Breath of Life

“When you inhale, you are taking the strength from God. When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world.”

Ancient people knew the relationship of breath and spirit. In New Testament Greek, the same word is translated either breath or spirit depending upon context.

Inhaling deeply fills you with life.

But the exhale is the important part.

Try it. Breathe in deeply. Exhale slowly and completely.

Feel your body relax. A sense of well being ensues.

When the kids or coworkers or boss or politics or your favorite sports team exasperate you, try the breath.

Spend 10 minutes every morning breathing with intention.

This very act changes the structure of the neurons in your brain–for the better.

This act is the basis of meditation where we seek the presence of God.

Breathe…and invite the spirit in.
