Your own Rhythm


(EN/CH)


I have been diving in my own rhythm lately.

Practice my Kundalini Yoga and meditation every day.

To truly feel my cycle and ecosystem within.


A student told me that he was scared to start his business because he was afraid it would be closed down if things are going wrong. “Failure” makes him sad.


I was reviewing how being an entrepreneur myself has been through these 8 years of time.


I found 4 businesses in 8 years and Satya Shanti Temple is my 4th.

Previous 3 were shut.

Of course I felt sad when they were closed but I understand from time to time the reasons why they were closed are not “failure” or I was not “good” enough.

It simply was the structure of those businesses didn’t serve my highest purpose anymore with my growth.


When many people see closed business as “failure” or shame, I see them as my growth and it grounds me as who I am and my truth even more.

Also, without these experience, I don’t think I can manage and operate Satya Shanti Temple the way it is now.


Recently, I am diving in seasons of my business.

Satya Shanti Temple (ie I) has its own season and rhythm.



In the Season of Creation, we are passionate, enthusiastic, excited.

But don’t forget, we still have our Nurturing Season.

Nurturing Season doesn’t mean we are not “productive” but what we produce is different.

In Prosperity Methodology, my students and I are always resolving the belief of not profitable when taking a rest and I am not lying I am still learning.


Nurturing Season is a period for integration and internalisation and this is also a “productivity”. It is the period of a caterpillar getting into a cocoon. It seems nothing happens when we look from outside but in the cocoon, a lot of evolution is happening to prepare it to be a butterfly when the time is ready.


Integration is an important preparation for expansion.


If we only rely on Season of Creation, our bodies and lives are imbalance. So we will find


1. Helplessness

2. Frustration

3. Burnout

4. Futility

5. Inefficient working performance

6. Depreciation of Passion


Nurturing Season doesn’t mean stagnation but it is to acknowledge this is the time that we are integrating what we created and learnt in the past Season.

This is how I always share in my Kundalini Yoga class that we are balancing our whole nervous system including sympathetic and parasympathetic system. Balance means we exercise not only one of them but both so both of them can be flexible and they are available anytime we want them to function.


We all have our own rhythm and seasonal cycle.

To be honest, I am not sure yet how my cycle is.

But with doing my Kundalini Yoga practice every day, I am with my body and flow.

Now, I can realise when I am transitioning the other season and I just don’t know how long it would be (Maybe mine is not a fixed period.) But because I am sure which season I am at, I can manage my work to be compatible with it.


Finally, I wanna say don’t compare your Nurturing Season with your Creation Season.

Life has its cycle. There must be something we are meant to do during Nurturing Season which is different from that in Creation Season. It is just because we are not getting used to be in a Nurturing Season consciously. Or maybe we haven’t seen anyone to show us how a Nurturing Season looks like.


Trust your body and they will tell you all the hints.


Or maybe we are the pioneers.

By connecting and listening to our bodies, we can find our own flow and rhythm.

Live well and this could be a real-life example to show others how Nurturing Season can be.


May we all live well with our own rhythm and truth.

最近都在慢下來,沈澱一下自己的節奏,

每天恆常地做瑜伽、靜心,

都在感受自己的生命週期和內在生態。

前幾天有同學跟我表達害怕開始自己的事業因為怕開始了弄不好就倒閉,

怕自己接受不了「失敗」。


然後在那一個片刻,我回顧做自己事業8年多的時間,

我是如何走過來的。


8年間,我一共開過4間公司,Satya Shanti Temple 是我第4間,

從前的3家都倒閉了。

當然倒閉的時候總會有失落,但我一次比一次更明白,

倒閉的原因不是「失敗」或我不夠「好」,

而是隨著我的成長,公司的架構不能支持我的理念。


很多人認為倒閉是一件「失敗」或羞愧的事,

我卻認為這是我的成長和讓我更扎根知道自己的真實是什麼,

再者,如果沒有那些經歷,我並沒有豐富的經驗來運作 Satya Shanti Temple。


而最近,我在沈澱的是每門事業的春夏秋冬,

Satya Shanti Temple 即是我也有屬於自己的節奏。



創造的季節,我們總會熱情如火,但別忘記,我們都有休養的季節。

休養的季節不代表我們沒有「生產力」,而是創造的事情不一樣。

Prosperity Methodology 中,我經常遇到學生和自己要和解的是休息便沒有收入,這還是我在學習的。


休養的季節是內化知識釀成智慧的時刻,這也是一項「生產」,就像毛毛蟲結蛹的時候,從外看來,好像沒有發生任何事,但蟲蛹內的毛毛蟲都在做很多演化才能破繭而出成為蝴蝶。



內化是擴展前重要的準備過程。


如果我們只有創造的季節,身體和生命都會失衡,所以我們會出現


1. 無力

2. 抓狂

3. 身體崩塌

4. 徒勞無功

5. 工作失誤

6. 自我磨蝕到熱情的事都變得不再熱情了


休養生息不是完全靜止,而是我們接受這是把過去創造的事情整合和內化的時候了。

就像平衡交感神經和副交感神經的道理一樣,恆常的 Kundalini Yoga 課都在做這件事,

真正的平衡不是只懂放鬆或只懂活躍,而是兩種神經系統都要啟動,讓她們變得柔軟和富彈性,所以她們在適當的時候就會跑出支持我們的生活。


然而每一個人的季節和節奏都不一樣,

說實的,我還沒有很精準地量度得到自己季節週期,

只是每天做著自己 Kundalini Yoga 的練習,讓我緊貼著自己的真實和感受,

現在我都能夠感知到何時正在進入休養期,只是我不知要多久(可能我的是浮動也不定),但就是知道自己的節奏,我更能為自己的工作作出合適的安排。


最後我想說的是,不好用你的休養季節跟你的創造季節作出比較,

生命總有週期,休養季自然有休養季的事務可處理,只是我們都不太習慣休養,

又或者沒有很多人展現過給我們看休養到底是怎麼的一回事,

但請你相信自己的身體會給你一切的暗示。


或者我們就是這群先峰,讓我們跟自己多連結,聆聽身體的話語,

找到屬於自己的節奏和真實後,好好活著,可能這也是成為別人的一個真實體現,

原來生命的休養期是這樣的。


祝福大家隨著自己的真實和季節而活。
