On Watching the Breath

Updated on January 28, 2015

A brief poem about meditation

Sitting with closed eyes and heart open to the universe

I breathe in

Feeling the rush of cool air to nostril

I breath out

And I find peace

I breathe in

Feeling the rush of cool air to nostril

I breathe out

And I find love

I breathe in

Feeling the rush of cool air to nostril

I breathe out

And I find forgiveness.

A Simple Guide to Meditation

1. Wear comfortable clothing.

2. Find a quiet place. Sit comfortable in a chair or on the floor. Lotus position is not required.

3. Don't try too hard. Just let it come naturally.

4. Begin to inhale and exhale through the nose for at least five minutes.

5. Enjoy the quiet and the stillness.

6. Take time to enjoy "being" and not "doing".

      On that point I totally agree with Blossom.

      I find it so uplifting to meditate on Bible texts, especially the words of Jesus. An interesting hub.
