The Deepest Breath
January 9, 2013
Breath is the thread that ties creation together. Morihei Ueshiba
Notice the next time your mind is chattering along bumping about like a car without shocks. Then notice how you are breathing. If you are holding your breath or your breath is shallow, deliberately deepen your breath. Watch with each intentional breath how something inside you softens and relaxes. Witness the momentary stilling of thought as more space is created. This practice is so simple, you might distrust its ability to make any appreciable difference.
As a faithful companion, our breath carries us into life, sustains us through every action, courts our most intimate experiences of connection and departs only once life has left us. The more conscious you make your breath, the more possibility you have for an energy-filled life.
