I’m feeling introspective and metaphysical here at year’s end, so expanding on last week’s description of acu-points, here comes a metaphor on acupuncture endings and beginnings to help share my thoughts.
Acupuncture meridians are described as having points, or ways in to the energy system of the body. Each one of those points has a name and a number, including a beginning point and an ending point. But just like nature, a breath or a season, there isn’t really a space between the beginning and the ending of anything. The moment of ending is also the moment of beginning. The last acu-point of one meridian is also, in a way, the first point of the next meridian.
Everything is like this, really. The minute a great thing happens, the next moment is on its way. And when a not-so-great thing happens, the next moment is also right on the way.
I find that powerful. It says to me that we can imbue that next moment with all sorts of possibilities. As creative individuals, we have choices, lots of choices.
And like the little bit of color at the tail end that soon expands into fullness, many things begin with little steps. The littlest steps sometimes. But little steps get bigger with practice and experimentation.
So, moving forward into 2016, a new year of health and wellness…physically, mentally, socially…think of a little step that could be taken in your life to head you in a desired direction.
