Dylan’s Passage of The Day:  Shut Up the Voices in Your Head and Try Just To Breathe and Concentrate on Your Breath: Sounds Easy But it May Take Months To Be Able To Do It!

“To use your breathing to nurture mindfulness, just tune into the feeling of it….the feeling of the breath coming into your body and the feeling of the breath leaving your body. That’s all. Just feeling the breath. Breathing and knowing that you you’re breathing. That does not mean deep breathing or forcing your breathing or trying to feel something special or whether you’re doing it right. It doesn’t mean thinking about you breathing either. It’s just a bare bones awareness of your breath moving in and out.”
