Because

Because - when I get quiet...I can begin to listen.

Because - when I listen...I can begin to hear.

Because - when I hear...I can begin to feel.

Because - when I feel....I can begin to hear the sound of my own heart's beating.

Because  - when I hear the sound of my own heart's beating...I can begin to listen to the rhythm of my breath.

Because - when I listen to the rhythm of my breath...I can begin to quiet my perseverating monkey mind.

Because - when I quiet my perseverating monkey mind mind...I can begin again.

To listen.

To hear.

To feel.
