Peace comes when our hearts are open like the sky,
vast as the ocean.

Mindfulness is that spacious attention that says, “Yes, this is what’s here and who I am as the loving witness of it all.”
How can we find a freedom of heart in this world of birth and death? We can start by acknowledging that everything is subject to change. Death is an advisor that can give us clarity about what really matters.
Gently acknowledge any strong waves of thought or emotion that pull you away from the breath. Let them rise and fall, then return to breath. Become the mindful loving witness of each breath.
