Breathing and Attention
Breathing and attention are like brother and sister. Where the breath goes so does the attention. When the breath is shallow, attention is shallow. When the breath is deep, attention can be deep. Breathing is the point where the voluntary meets the involuntary. Every breath is an echo of the original one breath. Let the breath be undivided, then when you fully find the point where reality splits into two; it convulses into one. This point has awaited your attention even before you were born.
