We sometimes have that one person in our lives who is an anchor. In times of distress, they maintain a solid sense of presence, keeping our boat steady in rough waters. We can also be an anchor unto ourselves, steadying the focus within the body, stabilizing the mind. When we learn to be our own best anchor, we come to trust our strength and resilience, knowing we can weather any storm.
In mindful presence,
A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because its trust is not on the branch but on its own wings. —unknown
