I have done some reading on Plainfoolish and I received this quote in an email today and I think it fits. I also have another new book from Thich Nhat Hanh ordered an on its way. It is called The Energy of Prayer.
“I am breathing in and making my whole body calm and at peace.” It is like drinking a cool glass of lemonade on a hot day and feeling your body become cool inside. When you breathe in, the air enters your body and calms all the cells of your body. At the same time, each “cell” of your mind also becomes more peaceful. The three are one, and each one is all three. This is the key to meditation. Breathing brings the sweet joy of meditation to you. You become joyful, fresh, and tolerant, and everyone around you will benefit.
