Walking along the 10 ruled path was fairly light and generally useful...until the last rule---"the double helix of inner knowing" lost at birth?....cryptic knots or koans tied to a rather elegant if not simplistic previous list of 9 is offputting--maybe a hook was intended and I am supposed to say..: oh wow, gimme that double helix dose of ineer knowing....it must be the real thing because it's so organic of a thing like DNA..right..."---or is it just a simple commercial for a new brand of looking within and getting calm and seeing what we are and that we can let it all just go and be which has no name...or many...like "paying attention"...oy...am I on a judgemental tangent??? or in a convolted way pointing out the discongruity to the intital approach culminated in a "mysterious" nonsense....not to say that nonsense doesn't have it's place...well now...and now and then...back to now thanks..you double helix's you

in my experience--when being attentive--there is no gap between the in breath and the out breath.if you are breating "unconsiously".. there is nothing there.. it is either ---in-- or --out---

"Pay attention to the gap -- the gap between two thoughts, the brief, silent space between words in a conversation, between the notes of a piano or flute, or the gap between the in-breath and the out-breath".

of course i could be wrong. :)
