How do we get the mind to participate with the heart? The heart operates as nature does, on the same wave pattern.
Learning to meditate, then, can be quite simple. It can as simple as learning to slow the breathing so that it begins to feel the way it feels to hold a lit candle while walking across a room in a manner conscious not to extinguish the candle. The flame moves and responds in the flow of what is, and it remains alight. Meanwhile, we can pay attention to what we feel inside the body in the same moment. When we do this, we dial in to a frequency of nature. From there, we begin to get in touch with our essence.
The breath provides a gateway to open up to an entirely different way of interpreting life. And when our interpretation expands, so does our experience.
