Precious Breath Meditation
Tigers above, tigers below.
This is actually the predicament that we are always in,
in terms of our birth and death. Each moment is just what it is.
It might be the only moment of our life;
it might be the only strawberry we’ll ever eat.
We could get depressed about it, or we could finally appreciate it and delight in the preciousness of every single moment of our life.
