Perpetual Movements for Life

My life is in perpetual physical motion. I ride my building’s elevator. I board a bus. I step into the metro. I fly on a plane. I transport myself by train. I reserve a ZipCar. I am driven.

Simultaneously, my life is in perpetual spiritual motion.   I pray. I meditate. I reflect.  I chant.  I sing. I study holy texts.

And sometimes, I dance into my soul’s footprints.

These are the movements of my body and soul on weekdays.

When the Sabbath arrives,  I cycle into high spiritual gear where I remain perpetually motionless.
