Waking Up to Your World – Lion’s Roar

IT’S ABOUT finding that “gap.” This is what I’ve been striving for, most of my adult life…
Pema Chödrön on the importance of taking three conscious breaths when you’re feeling “hooked.”

Find a way to slow down. Find a way to relax. Find a way to relax your mind and do it often, very, very often, throughout the day continuously, not just when you are hooked but all the time. At its root, being caught up in discursive thought, continually self-involved with discursive plans, worries, and so forth, is attachment to ourselves. It is the surface manifestation of ego-clinging.
