PLEASURE

Our neighborhood meditation group met last night--a small group, but always welcome, no matter how many or how few. In view of the anger many of us are feeling at the many ways our whole country seems to be collapsing into chaos, we spent out time in contemplation of the simple pleasure of the breath. It's a pleasure of body and mind, both, to pay attention to the breath as it comes in, and again as it goes out. The whole length of it. And to allow it to bring pleasure with it--not sensual, quite, though it involves the senses; but holistic, gratifying, healing all at once. At the end of the session, everyone felt better. 

Then we started talking about our social and political unrest and uncertainties...

I imagine it is good to talk things out with like minded people. The breathing exercise sounds wonderful.
