When people ask me what type of work I do, I tell them I help people and especially athletes foster the balance between their power and their peace.
There are two things that you need to know about your power and your peace.
- Too much power can be very dangerous and destructive.
- Too much peace can be passive and submissive.
So how do you find the balance between the two? By giving both equal amounts of attention.
Our natural breathing process has a rhythm; an ebb and flow.
But if you notice, whenever you get irritated or angry, your breathing pattern becomes short, erratic, and powerful.
And when you are calm and relaxed, your breathing pattern becomes long and peaceful.
So, take note of these differences. Our breath is the key. When you meditate or even just go about your day, try and focus on your breathing: your short and powerful breaths, and your long and peaceful breaths. And when you’re done, allow yourself to just sit and observe how you feel and how you’re breathing.
I’ll leave you with this thought: “Being at peace is the ultimate position of power.” – Unknown
