we rely less and less
on what is called "information"
until our actions arise from emptiness,
and everything is done naturally.
From Tao Te Ching, Chapter 48
if you have not yet become
the tongue of God,
be an ear.
Now the breath seems to neither rise nor fall, neither open nor close. It is so ultra-slow and soft that if a down feather were held in front of the nostrils, it wouldn't move. Your mind merges with the breath, as though the breath is your entire world. The belly is pleasantly warm.
You are like a mother nurturing her womb with caring, compassionate awareness.
You are breathing like a baby in the womb of creation.
Enjoy as long as you wish
(or if you must look at a clock,
I suggest twenty to thirty minutes).
and I wonder why I ever thought to use language.
