Touching with mindfulness

"If you see something along the way that you want to touch with your mindfulness - the blue sky, the hills, a tree, or a bird - just stop, but while you do, continue breathing mindfully. You can keep the object of your contemplations alive by means of mindful breathing. If you don't breathe consciously, sooner or later your thinking will settle back in, and the bird or the tree will disappear. Always stay with your breathing."
