So many of my clients say they have no time to do the homework I assign them each week. They don’t have time to even talk to each other, sometimes not even once in a whole week.
Of course, they have no time to rest.
I prepare to rest on the next in-breath. I relax on the turn-around between in and out. I rest deeply on the out-breath. I relax again on the turn-around between out and in.
Every breath, therefore, is an opportunity to rest.
Sometimes, between the typing of one letter and the next, I take a breath-vacation, and rest.
The wisdom of the world can arise on one of these breath-vacations. A single one. They are like doorways to the place where serenity is manufactured.
They are always available. Anytime you still have time to breathe.
