14 Days of 100 Reflection #1

Does this path have a heart? If it does the path is good; if it doesn't it is of no use... One makes for a joyful journey as long as you follow it, you are one with it... one makes you strong the other weakens you... ~Carlos Castaneda

Why I Started?

To be more intentional, consistent and creative.

To be free in my playground of practice.

To look at and address things in my playing that have become habits that inhibit my freedom, lightness of movement and ease of expression.

To share it via instagram, feel open to be where I am and express myself in my unique way.

I am enjoying this process. It is challenging at times because of my inner critique and judge... AND

It is fruitful and full of learning about myself and my playing.

What am I learning?


That when posting there is a critical voice that judges and talks to me about not being “good enough” or "should be better now"... I am posting to continue to work with this as I truly believe that we are all good enough and just where we need to be. I am consciously turning this inner judge and shoulder into a discerner and appreciater of where I am nower! And into a voice that is helpful to my practice, process and progress. I am noticing more acceptance from my inner critique and a change of tone when posting. So it is a good process for me to learn from my recordings and sharing. To accept humbly where I am knowing life is about change, to be grateful for the desire to improve my music making and to appreciate my unique contribution.
