Take the breath as a monad, a microcosm.
For each of us, the whole world reverberates within the fathom-long frame of our bodies. The "all" resonates in six keys on the sounding boards of our six senses.
But the whole of our resonate flesh also, in turn, reverberates in the breath.
Each breath gathers into one monad a microcosm of the world.
Each breath rings in subtle synchrony with what I'm tasting, what I'm seeing, what I'm feeling, what I'm hoping, what I'm thinking, where I'm sitting.
Can I see it? Can I read in my breath the whole world respiring?
