Why is it that when I ask you to breathe you do not? What is it that you are afraid of in your own breath? I will tell you.
It is because you are afraid to be fully alive. If you listen to your breath, pay attention to your breath, than you will have to give yourself permission to feel. If you feel you will REMEMBER. What will you remember? You will remember everything. You will become aware of the quantum nature of your experience of life.
What if when you pay attention to your breath you remember that there have been times you call death when you were not breathing. You will have to remember that you are eternal. That your Presence sometimes is breathing and sometimes it is not. You call that life and death. I call that Presence.
When you pay attention to your breath you become your I AM PRESENCE.
