Closer than the Air I Breathe
Here, now. I take a breath, a plunge. Filling my body, filling my lungs... with air.
Love and peace surge inward like a tidal wave. I am whole. I am contented, I am free.
Scattered thoughts that would pull me out of this ocean of presence are put neatly into ships and sent sailing away.
My consciousness expands to my body and beyond. I am embodied, I am alive. My whole being is a prayer, a possibility, a purpose.
I have clarity. I have focus. Mind and body unite to the rhythms of waves flowing in and out.
Even as I rise up from my mat, I continue breathing. I continue being. Within me, beyond me, spirit is here... closer than the air I breathe.
