Barest notice:

of first note is the mantra’s effect on my body, with heart rates settling to a calm and easy rhythm, breath growing ever more subtle, almost imperceptible in its passage, every natural function happening on its own without my interference. There’s only the barest notice now, a faint impression of heart rate and breath until even this is given to the mantra in a final act of letting go.
