“Simply desire to be aware and awareness is. It comes and goes with the breath. If you want to be aware, breathe! Breathe in to embrace this moment. Breathe out to release it. Breathe, breathe, breathe. Each breath is an act of awareness.
Now if I came to your doorstep and told you I was selling breaths for $5 million a piece, you would think that was pretty funny. You would tell me, “that’s very nice, brother, but I already have all the breaths I need. Of course you do. But you keep forgetting that you have them. You buying the insurance policy, falling in love with prince or princess charming, chasing doctor I can make you feel good, or swami I’ve got it all come and get it for five bucks. You know, they all have such long names, it’s a wonder you can pronounce them!
Take a breath, my friend! That’s right, a deep breath. Nobody has what you need. Did you hear me? Nobody!”
Paul Ferrini, in “The Silence of the Heart”
