I could be having a bad day. I could be heartbroken about the state of my country. I could be tired, I could be hungry. I could be temporarily off coffee. I could be worried about my kids or a myriad of perfectly acceptable things to worry about.
But stepping into the role of teacher, those things fall away and being present with my students is all there is.
As I instruct them to breathe, I breathe too.
It’s really quite a gift.
To have an occupation that encourages breath. That encourages presence. That encourages fluidity and movement, and stillness.
Each one in front of me, a Divine spark.
It doesn’t get any better than this.
