As an elementary and subtle process, our breath gives us our life:
It affects our being and consciousness and is the pervading point of contact that connects us to a greater whole.
As an archetypal process it collapses duality: it is simultaneously a point of beginning and end.
It is the up, the down,
the in, the out,
the positive, the negative,
action and stillness.
Within it, it holds the centre.
A centre that holds everything – as a point of origin we venture from it and navigate the world.
And to it we all eventually return.
