Awareness of Breathing

January 5, 2014 | Short Reflections

Awareness of breathing
not breath, the physical air,
but the feel of breathing.
A rhythm of breathing
the quiet in breathing,
not the body feel of in-and-out
but the brief moment as it turns. The brief quiet turning
the rhythm of turning
and quiet awareness,
and quiet.
The quiet wisdom
the quiet point growing
around and outward. Awareness within
awareness without any things— the simple quiet.
