Breathing Images


The images that we are observing are not reality. Nature is non-threatening. Our response and then to interpret threats fuels the creation of elements that are out to get us. But naturally this is not the case. Our emphasis on certain characteristics exaggerates them. We have been acting as and thought magnifiers. Our ability to replicate symbols that we have created and tied meaning to have created time which is the means by which to perpetuate and share certain image based structures/ideas. The printing press served as a way to concretize certain ways of seeing the world which then became a way to expand to collective experience.

When we start in this world our senses our developed with harmony. Emphasis on sight does not seem to. Also, threats do not appear to exist. We only respond to inner, or body needs such as hunger and touch.

Meanings attached to things and events and our repeated exposure to them creates the belief systems that we find ourselves living within. "Think outside the box." means that we accept the idea that most of us are thinking in a box. What other limiting beliefs frame the way we see the world? Why is death bad, to be feared or avoided? Why don't we see it as a celebration? Why don't we see one animal eating another as one getting lunch and the other as being freed to go onto other grand adventures? Desmond calls is frequency hopping.

Breath consciousness and their accompanying "skill-sets" and practices act to re-balance us into a fuller life experience. Bringing energy that might be used to support ideas, images, beliefs that create stress and discomfort. The images that we focus our attention on require our energy - our attention. By spending quality time with ourselves, going into where our thoughts our created and to bring our awareness back to the natural harmonic aspects that we are, allows us to take charge of ourselves. These practices re-develop our born ability to feed those things which we would prefer to experience, not just respond as revealed by Pavlov's research with dogs.

Breathing deeply and consciously.
Appreciating our breath.
Contemplating and noticing our thoughts.
Noticing the sense pleasures of our physical body.
Tapping, or body drumming, with the intent to re-center ourselves into the fullness of our life's "Breath" reality which is truly supporting all of our life experience.
Breath connecting with nature. Nature in not confused about how it relates to its breath.
The animals and plants have not become obsessed or controlled, or threatened by images.
WE can connect to their knowing in a feeling way that will help us remember the truth of our being - our breath and that is is supporting us and will continue.

Breath dancing, playing, singing, replicating the pulsating, spiraling nature of life. To help remind us of what we are made of - and what is always supporting us.
Our emphasis on the breath is necessary because there are so many outside signals that are supposedly there to bring us back to "reality". That reality is out of balance. So we need emphasis and create a habit of reminding ourselves so we can stay in a harmonious and solid place of truth, of love.
One Breath At A Time.
