New Mindfulness Verse

During the Spring Lectures and Retreats, Thich Nhat Hahn has been suggesting we use this gatha:

In-Out

Breathing in, I know that I am breathing in.

Breathing out, I know that I am breathing out.

Flower-Fresh

Breathing in, I see myself as a flower.

Breathing out, I feel fresh.

Mountain-Solid

Breathing in, I see myself as a mountain.

Breathing out, I feel solid.

Water-Reflecting

Breathing in, I see myself as still as water.

Breathing out, I reflect things as they are.

Space-Free

Breathing in, I see myself as space.

Breathing out, I feel free.
