Relax

Here, in this moment,

Stop and feel what it might mean to relax.

To allow the heaviness of your leg to reveal itself,

To sense the tension in your belly, and then feel it melt away.

So simple, and yet so difficult.

_

Let your awareness rest in your hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders.

Feel the living, breathing body that you are.

Become part of it, with all its tensions and imperfections,

Let it speak to you, tell you what it needs

Let your mind rest, just below your navel.

_

Breathe.

_

We are born knowing this, and we loose it

Chasing our minds into another place,

Losing ourselves, body clothed in

Fear. Tension. Armour.

_

Breathe.

_

Back to the beginning.

Here in this moment,

Relax.
