Then we breathe

Sometimes there is only silence
It’s dark
It’s cold
There is still
The moon shines

We sit alone
We observe
We wait
We see
We hear

The inhale of breath
The exhale follows
There’s the gap
Between the exhale
And the new breath

There in the gap
There is life
There is the moment
There is the connection with all
There is the universe

Silence is life
The stillness teaches
The moment unfolds
Without sound
Then we breathe

Exhale

When we exhale, as in breathing, and allow everything to let go in the body, it releases all resistance, muscles relax, tension eases, we feel relaxed and at peace. However, to even notice our breathing, we have to be conscious, awake and away from our thoughts and mind.

This is what happens to us when we let go of the ego, the story, the mind and it’s repetitive negative thought patterns. We release not only tension in our body, but we also allow our soul to be, for our essence to shine. We let go of suffering, resistance, negative emotions, we free ourselves to be our true selves. We experience inner peace in the mind, body and soul.

Exhaling is something we do millions of times in a lifetime, each one an opportunity to let go, each one a chance to free ourselves and ready ourselves for new life in the next inhale of breath. Each unfolding moment a new breath, a new moment, a new opportunity to be life.
