Today I was overcome with how good it can feel just to breathe. Not as a tool to calm down, but just as an appreciative witness to the act. Have you focused your whole attention on your breath recently? Really engaged as the air moves in through the nose, down the trachea, expanding the lungs and inflating the diaphragm? Noticing as it all empties back out again, without any interference on your part? It’s just like the waves moving in and out against the shore. It is surprising how something so constant, so mundane, can be so blissful.
