Take A Deep Breath

Focus on your breathe they say, imagine you are breathing in pure love and holding it inside you for a moment then returning it to the Universe of which you are a part and all your own heart as well. When you lungs swell and collapse that movement helps the planet to spin, around the sun revolve, and helps every inequity and problem solve. Love is indeed the answer, you and I are the answer, and we were born to breathe, to live, to love, to meditate, to be the answer the eternal question ask of the great creator, “Is that the best you got?” His/Her Eternal answer back through us is, “Yes, my Love, Yes!.”

That last quote is from the Peter, Paul, and Mary Song, “Cruel War” the entire lyrics of which I post here. Read them:

Cruel War

The cruel war is raging, Johnny has to fight

I want to be with him from morning to night

I want to be with him, it grieves my heart so

Won’t you let me go with you?

No, my love, no

Tomorrow is Sunday, Monday is the day

That your captain will call you and you must obey

Your captain will call you it grieves my heart so

Won’t you let me go with you?

No, my love, no

I’ll tie back my hair, men’s clothing I’ll put on

I’ll pass as your comrade, as we march along

I’ll pass as your comrade, no one will ever know

Won’t you let me go with you?

No, my love, no

Oh Johnny, oh Johnny, I fear you are unkind

I love you far better than all of mankind

I love you far better than words can e’re express

Won’t you let me go with you?

Yes, my love, yes

Uh

Yes, my love, yes

Hate, the root cause of all war, the Bible says, is more cruel than the grave but love is the answer. The breath of life is love. Breathe, Baby, Breathe. Keep breathing here as long as you can and rest assure an eternity of breaths and love await after this ever so short breath is over.

A few Randy Newman words and a few more of my own. “There’s something in your eyes makes me wanna lose myself, makes me wanna lose myself in your arms. Something in your voice makes my heart beat fast, Hope this feeling lasts the rest of my life.” You take my breath always giving it back each time. Take a deep breath.

Your friend and fellow traveler,
