Punctuation plays a big role in our communication; it reveals where the emphasis is put, and it highlights our emotional state of being.
The essence of a musical composition is based on rhythms. Rhythms are at the center of everything in life. At the physiological level, our rhythms impact our digestive system, nervous system, and endocrine system. Our health has a lot to do with the rhythms of our body. Yet our analytical mind does not know punctuation; it does not know how to breathe, change rhythms, or pause.
The way we touch others is through our punctuation and our breath. If we have only one rhythm in life, we are not fully expressing who we are, and our listening capacity is limited. One tempo in life does not give space for anything. Space is a major component of Prana which is our life force.
Intentional punctuation invites us to reflect, shifts gears and allows us to expand our view. From there, our presence becomes more rooted and alive, and our reactivity lessens. We are free.
