To breathe properly is to live properly,
Believed the ancient Eastern mountain men.
When somebody hurts your feelings
And you feel that you are sinking,
When somebody kicks you
For reasons unknown to you,
When the enemy points the gun at you,
You simply have to breathe properly.
Breathing properly eliminates fear.
It stabilizes your heartbeat,
Your adrenaline reaches a normal flow
And you look at the opponent in the eye.
While giving and forgiving, breathe properly.
Your reward may be whiplashes of sour words
And yet, continue breathing properly.
What others think of you is secondary.
It is not who you think you are
That holds you back
But what you think you are mot.
Keep breathing properly.
When you think you are becoming old,
When you have a difficult problem to face,
When you are planning for projects ahead,
In melancholy and in malady,
Just breathe properly.
In happiness as well, breathe properly.
The task is hard,
Life is hard,
Stop not, Breathe properly.
