I look down at my own belly. It certainly isn’t going in and out. It’s certainly not relaxed, but tight and held in. I notice my breathing. It’s so shallow and in my chest. Where does the breath go? Where doesn’t it go?
I place my hands on my body. One on my heart and one on my belly. I close my eyes and allow myself to take a deep breath. The belly fills with air as I inhale. It goes back in as I exhale. With this breath my body relaxes. It’s cleansed. I allow the blood to flow with all the hormones and nutrients in it.
I return to a natural state of childhood where I can just be present and live in the moment. A moment of harmony and serenity. A moment of acceptance and love. A moment of life. Take a deep belly breath. Try it. See where it takes you. See where you go.
