Elder Movement – Meditating with the I Ching

There is a space of growing up that is part of spiritual awakening.  As one becomes an elder, experiencing the identification with universal awareness as more nourishing, enlivening, empowering, vitality giving, than that which is diminishing in the local self / physical being into the greater Self wholeness of the field of Open Hearted Awareness.

From the space of expanded a rejuvenation of the body mind is possible.

The characteristic that stands out in this integrated local self / Universal Self Awareness is moving slowly enough in the local body mind to welcome and connect with the inner guidance of the Universal Self.

Running ahead like a joyful child abandoning this slow steady ecstatic inner connection and guidance is no longer the optimal option.

What is the optimal option?  To move in slow steady connected and resting as beneficial and therefore protected and consistently guided by the universal wisdom source of awake awareness that informs one of what’s best now in the continuously flowing now presence.

One can catch oneself pushing ahead too fast, too far and disconnecting from source and simply slow down or rest and reconnect to the fountain of youth, wisdom, and well-being each time there is a disconnection.

This connection when sought within the flowing now is palpable and thus relatively easy to feel.

Keep coming back to this connection each moment you experience disconnection.

So elder movement is different, yet related to youthful movement, in that both are ecstatic.  What distinguishes elder movement is that it is slower, more conscious, gentle, kind, and compassionate.   And promotes the healing that underlies rejuvination, health, and well-being.
