As I breathe in, I know this is my in-breath. As I breathe out, I know this is my out-breath. As I breathe in, I invite Thầy to breathe in with me. As I breathe out, I invite Thầy to breathe out with me. Breathing in, I see Thầy not just in his physical form, but Thầy is love, is my mindfulness, is the compassion I generate. Breathing out, I carry Thầy in the present moment and into the future. Breathing in, I generate gratitude to the teachings, the way of life that Thầy has shown me. Breathing out, I embrace that gratitude. Breathing in, Thầy, you are free. Breathing out, I am also free. Breathing in, this is a continuation moment. Breathing out, Thầy, I see you smiling. Breathing in, life is in me and all around me. Breathing out, I am grateful to life in me and all around me.
This guided meditation is offered by Brother Chân Pháp Hữu as part of The Way Out Is In podcast, episode 20, “A Cloud Never Dies: The Passing of Zen Master Thích Nhất Hạnh.”
