The breath is the bridge between the body and the mind. If you notice you've been thinking too much chances are you may not be breathing...
Did you feed yourself today?
I'm talking about breath! it's our first food, but not our only food, of course...
96.2% of our body mass is gas. Gas is electricity. Breath is electricity. We breathe in and out oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Body mass breakdown of 96.2%:

Only 3.9% of our body mass is comprised by the food we eat (minerals, vitamins, fiber).
Most of our food is made up of gas too...proteins (amino acids) are composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen. Essential Fatty Acids are composed of oxygen, carbon, hydrogen. Sugar(glucose) is composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.
It’s easy to get caught up in our life dramas and think “all about me.” This reality creates an illusion that seems as though you are the main actress or actor. Yes, that is true, but it’s great to remember that we are part of a collective movie with the whole world. So, if you think it’s all about you, chances are there is someone else that thinks the same thing; it’s all about her or him.
But what if we switched our perception from me, to we?
What if we thought about how our choices and actions go beyond affecting our world, but in the world of others?
As the New Year rolls around, I bet there has been plenty of us, including myself, that have been reviewing lifestyle tendencies and food choices. There’s always room for improvement. Instead of being hard on ourselves for mistakes we’ve made…
Let’s remember: We are humans, “flawed and fabulous”
And of course, keep it simple...
“What is one thing I can do that will create more harmony in my life?”
