in this way:

When you breathe in, experience breathing in.
When you breathe out, be fully conscious that
you are breathing out.
If you cherish and practice... continue...

vertical line I don't know. Why don't you decide?

"Upon viewing images produced by a camera on the rocking side of an erupting volcano, one might suppose that their relative motion followed from a subjective conscious within the volcano. These properties might also be attributed to the camera or its various components as well." (From here.)

vertical line The gunslinger calmly looked up at the figure, poised as a silutete against the bright  shimmering sun.
"This is to easy" He tought for himself as he unholstered the lef side gun. He should have switched the guns, the Mega blaster* had long since run out of power back after he came back here on earth. He steadied his aim on his left forearm when all of a sudden..

*Gunslinger 8 "Mars and the mountain of madness"
