“By practicing mindfulness we can change the way our brain functions.
Most important, we can change it in the direction of balance
and in fact in the direction of kindness.”
I breathe in awareness.
I breathe out truth.
I breathe in stillness.
I breathe out the whole being of now.
I breathe in wisdom.
I breathe out wholeness.
I breathe in release.
I breathe out forgiveness.
In this breath, I am still.
I sit or lay comfortably.
My spine is straight.
My feet touch the floor, if I am sitting.
My hands are loosely in my lap.
Or my index finger touches my thumb, tip to tip,
ever so lightly.
My eyes are closed,
or slightly open, looking down.
I focus on my breath as my anchor.
I return to it as the energy of life.
It breathes me,
and I become the breath.
I pay attention to how the breath blesses each part of my body,
freeing it, liberating it, loving it.
I realize that my breath is love
and inside each breath
love breathes me.
