Breathe as if Your Life Depended on It.
Breathe as if your life depended on it. Think about this for a moment. We all know that our life depends on breathing, yet there is so much more to breathing then just allowing it to happen.
In the same manner, there is so much more to life than just allowing it to pass by unconsciously. Our lives can be meaningful and bring benefit to the rest of humanity if we have the energy to allow our unique greatness to come out.
Genius comes from inspiration, and inspiration (yin) is half the equation for breathing – the other half being expiration (yang). So take charge of your breath and you’ll be taking charge of your life. Breathe deeply. Get rid of the old to make room for the new. Proper breathing will create space in your body and mind for the Universal energy to express itself through you.
Simple Qigong Exercise
Sit or stand in a relaxed posture. Focus on your lower dantien (lower belly). As you inhale into your belly, say to your self “Calm”. As you exhale, say to your self “Relax”. Do this as long as you like. Then take a moment to feel how you feel.
