Everything is changing moment to moment. No two moments are the same just as no two breaths are the same. In this meditation, Carla-Jo has us explore our breath in a focused awareness in the body and then expand it to include open awareness in the body.
Getting settled in my chair, I brought focused awareness to the areas where I often feel my breath, such as the air flowing in and out of my nostrils and my chest and belly rising and falling. Every now and then I noticed thoughts enter my mind and how they changed moment to moment. I brought my attention back to my breath and just sat with it for awhile, taking note of how each one of my breaths changed moment to moment. Opening my awareness to include other areas in the body where I felt my breath, I noticed how my upper back moved with each breath. I noticed how my thighs even move ever so subtle with each breath. I expanded my awareness even further and noticed subtle sounds occurring in my body as well as more lurid sounds occurring in my surroundings. Whether my awareness is focused or open, one thing is for sure. With each changing moment, I am aware that I am aware. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
