Whenever we move rhythmically, or through space, or against gravity, we quickly shift into Nowness.
You can be fully in Now and not awake, such as running while thinking thoughts of self loathing or listening to angry rock anthems, for example. But if you have compassion for yourself, when you enter into high vibration through movement, you experience Nowness in your body.
This is pure delight for the soul!
Not just to use the body, but to delight in it, to enjoy it! Your vibration both soars and grounds, and you experience euphoria as an embodied state.
When we move rhymthcially, such as walking, running, rowing, dancing, our bodies entrain to that rhythm and this takes us into trance.
When we move through space, such as skiing, surfing, hiking, our bodies orient to no orientation, and this takes us into trance.
When we push against gravity, such as weight lifting or Cross Fit, our body says "Here I am!" and this gives the mind a break for a while; our body exists in Nowness, and we enter a high vibration state that is also trance.
If you are having trouble with a sitting mediation, try exercise: anything vigorous will do. Better yet, do both, as part of your daily practice: moving meditation, and sitting meditation. Say "Here I am" in all ways.
