I seem to make many typos when composing email and texts on my iphone. Some of them are funny and non-sensical while others actually speak the truth in ironic and prophetic (and sometimes pathetic) ways.
Today I was sending a text to thank a friend for a 21 day online mantra meditation that she turned me on to. I was trying to send a text saying “thanks for the info on the meditation, I’m loving it.” But instead it ended up being “thanks for the info on the meditation, I’m living it.”
This mantra journey is all about self-love, wholeness, and our oneness with the Divine and the Universe. It’s one thing to sit down and do or listen to a specific 15 minute mantra meditation each day, it’s quite another to actually live that meditation each day, incorporating it wholly into how you relate to yourself and others. And while I truly am loving these daily meditations, I can’t honestly say that I am fully living them; rather they feel more like one compartmentalized aspect of my day, which may or may not impact other compartmentalized aspects of my day.
Thinking about it, many times if we love something we should be living it, or living in our love for it. For me, loving something can have a sort of passivity to it, almost like an admiration from afar; while living something requires action and intention. I can see how I’m much better at loving than living. I’ll need to sit with that for a bit and decide what that means for me…
