Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment,
I know this is a wonderful moment.

--Thich Nhat Hanh

Our breath is the bridge from our body to our mind. It is the tool that can unite them together, bringing illumination, peace and calmness.

This reminds me not to struggle so in Sanchin, but to let it flow in/out, naturally.

Breath,
The life force,
So simple,
So miss-understood and taken advantage of.

Breathe in life and fill your chest with love of life.

Breathe out and wonder,
as breath is born again into the larger circle of life, which we share and connect with "All" things.

blessings to you

"Now and again, it is necessary to seclude yourself among deep mountains and hidden valleys to restore your link to the source of life.

Breathe out and let yourself soar to the ends of the universe; breathe in and bring the cosmos back inside.

Next, breathe up all the fecundity and vibrancy of the earth.

Finally, blend the breath of heaven and the breath of earth with that of your own,becoming the Breath of Life itself."

- Morihei Ueshiba

Thank you crazy cat & Mary for sharing "your Breath". Master Ueshiba is a favorite of mine. Check out the "peace.pdf" in the "documents" directory under the ftp link at the bar on the bottom of your page for more of his wisdom.

We stand on Earth ... we look to heaven above. In between is air ... our mediator between heaven & earth...

Is it any wonder that Faith Hill's #1 Song is "Breathe"?

Breathe in ... Breathe out ... Relax ...
There is nothing to do, nothing to be, nowhere to go.
Just be ... Be present, Be available.
Allow your mind to rest in the simplicity and
awarness of being.

In Beauty,

Jackie
