That which you resist persists. Resistance to adversity amplifies the adversity.
This week, observe, in yourself and others, resistance and non-resistance.
And practice the Breath of Wonder:
Inhale deeply. Look up, as if seeing the Northern Lights (or a swarm of butterflies, or the Milky Way).
Keep your eyes open while looking up and exhale, and out loud say “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.” You know the sound — it’s what people exclaim when they see a stunning display of fireworks.
Do this for three consecutive breaths.
You can’t help but smile while you use this breath. It opens your heart.
