The Mind and the breath

The mind is always in thinking mode, so is its nature.
Our heart beats, our nose smells and our brains thinks !

Thoughts both pleasant and unpleasant take us away from the present moment.
The present moment is where consciousness exits.

You are sitting in a comfortable, safe place yet you can be miserable if your mind is stuck in sad or negative thinking.
Our mind creates this reality to which our body reacts our shoulders get tight our breathing becomes shorter our muscles tense up.

The body reacts to the mental activity as if it is real as if it is actually happening.

The truth is that all of that is not happening it is only state of our mind that is in constant change.

The breath is always in the present moment.

And the breath is connected to the mind and body.

If we just focus on our breath this gently detaches us from the mind and it activities.
The breath brings us in the now where there is a lot of peace.
It is also the only truth that really exists.

So when you get stressed, breathe slowly and focus on  the breath
