Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:32

Narrator: Female

Dragon Train Excerpt:

With a determined look the dragon stepped outside the cave. Tonight, the dragon was going to find out what the train did. A soft Hmmm filled the air and the dragon new the train was arriving. So, the dragon extended its wings and caught the wind, gracefully lifting up off the ground.  Once again, the dragon followed the train to the beach. Following the train as it continued on past the beach, the dragon waved at Paula the blue penguin, and Benji the bucket. Then the train began to slow down, more and more until it stopped. The dragon also glided to a stop, hovering above the train, and closely observing.

There was a whoosh sound, and people began to pour out of the train.  The dragon looked to see where they were coming from, and noticed the train had doors on each segment.  Once some people were off, more people stepped on.  The curious dragon grew excited as the train began to humm again.  Then slowly it started to move.  As the train rolled along the air grew colder, and the land looked white.  The train tracks began to slope down, until the track sat right on top of the land, no longer elevated.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud and relax into the feeling of lightness.
