Soul Musings/Day 8: The Final Pause


“The last breath we just took has been preceded by a series of inspirations, pauses, and expirations. At some point we release our final breath and transition on to what awaits us.

When you look back at your life in that very final out breath are you filled with wonder at what you have created? Have you allowed yourself to be all that you were meant to Be during this lifetime…. and remembered that with every inhale and with every exhale life and death is recreated over and over.

We actually never know when the next exhale will be our last. We can live in fear of this and a myriad of other things – or we can follow the wisdom and direction that resides within every breath we take, enjoying and learning from the moments of this incredible life we have been given.

What a wise sage is our breath. Always present and willing to guide – if we will only pause long enough to listen. “

Inspiring New Possibilities, Living From the Soul of Life While Co-creating Well Being of Body, Being, Heart and Planet….One Breath At A Time

Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day.  Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.

Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship.  Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.
