May 6--Breath

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.  --Thornton Wilder

    Let your first treasure be your breath. Follow this link to an excellent 20-minute TedX Talk on breathing by fellow Forrest yoga teacher, Jambo Truong. I gently remind us all that breathing is the most important thing we do, and it is our greatest resource for healing. 
    What are your other treasures? Family? Friends? Good health? Inner peace? A relationship with Source? Opportunity to be useful? Ability to move? Creativity? Home? Pets? Or are your treasures your stuff? A substance to abuse? Control? Blaming? The need to be right? Perfectionism? Us vs. them? 
    I'm thinking the heart prefers the former list.
