We could say that your breath is a truth. You don’t have to interpret it and it isn’t based on your thoughts or feelings. Whatever is going on in Your Life, you breathe in and out. Sometimes you breathe quickly, sometimes slowly, but you are always breathing, until your time here is done. At that point, your breath isn’t a present truth; something else will be truth for you.
Holding on to anything, whether it’s an inner revelation or your own breath, is futile. You can’t even hold on to your physical form, for everybody is in the process of aging, regardless of what steps you take to deter the process.
- John-Roger with Paul Kaye
