While meditating on the beach breathing in the warm salt air …
Breathe in … Splash … Breathe out … Splash. Waves moving rhythmically against the beach are the Earth’s breath. Each time the wave hits the shoreline, it is likened to a nice long breath. Slow. Even. Meditatively long yoga breaths. These relaxing, repetitive waves are constantly in motion. They never stop. The water is always in motion. Just like the breath of each human, it is an instinctive, involuntary action. Sometimes, it gets a little rough to breathe. Sometimes, the waves get a little rough too. When we breathe in fresh clean air, breathing is easier. When we keep our water clean, the waves flow smoother. We are a part of this Earth. Breathe deeply and feel connected. We are one.
How is your breath today?
Take a nice long breath slowly in and relax. Exhale.
