Our mind will feel free from the everyday stress and chatter and we will feel refreshed.
When the otherwise incessant flow of our distracting thoughts are calmed through concentrating on the breath, our mind becomes calm and clear.
Although breathing meditations are only a preliminary stage of meditation, they can be quite powerful. We learn from this practice that it is possible to experience inner peace and contentment just by controlling the mind and without having to depend at all upon external conditions and supports.
This feeling of contentment and well-being help us cope with the difficulties of daily life.
So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind. Many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress. Just by doing breathing meditation for ten or fifteen minutes each day, we are able to reduce this stress.
We will experience a calm, spacious feeling in the mind, and many of our usual problems will fade away. Difficult situations will become easier to deal with, and our interaction with other people, and our relationships with others will gradually improve.
