Meditate on This: Alan Watts on Nothingness

But to me nothing

-the negative, the empty –

is exceedingly powerful.

-Alan Watts


In my asana practice it is the space between the poses that holds meaning for me.  Like the space between notes or the space between thoughts – it is precious.  There is space between silence and sound, too.  I experienced this recently when co-teaching a Deeper Realms event at Samyama Yoga Studio.   As we settled into our yin shapes Lindsay Armien chanted.  It was beautiful and resonant but when she finished and the air settled there was a stunning transition – like that moment the sun sinks on the horizon.  All that was left was silence.  And it was beautiful and resonant, too.
