Meditational Poems: “Breathing”


( Excerpt From Walking in Wisdom by Tarchin Hearn www.greendharmatreasury.orgengaging in the act of breathing.)

Breathing is muscular. It’s tactile. We are not meditating on a concept. You are standing with your eyes closed. Smiling and breathing, feeling the natural movements – a living breathing body. Allow it to flow with its own rhythm. Don’t try to control the breath in any way.


Breathing is warm and moist and intimate.

It permeates with abandonment,

our membranes and organs,

our lips and nostrils and lungs,

totally opening in confidence,

meeting the world, meeting with other.

We breathe in a state of unthinking vulnerability.

Breath by breath, hour by hour,

day and night continuously through every season of being

we draw the unknown other deep into the sensitive tissues of our interior.

Breathing is an act of communion,

a flowing ecstasy of life living the loving

which is the heart core of all beingingness

    Wonderful, it also reminded me of a hymn I’ve always loved, “Breathe on me breath of God.” I think I shall add the hymn to my list of poems to affirm! 🙂
    Thank you for sharing Amira ❤
