Just Breathe

When I’m feeling happy, I’m breathing.

When I’m feeling sad, I’m breathing.

When I’m feeling angry, I’m breathing.

When I’m rich, I’m breathing.

When I’m poor, I’m breathing.

When I’m succeeding, I’m breathing.

When I’m failing, I’m breathing.

When people like me, I’m breathing.

When people don’t like me, I’m breathing.

Whatever is happening, I’m breathing. I’m alive. Life is happening. And it is all given freely, unconditionally, always.

My mind says, “Yeah, but what about if you can’t breathe?”

Yeah, maybe at some point. But right now, I’m breathing. So right now life is happening freely. Right now despite any protestations of mind, reality is I am alive. Right now there is an infinite field of potential that is open. Right now there is no problem that can overshadow the fact that all this is happening (instead of not happening).

Why overlook it any longer? Why deny this?

All the overlooking and denial doesn’t change the fact that this is happening. I am alive. I am breathing. I am.

This is always here. Whether I overlook it or deny it or not.

Always.
