Sitting, I Say Thank You

Sitting here quietly, I am aware of my breath coming into my body and going out again.

I breathe in ……and I breathe out.

Because I am breathing, I know I am alive.

I say, thank you. Thank you for life.

I breathe in ……and I breathe out.

As I sit quietly, I am aware that other people around me are breathing.

Because they are breathing, I know they are alive.

I say thank you. Thank you for the companionship on this journey.

Thank you for not leaving me here alone….

I breathe in….and I breathe out.

And as I sit quietly, aware of my life and the lives of those around me, I feel the walls around me dissolve, and I know that all of the living people and beings of the earth are breathing.

And I know there is life. And that is the gift. And I say thank you.

Thank you for the world, for the living beings and all the goodness of our home planet.

And I breathe in ……and I breathe out…… and I say thank you.
