Do I know that I’m breathing? Sometimes I forget
In the everyday business I put myself through.
So I’m given a hiccup, a belch, or a yawn
By the forces of nature which I depend on
Because I can’t remember some things I must do.
Have I come to know air as a vital asset?
I can use it to focus on since I’ve learned how.
Things I need to distract myself from are many.
Thoughts that carry resistance, by breath I release
To God’s infinite knowing. I find inner peace
Through a technique of breathing that’s just right for me.
It’s the best way I know to relax and allow.
The flow inward and outward of life giving air
Parallels with digestion. All cyclic function
Makes a pump of the body in integral ways.
If all systems are synchronized the body stays
Easily and rightly in its best condition.
Breathing is something that should be given some care.
Make your conscious attention to your breath your friend.
It will lower your blood pressure and calm your nerves.
Clarity and new insights will replace all doubt.
Any moment you have cannot be one without
The continuing cycle that all life deserves.
It’s the best advice anyone could recommend.
