Breath …

Part of the rhythm of being … a power house of energy … combustion and consumption, complementing action and thinking.

Breath:  the raise and fall of the ribcage, the dance of the diaphragm, an exchange mechanism of life, conveyor of air, one of the alchemists elements a component of complex web of interactions without which life and sentient might be absent from our world.

Breath … of life … in life … for life … without which there is … no life.

Coffee …

Presently my drug of choice … not sure of all its chemical, physical and mental effects … probably like all the others … best in moderation … note to self accompany all cups of coffee with a glass of water …

Chatting, smiling, sharing … going for a coffee can save a life … that is the power of coffee and chatting … just being there for someone …

Sometimes we want the chat for ourselves and we don’t even know …

image was a Robin

Robins always come close given the opportunity … they seem fearless … in the garden they always prompt a conversation … even if I am only talking to myself 🙂

Believing …

Our beliefs are sometimes the hidden engines of our actions and reactions … some beliefs we are conscious of and can update and adjust … others are hidden in our biases and prejudices and so ingrained we are not always aware of them … watching our own behaviour and responses to events and people can help us be vigilant and understand ourselves … and our underlying beliefs and assumptions … but this is not always easy.

Rain …

Drops of water, of variable size, travelling through the atmosphere to collide with something, assuming the drops don’t get blown back up or frozen into hail.

Rain one of the many forms of the water of life, we are allegedly some 70% water (H2O). How many times have some molecules of water been up and down from ground to atmosphere and back?

How many molecules have never moved but oscillate on the spot in an icefield or snowfield?

We might want to look more closely at the timeline for H2O and its many forms and phases.

POISE …

Balance, composure, equanimity, character, flexibility, agility …

If … as the Rudyard Kipling poem says you can deal with the twin imposters … ” … victory and defeat …” and stay calm and continue then is when ones true ” … POISE …” is evident.

Physical, Emotional, Spiritual and Intellectual … Oneness!

PESIO or more memorably … POISE … The physical oneness of spirit, emotion and intellect.

The wholeness of just BEING …
