…we commonly define ourselves by what we do and what we have to show for it, and we obsess daily over all the things we have to do or want to do—to which end we ceaselessly calculate and scheme and schematize and manage and anticipate. And so what if we are out of touch with our bodies and our breath? So what if we have forgotten how to relate to the world as it is and are almost never fully present in it? Look at what we are accomplishing, and at what we still need to get done, and at what we should be doing now.
