A Meditation To Attune With Autumn's Stillness

A Meditation To Attune With Autumn's Stillness

As summer gives way to autumn, the changing of the light reflects the ever-changing dance of movement within the Dao. At the heart of Pathfinder teachings lies the Daoist practice of seeking stillness while experiencing change.

You don’t have to study Daoism or Qi Gong to deeply connect with this basic principle. Simply find a rooftop, a dock, a porch or a park bench at sunset. Facing west, allow yourself to be present with your surroundings as the night sky slowly transforms from light to darkness. Take a breath, rest your eyes, feel the breeze, and allow your mind to settle. Be in stillness with the changing light.

Pathfinding means walking each step of your life in conscious freedom. It is the key to the power, spontaneity, and passion that comes from continuously attending to the present moment. To be truly engaged, you must remove distraction. To remove distraction, you must look inward. To look inward, you must create stillness and observe. Then answers to all questions become obvious, accessible, and clear.

Happy New Year!

It is the Year of the Dog and that means we are on the brink of change from within. In the Daoist zodiac, the dog is an honorable member of the pack, a hunter and warrior, nurturer and scout. The Dog represents interdependence and the recognition of the whole. Its power lies in the understanding of oneself within the group.
