Containment of personal energy begins within the self, in turning thoughts away from that which is happening outside of the self, in turning inward with the breath so that calmness may begin to take its natural place like the calmness that comes after a thunderstorm. In containment, and in the natural state of breathing, let calmness anchor, let thoughts reduce to no more than the sound of leaves gently rustling, let mind go still as a moonless night, let body relax like a day with no breeze, let inner self, spirit, be present in every breath, naturally contained within. As it should be. Calm.
