alchemy 2.1
This stanza invites the reader to be fully aware to the present moment. Beyond emotions and thoughts, the reader may choose to become aware of the current reality as it is.
New Alchemy 2.2
From such a place of awareness, opens up a new type of experience that was not available before we chose to be centered into this body, this environment, this instant: we get access to new information about ourselves and to a renewed energy.
New Alchemy 2.3
Once we let go of everything that does not pertain to this present moment, we invite the energy of buoyancy or innocence in to discover what it is to be oneself anew, without limitation, pristine to itself, now.
