“Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralyzed.”
— Rumi

Today’s Excerpt:

Is there anything you have too little of?

Explore too much and too little with your breathing.

To start this experience, first notice your breath.

Notice that your body knows how to breathe in and out naturally, without effort.


Now see if you can only breathe in. Breathe in as long as you possibly can. What happens?

Next, try to only breathe out. Breathe out as long as you can. What happens now?

Chances are you can’t do either one alone — nor should you!

To stay balanced and healthy, your body needs breathing in and breathing out.
