Overhead Is Served from Underground

A power company sign spotted on my run this morning: OVERHEAD IS SERVED FROM UNDERGROUND. This made a wonderful meditation. First, on the importance of a quick and efficient footstrike in running, and on the importance of a steady base in yoga poses. And broadly: how much of what we “think” with our brains comes from somewhere deeper. Our strong roots serve and inform our intentions. We draw from a deep underground well of experience, and what we imagine with our minds is always an expression of what’s below.
