I thought I was done with this breathing business, but then today in yoga I heard stuff about breath that I have never heard before. My new teacher for the morning talked about breath having 4 parts, I thought it was just in and out, then on to the next breath. She didn’t go into all the parts specifically, or maybe she did and I was busy breathing, but then she talked about letting our breath evolve.
Perhaps instead of controlling every element of our lives like our breath, we need to do the work, in and out, and then let it evolve.
I like that. Like my breath, I am evolving. We all are. We are not the same as yesterday, nor will we be the same tomorrow. When I step into yoga class tomorrow I will be showing up with a different body than the one I showed up with today. Evolved. Still me, just evolved. Still you, just evolved. We think we are done, then along comes something else to learn about ourselves.
