Welcome to Day Two of Float Week! Today was a bit of a surprising float for me ~ on one level, I was waiting and expecting for things to happen, but also very content to simply watch my mind at work and let it be. Being able to hold multiple subtle inner experiences in my awareness at the same time is one of the gifts that floating has shown me, so even if my mind is active, I can also be aware of the stillness behind the thoughts and mental patterns. In fact, even riding the MTA for a long while yesterday, I was reminded again and again of the experience of being in the float and connecting with myself and my breath. Yet again, I’m recognizing that the float doesn’t end when the reggae music comes on, and it doesn’t even end when I finish my tea ~ it’s up to me, but I always have the option to reconnect with that feeling of floating ~ anytime, anywhere.
