The Breath

I sit in the inky darkness of the early hours and I am breathing. Nothing much is happening outside of me. Silence engulfs me. And I embrace the silence around me.

My internal landscape is on another tangent. Thoughts come and go. Feelings come and go. How I view life keeps changing from moment to moment depending on how I feel. The same things that gave me deep despair and a heavy heart lightens with each breath.

I allow myself the luxury to feel light. That which is my natural state – feeling light – has become a labour of love. It is totally worth it to labour and find the light in me.

I see that my lungs is not straining any more. My breathing has led me to lightness of my heart and love for myself. I see myself deepening the quality of my life.
