Yoga of Relationships
Learning to pause is the first step toward transformation and healing in relationships. When triggered, we can take a deep breath before jumping to blaming, withdrawing, obsessing, or distracting ourselves. In the space a pause creates, our natural awareness can arise, allowing us to be mindful and to recognize what is happening inside us without judgment.
I love the Buddhist quote, “Before you speak, pass your words through 3 gates: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?”
