Breath

Find talks and articles

By Joan Dashwood

Breathing is All.
Breath is life (as any Asthmatic will tell you)
But remember
Behind the breathing there is other Breath
and yet the same breath.
When you breath in the tummy rises,
When you breath out the tummy falls,
Yet
The Soul breathes at the same time
But not in the same time.
When you are breathing in you are taking.
When you are breathing out you are giving.
Isn’t it significant
That the out breath is longer than the in breath?
That is balance.
