EARTH BREATH

Stay with the breath,

ease and stability infiltrate the mind

Let breath infuse and accompany

 

the mind’s movement,

blissful awareness deepens

As the breath stills,

 

mind settles; as the mind settles,

the breath stills. Weightless, unconfined,

mind carries the body with it

 

within. Heart throughout

with blood-breath

Brain throughout with nerve-breath

 

Embodied throughout

with bone-breath/ Figure and ground,

mind pulses, the body dances

 

with the breath

Each mirrors and elicits the other

There is a rhythm to life

 

It is a given, a part of us

as we are a part of the natural world

Configured throughout

 

with earth-breath

Sense the rhythms, work with them,

play with them,

 

that’s what I tell myself

that’s what I try to do
