breathing in, breathing out

August 24, 2011

Breathing in, breathing out.
Breathing in, breathing out.
I am blooming as a flower.
I am fresh as a dew.
I am solid as a mountain.
I am firm as the earth.
I am free.
Breathing in, breathing out.
Breathing in, breathing out,.
I am water reflecting.
What is real, what is true.
And I feel there is space.
Deep inside of me.
I am free; I am free; I am free.

– Thich Nhat Hanh

  1. I said this slowly aloud as I breathed in and out. When I got to the first “I am free,” I looked up and saw sail boats gliding past my window.
