Inhale and Exhale


I saw this quote in a book of inspiration.  I had been reading a book about meditation and how everything relates to the breath.  Then, I happened upon this quote and I was struck again about the way our breath permeates everything.  The very act of breathing occurs in our present moment.  As we inhale, we are breathing into, and inhaling, the future. As we exhale, or breathe out, we let go of our past.  I realized that our breath connects us to life in the most fundamental way of not only being alive, but really living in the present moment.  The ability to breathe out the past is available to us in every breath we take.  The ability to move forward and begin again is always just a breath away.

What do you need to exhale from your past in order to inhale new possibilities in your future?
