This morning at 6:30 yoga, before the cobwebs had cleared, our instructor said something I needed to hear.
You and your breath are dance partners, let your breath lead.
I noticed how I kept trying to lead. It took lots of practice before I stopped holding my breath or let my breath take me into the next pose. I let my mind take control, instead of surrendering to the great wisdom of my own breath.
This happens in my life even when I have been awake and the cobwebs are no longer in my vision. But I am still asleep to the dance of life, so wanting to be the one to make the first move.
