What Are You Thinking?
Our breath reminds us that the Now is always accessible to us. Connecting to it, we find ourselves just being. Just being, we find ourselves content.
This meditation reminds us that happiness is not something we chase, but rather something we return to again and again. Furthermore, it reminds us that we can use our breath to welcome wanted feelings into our being and let go of anything that no longer serves us.
Connecting with my breath, I found myself just being in the moment. Bringing my awareness to my heart while continuing to focus on my breath, I felt my heartbeat bathed in warmth. Attaching words to my inhale, I felt them grow in my heart while I was still at the top of my inhale. On my exhale, I invited anything that was keeping me from my natural state of happiness to leave. After doing this technique of using my breath in this way, I found myself entering a blissful state. Indeed, I chose to feel this way and I am happy now.
Because we have been given free will and choice, we have the opportunity to change how we want to feel in any given moment. Knowing that it is our thoughts that get us out of our happy state, we must become aware of what we are thinking. Knowing this, we get to choose which thoughts to entertain and which ones to let go of. Ask yourself...what are you thinking? Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
