“Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7
How quick it can be taken away from us. How important it is to every moment. It is automatic to breathe in and out. Yet if it stopped, we would not longer be around.
I heard that during the day some of us actually hold our breath without knowing it. People do meditation and yoga so we remember to breathe. We take ourselves out of the fast paced life we choose to live to teach us to come back to the breath we forget we had.
Have you ever woke to feeling immediately grateful for your breath? For another day to breathe again. It’s an amazing tone you set for your day when you start there.
If you are having one of those days, or just soaking in a moment stolen away, close your eyes and remember to breathe.
Focus on life giving breath that allows you to survive. Breathe in. Breathe out.
Now stay a bit longer and go beyond survival. Breathe in. Breathe out.
Now choose to take that breath and really live the life you have been given.
Now open your eyes….different isn’t it? Now go live!
