Last night the word of the day in my Toastmasters club was Ataraxia, which means “a state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety”. Ataraxia is tranquility. It sounds so exotic, that word, and I read on Wikipedia the word is a Greek term and was used to describe the ideal mental state for sending troops into battle. Hmmm! I’m making this my word for today. Ataraxia.
My intention is to be tranquil, serene and open to meet what comes and in that I sing because I’m reading that chanting raises my vibration, so I’m singing, chanting and humming Ataraxia in a multitude of ways.
May this day empty and fill, fill and empty with interaction, connection, communication, empathy, receptivity, grace, love, understanding and flow!
