Breathing

Breathing in,
I see myself as a flower.
I am the freshness
of a dewdrop.
Breathing out,
my eyes have become flowers. Please look at me,
I am looking with the eyes of love.

Breathing in,
I am a mountain, imperturbable,
still,
alive,
vigorous.
Breathing out,
I feel solid.
The waves of emotion can never carry me away.

Breathing in,
I am still water.
I reflect the sky
Faithfully.
Look, I have a full moon
within my heart,
the refreshing moon of the bodhissatva. Breathing out,
I offer the perfect reflection
of my mirror-mind.

Breathing in,
I have become space
without boundaries.
I have no plans left.
I have no luggage.
Breathing out,
I am the moon
that is ailing through the sky of utmost emptiness.
I am freedom.

— Thich Nhat Hanh
