A meditation




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


In


Out


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.
