This is a Rumi quote seen at the beginning of "Transformational Weight Loss" by Charles Eisenstein.

"Every need brings in what's needed. Pain bears its cure like a child."---Rumi

I also wanted to include a link to Rick's provocative post today...where I'm hoping a discussion will continue. Go there! Comment. I want to hear what everyone has to add to this.

The best thing I ever did was take Tolle up on his position that to be aware of my breathing as often as I could remember to do so every day for one year would be more powerfully transformative than all the spiritual workshops combined. I am a couple of months into that and now I can swear by it. It is saving my sanity, freeing me, changing everything. No more depression, no more anxiety. There is nothing that isn't transformed by this practice: every relationship, how I go through every hour of every day, my self image, my self confidence, my sense of humour (I have more now), my attitude toward death. You name it, this practice has touched it and changed it.

Well, Kelly, I totally trust you. Everything you've said or recommended to me has proven to be true and/or worth what your experience has felt it to be. So I am willing to go with this.

It is completely free, harmless, there is nothing for me to lose, and I will work to see what happens in my life.

I appreciate your sharing your experience. And for blazing the trail.
