I think a lot about breathing which isn’t so silly, is it?
My life and yours depend on the fact we continue to breathe in and out.
I’ve often penciled notes in a diary about this vital subject.
One of my first posts on this blog was “breath” and I’d like to post it again.
You are a conscious living entity
the purpose of life is to breathe
just like a bird flying in the sky
an animal walking on land
a plant growing in soil
or a fish swimming in water
you share a common life purpose
to keep on breathing.
When things go wrong as they often do
Be assured that every day is a new beginning
It brings with it many unique possibilities
So take a deep breath and start again
Life is always worth living.

Everything in life requires that you breathe. When we forget what the purpose of life is, we are unhappy. With breath there is life, without breath there is no life. The first act we do in our life is to breathe in and the last act of our life is to breathe out. Between this first breath in and the last breath out are all the breaths that enable us to experience life. The breath is our life long companion, it’s always with us and yet, we often ignore it and don’t fully understand it. What’s more it holds the key to our health, peace of mind, and well-being. The purpose of life is to breathe and vice versa. To breathe is to have life. When we recall what the purpose of life is, we become happy again.
Pranayama is a Sanskrit word meaning “restraint of the prana or breath”. The word is composed of two Sanskrit words, Prāna, life force, or vital energy, particularly, the breath, and “āyāma”, to suspend or restrain. It is often translated as control of the life force (prana). When used as a technical term in yoga, it is often translated more specifically as breath control.
To inhale and exhale air from the lungs, especially naturally and freely.
To be alive; to exist, live.
So calm your emotions, direct your energies, guide your thoughts and breathe for your precious life.
Bye for now, Vef
