Third Month Meditation
For some reason, the months of January and February were not to my liking. I found myself tense over nothing, feeling oddly out of sorts, unsure of whatever task I was working on.
One day, I saw the above picture on Esther's emakesart blog. It was a beautifully constructed journal page and it reminded me to breathe. I have practiced deep breathing in the past but not for quite awhile.
Taking a deep breath from way down and then letting it out slowly was a sure cure for what ailed me. The lovely thing about it is that it can be done anytime, anywhere. For those few seconds of concentrated breathing the world goes away. Breathing in the air I become part of the universe, and breathing out gives me peace.
Thank you to Esther for allowing me to show you her works and for reminding me to breathe.
