Everything is a matter of perspective. The decisions we make in the course of our lives determine the life that we lead and all too often the decisions we make are no decisions. We let life happen around us, without jumping into it and making it our own.
Take for example, our breath.
Most of us, don’t even give it a second thought. Relegated to the subconscious mind, we delegate the functioning of the very thing that gives us life to the unconscious mind, believing that it would take up far too much of our conscious mind to think about the process of breathing.
Imagine having to consciously inhale and exhale 24/7 for the rest of your life. It is completely understandable that we would make this decision.
And yet . . .
If the unconscious mind is in charge of our breathing process, it would also seem possible that the life we receive from the breath we take could be unconscious too. After all, what we put into life is what we get out of life, no?
When we realise our breath is what gives us life, our relationship to our breath completely changes. Science tell us we can go weeks without food, days without water, but only moments without air. Our breath is sacred. It is what connects us to life. And the very same breath that connects us to life also allows us to disconnect from a way of life we no longer want.
The inhale and the exhale are such powerful tools of transformation. Tools that most of us do not even know we have.
I speak more about this in The Mosaic Course I am writing in the section called The Practices of The Four Connections.
But until the course comes out, for now, just breathe in and breathe out. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. And know that I support you in your process of breathing more consciously. Love yourself in every inhalation and exhalation.
Know that we are here with you. We want to hear of your victories and your frustrations. We are here to listen. To validate and acknowledge you on your journey. Our practice together validates the process. We are the breath that rises and falls together.
The beauty of it is, even if you do nothing, you are still doing something. You are continuing to breath in and out. And, until that moment comes when your breath stops, you are still able to become more conscious of the way life enters you. We invite you to discover the magnificence of the ordinary within you, for the more consciously you breathe, the more consciously you live the life you live.
The Mosaic Course will be available July 4th, 2019. To get more information or to pre-register, email me at danny@TheMosacOnline.com
