Daily Zen - Breathing

My homepage is set to

I was dealing with allergies on top of a cold this weekend, so this quote inspired me as my own breathing ability had gone to hell.

"Now and again, it is necessary to seclude yourself
among deep mountains and hidden valleys
to restore your link to the source of life.
Breathe out and let yourself soar to the ends of the universe;
breathe in and bring the cosmos back inside.
Next, breathe up all the fecundity and vibrancy of the earth.
Finally, blend the breath of heaven and the breath of earth
with that of your own, becoming the Breath of Life itself."

- Morihei Ueshiba
