Mind and breath. Connected both physically and metaphorically. Without one, the other disappears. Mind supports breath and breath supports mind. We are all on a spectrum here. Sometimes they work together and support each other, sometimes not so much. Often the mind wanders off and the breath is forgotten.
Find some quiet and gather the mind and breath. Notice the chest rise and fall. Allow the mind space to roam but just watch it as you focus on the sensations of the chest as the breath transpires. Do this repeatedly, 3 minutes a day or one or two breaths, once or twice a day.
Congratulations, you have dropped your ego clinging for a moment. Now the project is to string those moments of dropping ego clinging together closer and closer.
I hope you have an awesome day!
