Grounded

File:Händkakk 2014.JPG

The emphasis in working life is to get things done, get results and move things on, which can give each day a driven quality and make moment-to-moment awareness difficult. Grounding ourselves every now and then in the body and attuning simply and calmly to the breath can help us remain balanced, and allows us let go of some of the ways we can get locked into fixed positions:

May we learn to return

And rest in the beauty

Of animal being,

Learn to lean low,

Leave our locked minds,

and with freed senses

feel the earth breathing with us.

John O’Donoghue, “To Learn from Animal Being”
