Breathe Into Being: Awakening to Who You Really Are

Breathe Into Being: Awakening to Who You Really Are

As you begin to pay close attention to the sensations of the breath as it moves through the whole of yourself, you are called to move inward, toward the source, the wellspring, of your life. As you do so, you will experience a profound sense of stillness, of silence, underlying not only your breath but also your thoughts, feelings, and sensations. In short, you are called home to another, more fundamental dimension of yourself. If you can hear this call and don’t resist it, you may discover that you are spontaneously freed from many of the unnecessary mental, emotional, and physical tensions keeping you imprisoned in your narrow self-image and the constricted, impoverished breathing it fosters. You begin to open to and welcome the incredible miracle of aliveness itself. Through this opening and welcoming, your breathing is freed up and your thoughts, feelings, and actions take on new intelligence and meaning. You begin to live your life rooted in the deep, silent reality that connects us all and makes us one family.
