15. God is Literally Breathing Us

The Beloved and Divine Creator is breathing through Noble, and each human in this life, slowly and miraculously. With each breath (shakti) filling the inner being, divine love and healing is permeating the body. The simple action of being aware of the breath, changes everything. An old psychiatrist friend of mine, Shepard Ginandes, used to tell me, “as you control your breath, you control your life.” Shep had a piece of the truth. In reality, we are not controlling the breath. God is literally breathing us. Just as all the vital organs are constantly functioning as a result of God’s love and animating force, so is the breath being controlled by Divine intelligence. We can regulate the speed of the breathing, but the Beloved is doing the breathing.
By quieting the chatter of the mind and focusing, we can enjoy healing of the body, mind, emotions, and spirit, by simply focusing all our energy on the breath. We are then breathing in, ‘spirititual ‘shakti, or God’s divine love. The exhale carries various pollutants from our entire system and being, out into the vast still space that is still God. This form of meditation causes an unspeakable peace  and a blissful state of being. May you always be aware that each breath you breathe is a gift of the eternal Beloved. One day the breath in these bodies will stop. Fear not, for the conscious awareness that you are does not need breath. The human body cannot live without it. When we drop the dis-integrating body, only God knows the next step for our divine souls. “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what the Beloved has in store for those who love, and are called according to the Beloved’s purpose.”
