Perception and Stress

Often when we find stillness we become aware of body sensations, thoughts, and feelings. Often times we get caught up in them, make a story out of them, or allow ourselves to be defined by them. But with practice we build our ability to be ‘the sky that holds the weather’. We learn how to hold what we find with a little more wisdom and compassion.

We talk about the power of perception. How PERCEPTION of stress creates the same response as being in a stressful situation. How often times our mind lives in past hurt, anger, resentment, or guilt. Or travels forward anticipating, worrying, or building fear.  

So, what can you do today to shift your perspective? To allow yourself to be present? And meet those moments with wisdom and compassion... ❤️
