In and Out

"The practice of mindful breathing may be very simple, but the effect can be great.

Focusing on our in-breath, we release the past, we release the future, we release our projects. We ride on that breath with all our being.

Our mind comes back to our body, and we are truly there, alive, in the present moment. We are home.

Just one breath, in and out, can make us fully present and fully alive again, and then the energy of mindfulness is there in us. Mindfulness is the energy that makes us fully present, fully alive in the here and now."
