In- and Out-breath Minding

With body controlled and erect, intentionally bring presence of mind to the area of the face and mind the out-breath; mind the in-breath;
 
with a long out-breath think: 'My out-breath was long', and thus become consciously aware;
with a long in-breath think: 'My in-breath was long', and thus become consciously aware;
 
with a short out-breath think: 'My out-breath was short', and thus become consciously aware;
with a short in-breath thinks: 'My in-breath was short', and thus become consciously aware.

And again, deeper than that, mind the in- and out-breathing, thinking:
 
'I will breath out experiencing all the body';
'I will breath in experiencing all the body';
 
'Calming down the confounded body I will breath out';
'Calming down the confounded body I will breath in';
