Ilchi Lee - Breathing

Observe your own body. It breathes.

You breathe when you are asleep,
when you are no longer conscious
of your own ideas of self-identity.
Who, then, is breathing?

The collection of information
that you mistakenly think is you
is not the protagonist
in this drama called the breath.
In fact, you are not breathing;
breath is naturally happening to you.

You can purposely end your own life,
but you cannot purposely keep your own life going.
The expression, 'my life' is actually an oxymoron,
a result of ignorance and mistaken assumption.

You don't possess life;
life expresses itself through you.
Your body is a flower that life let bloom,
a phenomenon created by life.
