Breath Mantra Meme for True Belonging

Michelangelo: Hands of God and Adam, Detail from The Creation of Adam, from The Sistine Chapel

Being longs for you. This is an urgent longing. Your need to be intimately connected with Being is just as urgent. Perhaps you’ve already heard the call of Being, in dreams, or even in the things you’ve heard, read, or experienced. You can respond to that call by means of a simple breathing meditation.

Deep, conscious breathing is among the simplest and most rewarding forms of meditation. Mantras help by giving your mind something to focus on so that it can escape its own chatter. The Mindful Bard breath mantras can be practised at any time of day, whether you’re actually meditating or even just waiting in line, trying to fall asleep, pausing while your friend answers their phone, or enjoying a beautiful sunset. Each pair of words or phrases is to be spoken inwardly while breathing in and out, usually the first on the in-breath and the second on the out-breath. But of course, how you do it is up to you. Be well.
