Psalm 119:1-8
Breath and Spirit

It is no accident that ‘breath’ and ‘spirit’ are the same word. This watching and synchronizing of the breath is a spiritual practice of great depth, especially when practiced regularly over a period of years, as regular worshippers have always done in many traditions.  It may be in fact that we cannot do spiritual work at all until we begin to trust, listen to, and follow our breathing.
