Breathing – Thich Nhat Hanh

BREATHING

Breathing in, I experience calm in me.

Breathing out, I smile to the calm in me.

Breathing in, I experience joy in me.

Breathing out, I smile to the joy in me.

Breathing in, I experience equanimity in me.

Breathing out, I smile to the equanimity in me.

Breathing in, I experience openness in me.

Breathing out, I smile to the openness in me.

Breathing in, I experience happiness in me.

Breathing out, I smile to the happiness in me.

In Times of Difficulty – Thich Nhat Hanh

I am blooming as a flower,

I am fresh as the dew,

I am solid as a mountain,

I am firm as the Earth.

I am free.

Breathing in, breathing out,

I am water reflecting what

is real, what is true;

And I feel there is space 

deep inside of me. I am free.

You can practice with this verse in times of difficulty and danger, when you need to keep your cool to know what to do and what not to do. For instance, suppose you’re sitting in an airplane, and suddenly you hear an announcement that the plane is being hijacked. Rather than panicking and doing things that may make the situation even more dangerous, you can come back to your breathing and start to practice the first line of this poem. – Thich Nhat Hanh.

Falling In Love with the Earth by Thich Nhat Hanh.

Falling In Love With The Earth

This beautiful, bounteous, life-giving planet we call Earth has given birth to each one of us, and each one of us carries the Earth within every cell of our body.

We and the Earth are one

The Earth is our mother, nourishing and protecting us in every moment–giving us air to breathe, fresh water to drink, food to eat and healing herbs to cure us when we are sick. Every breath we inhale contains our planet’s nitrogen, oxygen, water vapor and trace elements. When we breathe with mindfulness, we can experience our interbeing with the Earth’s delicate atmosphere, with all the plants, and even with the sun, whose light makes possible the miracle of photosynthesis. With every breath we can experience communion. With every breath we can savor the wonders of life.

We need to change our way of thinking and seeing things. We need to realise that the Earth is not just our environment. The Earth is not something outside of us. Breathing with mindfulness and contemplating your body, you realise that you are the Earth. You realise that your consciousness is also the consciousness of the Earth. Look around you–what you see is not your environment, it is you.

When you realize the Earth is so much more than simply your environment, you’ll be moved to protect her in the same way as you would yourself. This is the kind of awareness, the kind of awakening that we need, and the future of the planet depends on whether we’re able to cultivate this insight or not. The Earth and all species on Earth are in real danger. Yet if we can develop a deep relationship with the Earth, we’ll have enough love, strength and awakening in order to change our way of life.
