My head just cleared. I’ve been dealing with a horrible cold and cough. It has encouraged mindfulness, though not an open, expansive mind but a rather small mind as nothing much can enter and move through. My focus has been on breath and the effort involved when air and mucus seem to battle for space. I’ve been given an opportunity to notice how I receive and utilize air.
I’m grateful to feel “back” and yet perhaps there is a place for the break for an even greater appreciation of ease in breath.
I’m with ease in the words of Meister Eckhart: If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
