Can You Breathe?


Can you breathe
when life has other plans
for you?
Can you breathe
when the illusions
you’ve built
suddenly fall apart?
Breathe when it’s easier,
when there is a soft,
gentle breeze blowing,
when the sun is just rising,
when it is quiet and still,
and you’ll know to breathe
when it’s difficult,
when the storm rages,
the dark night is howling,
and there is extreme noise
and chaos swirling around you.
It is a practice that bears
wonderful gifts.
Establish this positive habit
of remembering to breathe,
and all of life will smile
at the being that you are,
this being that has awakened
to life.
