Following on from my previous post:
Do not control the breath. Let it settle by itself – Eventually the breath will enter and exit freely. When you are aware of and firmly established in this entry and exit, that is the correct breathing. ( ‘ A still forest Pool ‘)
These instructions appear to be both about meditation and my work with stitch – advice both in the relationship of cloth, stitch, thread but also about allowing the relationships to develop, rather than controlling or forcing them.
