Sometimes I question what I say-Or worse yet- someone questions it for me.
My words could perhaps use a better filter.
After years of not speaking my truth- I have learned to speak it-even if it comes out harshly.
I am passionate about things I believe in. I am passionate about people I care about…Sometimes words flow out of my mouth without a lot of thought. My elbows are sharp. I’ll admit I have work to do.
I am working on the PAUSE between the INHALES and EXHALES. Make them longer—more lingering. This sometimes would help in the delivery of my message. OK- all the time this would help, but it is so HARD to remember in times of PASSION. EMOTION FLOODS and my mouth resembles a fast running river.
I respect the quiet observer. I know a slim few of them. I love to watch how they interact. They LISTEN more, process more and proceed with COMPASSION and WISDOM.
This is what I wish to cultivate more of.
So I practice Breathing. Yup we do it all day! What I mean is I need to practice “Conscious breathing.” Such a simple concept- yet so easy to forget as I shake, rattle and roll throughout the day.
INHALE, EXHALE. Inhale, exhale…in, out.
How often do I notice the little break in between the breath? Hmmm. Silence.
INHALE-find the pause EXHALE-find the pause
Over time the PAUSE grows…
The thoughts settle
The dreams percolate.
The imagination soars, things become a little clearer.
There is sweetness in this space.
The sweet spot. I have arrived. Breathing in fresh air…
Meet you here!
With softer elbows and a full spirit,
“Notice a breathe a day-try for 2. Try in an elevator for 1 Breathe- Instead of thinking about the other persons shoes.”~Eckardt Tolle
