New Mindfulness Verse

During the Spring Lectures and Retreats, Thich Nhat Hahn has been suggestingwe 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.
