What is this being centered all about Imagine that you walk into work one morning. People are rushing about in an obvious hurry to get something done, your boss is yelling, and your computer system is down. Imagine that you breath slowly, deeply into yourself. You are calm as you look around and assess the situation. You quietly walk to your office and put your things down. You sit in your chair, take a slow, deep, full breath, and it suddenly becomes very clear what you need to do to handle the situation. You don't feel anxious, your stress level doesn't rise, and you proceed to do one thing at a time. The madness is happening around you but you aren't consumed by it. You are acting in it but without letting it affect your calmness. The external circumstances don't upset your internal sense of Being. Now imagine doing this with other situations in your daily life. It's a very powerful way to live.
