Infinitely At Ease

“Pink and Yellow Rose”  |  Anthony Satori

“Infinitely at ease
despite so many risks,
with no variation
of her usual routine,
the blooming rose is the omen
of her immeasurable endurance.

Do we know how she survives?
No doubt one of her days
is all the earth and all
of our infinity.”

– Rainer Maria Rilke

A Different Breath

“Truly to sing, that is a different breath.”

— Rilke

The breath used in singing does indeed seem to be a different breath, by its very nature. It shares its essence, it seems to me,  with yoga breathing (pranayama), embodying the same kind of mind-body connection that this spiritual practice aspires to attain. It is the breath of life, of love, and of connection. It is a breath that holds a deeper creative resonance, as referred to in the ancient scriptures and mystic texts. It is a breath that comes not just from the body, but from the heart, from the soul, and from the spirit.
