One Transforming Moment
Sweep away negative and self-defeating thoughts with a conscious out-breath. Welcome happiness back into your heart and mind with a conscious in-breath. It only takes a moment. One transforming moment.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian
Using the technique of observing our breath we become aware of how the breath is a powerful tool to help us in calming our thoughts and clarifying the mind. We always have this tool with us. When we are going about our daily life and we notice moments when we are becoming anxious or angry, before reacting, we can take just one conscious breath. We can touch that place of happiness within us. This is how we learn to control our thoughts, rather than have them control us. We can be transformed in just one moment.
