Every breath I take has the potential for higher consciousness. I can use it as a practice, just like I use meditation, only a lot more often. There is a finer substance in the air that we all share and I can draw from that pool of finer substance if I am here, present, and remembering.
In the beginning of my practice with breath, I would forget all the time. It was only in a time of frustration or crisis that would bring on the need to “calm down”. As my pool of consciousness grew, so too did a new practice of Self Remembrance.
I remember that there is nothing to change and everything to accept.
In these small seconds I fill my bucket of consciousness. With that consciousness, I have learned to see more and more of who I am, and what is behind all of my suffering.
When I first started realizing what was really up with me, I became lost and full of despair. I realized my life was built on false pretenses and negative beliefs. It was almost as if my Ego got a whiff of being caught and poured on the heat.
This is the point where I fell into wanting to improve myself.
My own journey became obsessed with fixing and improving. I was looking for a way out of my madness. I only had to look at my life to see nothing was in sync with truth and sincerity. I wanted to be free of my self sabotage.
I did not realize there was really nothing to fix.
My video this week simply explains how every breath you take can be as a most powerful tool. It is that simple. It is that pure, and it’s easy to forget. Everything about us is us. With each breath, we can learn to accept that.
Have a great week,
