A meditation


I sit comfortably

I relax my muscles,

Starting from the tip of my head

Until the tip of my toes

I relax my jaw muscles

The muscles between my eyebrows

My shoulders

My knees

I sit with my back straight, so that my chest and neck are open

My legs are folded

I take deep breaths

When words come through my mind

To tell me what I'm doing

Or to fill me with dread or other emotions

I intentionally wash them away

I wash away the words

With the river of my being

The current keeps going, flowing

I watch my emotions as they come and go

I watch them, I am not them.

They come and go, they wash away

The river keeps going

I breath



I listen to my breath

I listen to the sounds around me

I breath

With each inhale I welcome the air into my stomach

I bring oxygen and energy into every part of me

With each exhale I gently let the air out

I listen

I breath

Words and thoughts are streams in the current

I don't let them linger

I don't struggle, either

I let everything loose

I breath.
