Just Breathe...

It is the first thing we do
When experiencing this life.
It is the last thing we do
When we take our final bow.
As physical beings, it is our life
Our sustinence, our miracle.
In meditation, it is our bridge
Between the noise of our minds
And the ensuing silence.
It is our pathway to stillness
It is a vital part of our well-being.
Take a deep breathe.
Awaken to your mind.
Stop the anger
Take a deep breathe…
Enliven your mind.
Free your thoughts.

Your quality of breathe will determine your quality of life.
Breathe deep, let your stomach fill with air
Breathe out and know that you are alive.
Help your body
Breathe deep.
Bring balance
Bring alignment.
Bring about the quietening of the mind…
Know thyself.

The breath of life, the one thing we certainly can’t live without.

So much is taken for granted on a daily basis and I want to bring to the forefront colour, vibrancy, frequency, pensiveness, wonder, reflection, action and energy through my passions.

My art is how I interpret the world around me, it is how I see this life – a palette of unbelievable colours and a sea of energy. The potential every living thing has and the knowledge that everything is a manifestation of a Divine essence is, in itself, pure magic.

    A lovely piece of meditative writing. I know I don’t breathe properly most of the time … and your words are a very good reminder!

    words become action
    action becomes passion
    passion is the soul of ones breath
    and I breathe

  • How beautiful…

    This is so true and so beautifully written.
    As I have been reading this again, I have been breathing deeply. It is so relaxing.We don’t need to be stressed, if we remember to breathe deeply.

  • You are so right – a simple breath is all that it takes to ground you. I’m so glad you followed through on the breathing! :)
