When we soften the breath, the body becomes softer.
When the body becomes softer it offers less resistance to whatever we’re feeling
and whatever we’re feeling has a chance to arise and express itself
without being locked in by the hardness of the body.
So we breathe soft.
And the harder our reality gets the softer we breathe.
And we follow this soft breath, that primal realm deeper than language and form and thought.
