Connect

Posted in Discipline, Life on December 28, 2010 by dougautenrieth

Question on Facebook:
How do you find peace when you are scared: do you have a mantra, prayer, process, technique? Please share…

My response:
Physically: connect to your breathing and focus on the sensation of air coming in and going out. Relax your body and release tension. Keep it simple. Mentally: connect with the present moment. The thing you fear is in the future and has not come to pass. Spiritually: connect with gratitude in the knowledge that everything that happens is ultimately the best possible thing that can happen for you whether you can perceive the benefit immediately or not.

The key word in all of this is “connect.”  Be still. And, know that you are whole.
