We get so caught up in living that we lose sight of life. By knowing the breath we get to know life. But seek life not in the breath. Neither can it be found in the inhalation nor the exhalation. Our living experiences are found in the inhalation and exhalation, expressed as exhilaration and tediousness. They are only living memories that point towards life.
Life is between every breath. It is the ‘in-between’ where there is neither elation nor despair. Some call it peace; others bliss and even so far as god or consciousness. Yet when we begin to consider life, we habitually look back reminiscing on what could have been or was, similar to allowing a stirring sunset overshadow a glorious sunrise. Have you noticed this phenomenon?
