Structure and Energy

Life flows into structures becoming defined by obstacles and blockages. Life assumes the shape of the vessel into which it is poured. There are structures that trap life so that it grows stagnant within the structure, and there are structures that allow life to flow continually through them. We may think of ourselves as structures defined by our habits, programmed biological computers through which the raw energy of life travels. By transforming our habits we may restructure ourselves to allow life to flow freely through us.
Posture is a basic way to direct the flow of energy. Our bodies are like antennas that can be bent this way or that to pick up various frequencies of life. Paying attention to our physical habits will lend us a clue as to how we are presently processing life, and intentionally building a repertoire of postures that facilitate life will help to change the structure from the outside in. Here we are talking about yoga, sacred dance, tai chi, literally. Physicality is essential.
Our bodies are keys to other planes of existence, they are tools for manipulating realities. Everything is altered by posture, by reshaping structure. Allowing our reality to be shaped by unconsciously formed habits and postures is to be unnecessarily imprisoned. Intentionally forming habits and postures to direct the flow of life consciously is to be a surfer, a magician, a free builder.
Once the structure changes the energy will flow endlessly through it for as long as the structure remains.
