The breath is our first portal to the peace of expanded consciousness, accessible at any time and in any place.
Stress and anxiety fuel excessive thinking, and make it very difficult for us to open, and simply be and rest in immediate Presence.
Through consciously bringing attention to the breath, the mind begins to still. As we let go of the habits of repetitive thinking, we find the deeper rhythms of our being.
Through the conscious breath, we realize that we are always held within the great rhythms of life, and sustained by the great rythmic pulses of receiving and giving through which life continually unfolds.
We can return to our essential nature, and find peace, at any moment, as we gather into ourselves on the breath, into the Heart of our Being, deep within, and allow the expansion of the breath from that still centre.
