Breathe and You Know (aka 'Breathe, You Are Alive')

Words & Music: Sr Annabel Laity

Keyboards and vocals: Katy Siu

Breathe and you know

… that you are alive

… that all is helping you

… that you are the world

… that the flower is breathing too

Breathe for yourself and you breathe for the world

Breathe in compassion and breathe out joy.

Breathe and be one

… with the air that you breathe

… with the river that flows

… with the earth that you tread

… with the fire that glows

Breathe and you break the thought of birth and death

Breathe and you see impermanence is life.


… for your joy to be steady and calm

… for your sorrow to flow away

… to renew every cell in your blood

… to renew the depth of consciousness

… and you dwell in the here and now

… and all you touch is new and real. ♪
