“Your true support system is in each breath that you take. It is your inspiration: the movement of air that spirals in and out of your mouth and lungs each second of every day. It is the breathing-in of your Divine Self; your connection with Divine Mind.
And it doesn’t stop with you. The breath you draw at this moment is the same breath I am drawing. Wherever you are – whether you are in America or Fiji, Venezuela or Japan – you are breathing the very same breath.
Think about it for just a moment. There is nothing between the air surrounding you and the air surrounding me. It carries on in one seamless, invisible network of nitrogen, oxygen and other gasses. It covers the whole Earth, permeating everything: even the waters of the ocean (there’s just a little more hydrogen down there) and the miles of frozen tundra.
It binds us together as surely as the moon draws the tides across the planet: moving to an unseen tune: guided by the Divine Design.
We are all inspired by the same force of life.
And it doesn’t stop with us humans, either!
The breath that is filling your lungs at this second is the very same breath that swirls around the lungs of the jaguar in the deepest corner of the rainforest and expands the bronchial tubes of the albatross as it wings its silent way far out to sea. It inspires the tiniest pigmy shrew, which must eat every two hours if it is to survive. It gives life to the seventy-foot whale, which must eat more than a million shrews could eat in their whole lives with one gulp of its gargantuan mouth!
It gives colour to every plant and substance to every crustacean. It touches us all in this instant. We are all connected: always. We just have to wake up to who we are. And to do that, you must take the leap of faith that you took with that very first breath. You must follow your own inspirations. “
Richard Cawte, Ph.D. Excerpt from a new book being released soon! Divine Path – Stay tuned !!! www.richardcawte.com
I start this post with Richard’s quote above for many reasons. This past couple of weeks for me has been driven by “inspiration” and fueled by “intuition”. Reaching Richard’s website by what I call “divine providence” as I explored one day, I was so taken by the work he is doing in the world that I wrote him an e-mail of gratitude. Out of that e-mail has come a meaningful and delicious connection that has inspired me tremendously already, and has me more often utilizing my intuition and creative inspiration at every opportunity that I can.
As I read the passages that contained the excerpt above, tears streamed down my face. To wake up to the immense interconnectedness of all living things is almost more than one can hold. I do know that your breath – which is your inspiration and your creative expression in the world – is shared by all, including the earth and all of nature – expanding out into the immense universe. We create it all by our thoughts and the actions stemming from those thoughts.
I invite you to take in the deepest, most expansive breath that is possible for you in this moment and remember….. as you exhale and come to that still pause at the end …. right before the next inspiration – who and what you are sharing this breath with. We in-spire each other….
