Each morning I awake with a wish to use my energy wisely. I often lose sight of this goal as I enter into the day’s obligations.

When you find yourself in a bad neighborhood, you don’t have to panic. You can just come back to the experience of body inhaling and exhaling.

Then you have an inner atmosphere of balance to support you when you become imbalanced.
