breaths weren't meant to be held
like beliefs and everything else
they were fleeting
one by one
she let them flow
Take a deep breath in and let go with a slow exhale. Begin tuning into the gravity that’s holding you in place. Take your time…
Watch how the Earth hugs you while it rotates on its axis. Tune into this power. Take it in. This magnificent globe…spinning, creating, sustaining, and recreating.
Take a deep breath in and relax. Begin giving into this powerful force. Allow it to hold you. Allow it to speak to you. Allow it to guide you.
As you give in, remember that “giving in” to this power is not “giving up” your power. Instead, you are stepping into the power.
Instead of fighting it, doubting it, running from it, or chasing it, you are simply stepping into it. You are stepping into a power that YOU ARE A PART OF.
Step into that power. Trust it. Enlighten it!
Once, I read about a man in a concentration camp, who simply refused to agree that he was a slave. He not only accepted extreme torture in return for his refusal everyday, but also taught his son to do the same.
I also studied saints who turned warriors when challenged by abusive rulers. These humans didn’t fight for life, power, or vengeance. They accepted being skinned, burned, and nailed alive. They chose death and torture instead of giving up the one main thing— the freedom to think. Mental slavery was non-negotiable to them.
The entire globe is sprinkled with similar stories of oppression. They are still evident in families, corporations, religions, and politics. Life continues to raise oppressors to show us what we keep missing. More than the physical body, oppressors felt threatened by another human’s mind. It wasn’t so much our “ability” to think (memorizing), but our “freedom” to think (learn) that scared them.
Many saintly beings gave up their lives for this liberty, implying that our lives were worthless without it. Naturally, one with a free mind would wonder what they saw in it. They saw our only portal to the future. Only a mind free to reflect upon itself, could raise its understanding to the next level. In other words, it would evolve us as a species. They were right. Without the possibility of evolving, we were as good as dead.
Today, most of us have the ability and the freedom to think, but rarely do we take the “liberty” to think. Our own mind keeps us too busy to pay attention to us. Perhaps, it is afraid of going against authority, or what lies beyond it.
