Inspiration in the Spaces

October 30, 2015 § Leave a comment

I was looking at some of the posts this morning on my Facebook page, and in amongst the usual political posts, like page requests, and family updates was this quote from writer Neale Donald Walsch:

Just close your eyes. Breathe. Stop whatever you’re doing for ten seconds and find The Silence. Visit The Quiet. Just for ten seconds. Do it six times today. One minute a day. That’s all it takes. One minute, divided into six parts. Go ahead. Do it now.

Although I am not always one to follow orders or directions, I gave it a try. I found it really did provide a moment of peace. Afterward, I wrote these lyrics:

Breathe

When the world around you gets to be too much
Your grip is kind of weak and you’re losing touch
Just take a look inside and find the silence within

When you feel your life is choking you
No matter what you say or try to do
Take a step back from the edge, then you can begin

To breathe — breathe
Close your eyes and feel the quiet
You’ll see that life is still full of wonder
And dreams can still come true
Breathe — breathe
Give yourself a moment and try it
If you feel yourself going under
All that you’ve got to do —
Is take a moment to breathe

If you feel you’re spinning out of control
There’s a battle deep inside for your very soul
Close your eyes and listen to the beat of your heart

Take a look inside and find a quiet place
All you need’s a moment and a little space
Simply give yourself a chance, then you can start

To breathe — breathe
Close your eyes and feel the quiet
You’ll see that life is still full of wonder
And dreams can still come true
Breathe — breathe
Give yourself a moment and try it
If you feel yourself going under
All that you’ve got to do —
Is take a moment to breathe
