The Quality of Water
In the experience of staying present and breathing in and out, I share this wonderful Thich Nhat Hanh teaching:
Inhale, I've arrived,
Exhale, I'm home.
Inhaling I've arrived to my body, mind, and heart.
Exhale, I release fear.
Inhaling, feeling the beauty of the breath. Exhaling , letting go, letting go, letting go.
The teaching is: water becomes waves, waves become water.
The essence of water does not change.
Honoring the experience of the shift of awareness in every moment.
Moving into this understanding of being present,
arriving at home in your body, mind and heart.
And letting go of any subjectivity that it is not perfect the way it is.
