Feelings (and thoughts in my case (-:) come and go like clouds in a windy sky.  Conscious breathing is my anchor. -

Wonderful Moment 

Our breath is like a bridge connecting our bodies and minds. 

In our daily lives, our bodies may be in one place and our minds somewhere else - in the past or in the future. This is called a state of distraction. The breath is a connection between the body and the mind. When you begin to breath in and out mindfully, your body will come back to your mind and your mind will go back to your body. 

You will be able to realize the oneness of body and mind and become fully present and fully alive in the here and now. You will be in a position to touch life deeply in the moment. This is not difficult. Everyone can do it.

What's the point of walking meditation? Why do I practice sitting meditation?

Because I like it. There's no point doing these practices if you don't enjoy them.

It's not hard labour. Every breath can bring us peace, joy and freedom.
