this is the sound of breathing

this....
Is a year for meditation
as I lay in bed last night
waking still
I instinctively
started to breath in
and breath out
focusing
on that breath
the breath of life
and trying to relax
and breath away
the thoughts
and it helped
it was like a fish
being put back into
the water
after being on dry land
for so long
but once back in the water
my system took over
and I knew what to do
just breath
focus on the moment
watch the thoughts flow past
observe them coming and going
but not play with them
not examine them
or dive into them
they are dangerous
and distractions
must relax
must breath
must let God find me
underneath
all of this debris
must find my self
my higher self
but still not seek or grasp
just breath
focus on breath
on life within
which is really the spirit
that was created
that speaks sometimes
to me.

Namaste my dear sister Pippi. I see now the relevence of your comment on the breath of Brahma. We are truly one mind, often is the case of such synchronicity. A great example of the group mind is found in the observations of patent offices around the world. It is very common for a new invention to have been discovered by multiple people at the same time.

I loved your post because it is a wonderful example of the power of the NOW moment. Meditation allows us to still our minds, find peace and inner truth. Many eastern traditions incorporate intentional and focused breathing with meditation to achieve higher planes of truth.

In Lak' esh, my sister Pippi, finding love in quiet reflection...
