Taiji day 59: go easy on yourself

So, let’s say you’re on a field trip with thirty students and chaperones. The meeting room is locked and you don’t want to go downstairs to do your chi workout.

Don’t make a big deal of it to others. This is what you do. I did Taiji today in the space between the desk and the bed this morning, while my colleagues slept.

It doesn’t have to be a production. Don’t let it assume that level of importance in your mind. Just get up, do your shorter routine and then do your longer one. My working space today was barely bigger than a closet or a desk chair.

There doesn’t have to be any attachment to how it looks, or what it looks like, or where it’s done. Don’t let it hang over your head. Do it, no matter what it looks like: it counts.
