The art for
an air of mindfulness.
peace of mind.
Now, what I do find effective during the moments throughout the day that cause distress or frustration, is an activity that doesn't really have a formal caption. I suppose there are all kinds of people out there who could identify it and give it some type of creative label or tell me that there's no point in naming it because it's an ancient practice from the mountain region of... and it's called... And that would be great if they can, but I'll just tell you, for me it's known as, Breathe. That's right. If I quietly breathe in and out, and watch the whole rhythmic process with intent, as in, be mindful to the harmonious movement of my lungs or the air passing through my nasal passages, over a short period of time, seconds even, my Consciousness makes me aware that I'm no longer restlessness and I'm now in a state of contentment. In fact, if it's done sincerely, my thinking mind, that set the whole unsettling emotions into motion to begin with, will have become so distracted by the breathing, it will have forgotten why it stirred up a state of distress in the first place. This is key, because this is what opens up a space in my mind for the wiser part of me, my Mind, with a capital M, or Conscious Intelligence if you prefer, to get a solution or new idea through.
I have no official way of confirming whether my breathing approach is actually slipping me into a higher state of Consciousness, but I can tell you that I am very aware that these mini moments of calm feel like a breathe of fresh air during times of stress, and if that's not heaven, then I don't know what is. And that's why I thought some calligraphy art, with the word 'Breathe' on it, could bring to mind, some peace.
