Breathe, Just Breathe

Make every breath a meditation

Inhale

Exhale

Two parts to every breath

Inhale

Exhale

The first

Pulls in air

Bringing the world

The good

The bad

The ugly

A lifetime of experiences

Dreams and desires

All that was

All that is

All that will be

Inhale

Exhale

The second

Pushes out air

A letting go

Of all you are tethered to

The bonds forged

The attachments made

The ties that bind

All pushed away

As though they never were

Inhale

Exhale

This is

Impermanence

Every moment

Is change

Beneath the drama

Noise and chaos

The order to things

Inhale

Exhale

Inhale is the beginning

The first breath

At birth

Exhale is the end

The last breath

At death

Inhale

Exhale

And what of the pause

That space

That silence

That surrender

Between the two

The void

Empty of thoughts

Words and deeds

Image for post

The pause

Between taking

And giving

This is the home

Of stillness

Of source

Of soul

Inhale

Exhale
