This is a quote I’ve seen referenced on the internet more than a few times. It is from Dr. Wayne Dyer, author of The Third-Person View and the movie The Accidental Billionaires. Dr. Dyer said: “When we are alive, we breathe. When we are not alive, we breathe.
This is an interesting statement. The implication is that by not being alive, you are not breathing. But this is in direct contrast to what Dr. Dyer said, which is that you breathe when you are alive and you breathe when you are not. So you might think that you are breathing when you are not, but you aren’t. You are just pretending.
You are just pretending? This is a problem, as the words “when you are not alive” could be used to mean that you are not breathing. I’m trying to think of a time when I’ve pretended to be breathing, but couldn’t. If you want to think of a time when you pretended to be breathing, then think about all the times you’ve been around the same people and felt the same way that I felt as though you were pretending not to breathe.
The problem with such a statement is it implies you are not breathing when you are not breathing. If you are not breathing, you are not breathing. I think all the time we are pretending to be breathing is probably the same exact thing.
At the game, it’s often easier to be too careful and not breathe. If you are not breathing, then you are in fact breathing. If you are not breathing, you are breathing. If you are not breathing, then you are not breathing. So we are all breathing.
Breathing is actually a very important life skill, but most of us don’t know this, which is why we’re taught to be so careful. So let’s not get too caught up in breathless scenarios. This is a case where breathing comes into play, but not in the way you might think. The problem is that there is a “passive” type of breathing that we can do without thinking about it.
Breathing can be done passively. It is very easy to do on our own without the need for our attention. When we stop and breathe, we take in oxygen, which means that we are breathing. When we stop and breath our heart rate increases, which means that we are breathing. When we stop and breathe our blood pressure rises, which means that we are breathing. It is similar to when you stop and breathe during meditation, but with different effects.
Breathing is a very passive thing. The only thing that takes our attention is the inhale, but that’s because no conscious thought is involved. When we breathe in, we automatically open ourselves up to all sorts of new ideas and experiences. That can be terrifying. But it also can be exhilarating. We are just the breathing we are, without us having to think about it. When we breathe out we take in nothing but air, which is the same as nothingness.
Breathing is a very powerful and fascinating experience. There is something of the mind in a state of inhale and exhale. The mind is always changing, as we breathe in and out, and our minds are always aware of that change. Yet we can only really feel that change, as when we breathe in to exhale we are only as much of ourselves as the air we are breathing. Which is a very deep and profound experience, but one the mind is very aware of.
