In a recent conversation with Franklin, he described a situation where he finally got to relax after having been under pressure for a while – and used the phrase, “having an outbreath.”
That phrase really struck me, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
What a great way to picture letting go.
Often I don’t even notice how much tension I am carrying until I stop and get quiet. Once when I was going to sleep, I suddenly realized that my shoulders were up to my ears with tightness! It’s a little challenging to drift off in that position.
When my dog is totally relaxed, she rolls over on her back, lies with her feet in the air, and looks totally ridiculous. Sometimes we need animals to remind us how to relax!
Let’s get together Sunday and have an outbreath!
“To go out of your mind at least once a day is tremendously important. By going out of your mind, you come to your senses.”
