Every Breath is a Gift

Book coverThe basis for the practice of meditation is appreciation. Every breath we take is a gift, naturally pure and good. We appreciate every pebble in the riverbed, every apple on the tree. Ordinary activities are in themselves powerful and worth appreciating.

From “How to Meditate” in Mindfulness in Action by Chögyam Trungpa, page 14
