breathing

A Quote by Peter Clothier on death, dying, life, breathing, and grief

So what could I do? One thing that I have learned is that I can breathe. It sounds simple, even simple-minded, but I tend to forget too easily that at every moment I'm reaffirming life with this most basic act.

A Quote by Thomas Berry on earth, environment, humanity, spirituality, sacredness, divinity, presence, breathing, and breath

The Earth with its layers of land and water and air provides the space within which all living things are nurtured and the context within which humans attain their identity. If in the excitement of a secular technology reverence for the Earth has diminished in the past, especially in the western world, humans now experience a sudden shock at the devastation they have wrought on their own habitation. The ancient human-Earth relationship must be recovered in a new context, in its mystical as well as in its physical functioning. There is need for awareness that the mountains and rivers and all living things, the sky and its sun and moon and clouds all constitute a healing, sustaining sacred presence for humans which they need as much for their psychic integrity as for their physical nourishment. This presence whether experienced as Allah, as Atman, as Sunyata, or as the Buddha-nature or as Bodhisattva; whether as Tao or as the One or as the Divine Feminine, is the atmosphere in which humans breathe deepest and without which they eventually suffocate.

A Quote by Michael Servetus on breathing, breath, spirit, energy, inhalation, and life

In the inhalation and exhalation there is an energy and a lively divine spirit, since He, through his spirit supports the breath of life, giving courage to the people who are in the earth and spirit to those who walk on it.
