Is it a little problem or a big problem? Whichever it may be, what ever is in your way is on your way. Funny things happen on the way to enlightenment. Enlightenment is each day, each breath; your own definition. 

You define your own dharma. 

Either way, enter a full circle of breath

Some call it compassion, loving-kindness, seizing the day, etc. It’s entirely your own expression and alive inside of all of us. We all have those things that set us free. And it changes, but please embrace it. 

Today a cup of tea did it for me, last July a bike saved my life, right now it’s music. What connects all of this? I’m inquiring about the things that, depending our our attention or perception, set us free or keep us living.  The language of compassion  has no words and exits in our breath. Music, tea, biking, smiling, breathing breathing breathing. 

It is the least we can do. Mindfulness.

Is it a little breath or a big breath?

Don’t think about it, just live it.
