An excerpt:

The breath is the foundation of all life. Your breath became yours the moment you were born and will remain with you until you take your last.

Human beings breathe in oxygen in order to live and give off carbon dioxide in order for plants to live. In this symbiosis, plants, humans and animals co-exist in a “give and take” process known as "mutualism". Another term for breathing is “inspiration”. The word "inspiration", from the Latin word inspirare, means "to breathe into". Today we know the act of being inspired can occur at any moment and be applied to any aspect of life, be it a creative or work endeavor. If you afford your mind the space it needs to become filled with inspiration, much as you do when you breathe and allow your lungs to be filled with air, true inspiration can occur. This space is the silence you afford your mind through the process of ceasing the perpetual thoughts or thinking, which is our natural condition. Though thinking is necessary to function, doing so all the time prevents us from connecting with the higher planes of thought available to us. The ones we are able to connect with in order to bring true "inspiration" into our lives. Author Martha Beck, says, "These days, I love silence.... For the first few minutes, my brain clatters and clangs like a stovetop of agitated, boiling pots and pans. But then I begin to hear the great silence around me, the stillness that underlines all sound. It seems to awaken a version of the same silence that lives within me. The two pools of quiet reach out for each other like magnets, like water droplets on a windshield. When they meet, the cacophony of my mind slows, calms, and on a good day, for a moment, stops." Continue to breathe in deep and breathe out long, always focusing on the breath coming in and out of the body…
