My lungs have a finite capacity. To inhale more air, I must first exhale.
Breathing is a continuous process of receiving and releasing. It exemplifies the ongoing ebb and flow of life.
Exhaling and inhaling are essential to human life.
As I exhale, carbon dioxide is released, which sustains other life forms. I breathe out what no longer serves me so I can take in the life-giving oxygen I need.
All life is nourished by releasing the old and opening to the new.
Today, I contemplate what I am willing to release and what I am willing to embrace; what I am willing to give and what I am willing to receive.
I open to the ebb and flow of life.
