I start to take notice of my breath.
I pay attention to how it feels inside my chest, where the lungs are.
I associate this soothing feeling in my trachea and the expansion of my chest with becoming bigger, calmer and refreshed.
I like to sense the subtle tinglings spreading down through my legs, in perfect rhythm with my breath.
When I breathe in, I feel my body is feeding me with what I so essentially need, what I cannot live without any second, and what I so often ignore and forget. How could I have ever forgotten that I was breathing, I was always breathing?! If my body had trusted my mind to control the breathing, I would have died long time ago.
To sustain life automatically, no matter others understand or not. I embrace this ancient wisdom of life, and I spread my gratitude through my body with the breath of life. Thank you for keeping me alive, my body, you are so amazing!
When I breathe out, I release all the tension, worries, judgements and pain. Let them flow out, and let them go.
Then my mind becomes empty. I can slowly focus on an immense empty space behind my eyes. I call it my sky.
I like to see my thoughts coming and passing through my sky. I like to feel gentle with whatever I am experiencing, like a loving mother.
I like to tell my judgments that, it is ok that you exist. This makes it easier for me to stop blaming myself for being judgemental, not bright or brave enough, or for getting too quickly offended. By simply observing my opinions and judgements, I feel I can stand out from my perspective, and see there are endless possibilities. Does not matter how much pain and sufferings you had endured, it is always up to you to forgive and heal and come out from the shadow, now.
I like to remind myself with every breath, that time is not linear. There is only one moment, the moment of now. And our life is consist of moments of breaths of now.
Maybe I have absolutely nothing with you in common, but I can still relate to you in the feeling of breathing. I can tell you how good I feel when I breathe, and you will agree with me.
