Daily Buddha

The Breath Invites Expansiveness

“With each inhale, our lungs fill and our rib cage expands gently outward and upward, similar to an umbrella stretching open. With each exhale, the umbrella in released, allowing us to relax. Because the breath literally expands our upper torso, it can create a feeling of expansiveness within us. This can make us feel more powerful, reminding us that we can always become more open and spacious in our lives simply by breathing. Several times throughout your day today, draw your attention to your breath, noticing whether the experience of your physical expansiveness invites you in to a more expansive sense of self.”
