The purpose of life is to live and to grow, that is all. Ecstasy is the feeling of life and the love that is the depths of it. Growth comes from challenges, pain, and healing. My sense of self must be diverse and multifaced for me to be healthy and to survive/thrive in an often hostile world.
Breath is the first step of action. It centers and focuses us. It allows us to flow. Motion is the second step of action. It is the breaking from stasis that make is possible for us to flow. Flowing with our action is the third step. It is flowing that allows us to reach stillness in action. Stillness is the fourth step. In stillness, do we breathe.
