The thought manifests as word;
The word manifests as deed;
The deed develops into habit;
And habit hardens into character.
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings.
~Buddha

Count 10-15 long slow deep breaths.

 

Ask yourself what negative habits you might have manifested in your life?

 

Stay here with this question as you continue to relax your breath pattern.

 

Are these habits damaging to your relationships, health, and wellbeing?

 

How might others in your inner circle of family and friends be impacted by these habits? 

 

How would you feel if you could eliminate these negative habits?  

 

Continue working with these thoughts as you deepen the breath.  

 

Count 10-15 long slow deep breaths.

 

Take 5 minutes to list the habits you wish to work through and eliminate by priority. List 3-5 potential positive outcomes for each listed habit that would occur if you eliminated these habits.  

 

These lists will be helpful for our practice next Sunday, which will focus on implementing changes in our negative habits.
