Why Breathing Is A Miracle


Why Breathing Is A Miracle
Hold your breath — and realize how amazing it is.

To be fully aware of our breath is so amazing! To be aware of the air moving in and then moving out, to just be, with no effort to change or alter it. It changes on its own and becomes fuller and deeper. The whole body is a wave as it happens; I allow my breath to deeply massage every part of the substance I refer to as ‘my’ body. In that moment there is no comprehension of "my." 

These very molecules of air that move in and out of "my" body in this moment have done this same exchange in another moment with every other living thing on earth throughout all time. It's so intimate. Moving in and out of all those living bodies, so close to every soul.  The movement, the rhythm, the awareness of energy moving, which may send a leg spontaneously into involuntary movement. It jerks, it lets go and it relaxes. Again the energy builds, the leg jerks, and I can relax even deeper. Such sweetness!

This morning soon after I awakened, I was experiencing my consciousness. It felt like what Meister Eckhart described as the EYE with which I see God and God sees me, being the same EYE. I used to wonder what that meant. Now when there is a relaxed state of being conscious of consciousness itself, there is a shift. The awareness is not identified as me. It ... Read more

Rediscovering Divine Love


As I sat down to "work" this morning at my computer, I became aware that I felt unfulfilled. I was less than joyfully serene. Life felt like it required an effort. I know it doesn't need to be like that. I know what it is like to feel carried through life, but that wasn't happening, and I wondered what I needed to do to make it happen. I ... Read more

Our world's level of stress seems to be increasing. I hear about it on a personal level from many of the people that I work with.
