Gratitude is like breathing in – letting ourselves be touched by the goodness in others and in our world. Generosity is like breathing out – sensing our mutual belonging and offering our care. When we are awake and whole, breathing in and out happens naturally. But these beautiful expressions of our heart become blocked when we are dominated by the fear and grasping of our survival brain.
I visited the Isle of Wight and enjoyed a bike ride with Gary Hill, my friend and fellow mindfulness practitioner. So much happened within the space of 24 hours that helped with our practice!
