Why Use The Breath in Meditation?
The breath is a friend of ours - its always with us.
The breath is the most potent and secular form of meditation and can be used anyone irrespective, of their religious or cultural identity.
The breath is a link between the mind and the body.
We can control the breath, or let it work on its own.
We learn about how our own mind works by simply observing the breath.
When the mind is upset, you can notice the breath gets hard and rough.
If you just keep watching the breath, the mind calms down naturally and you will notice the breath getting softer.
