We begin again.  It’s interesting. Today’s work begins on a Mars Day (Mardi in French, martes in Spanish, Tuesday in English).  A martial beginning to the fifth year?

Two qi gong forms, four tai chi forms, some meditation, the druidic daily practice. The qi gong forms keep wanting to run together.  I have to make a pretty deliberate effort to stop them from doing so.

Last year at this time, I committed to doing an hour.  I more than doubled the length of my practice time, but I didn’t hit an hour, though I came close.  This year, I’m committing to practice without attachment to result.

I have no idea what that is going to look like.  I think that means, though, that I’m going to keep going.  Will it look the same as it does now?  Maybe, maybe not.  I’m just going to practice, and not worry about what the results look like in the long run.  It does all seem to even out in the long run.
