Breath & Truth

We Go Without Breath for Only So Long

“Stumbling into enlightenment – heard that phrase before. Must look it up and read it once again. Truth is never once and done; repeatedly it calls. We’re ever drawn to the light, like I am to Zen.

We go without breath for only so long, so too with water or food. Our physical existence is dependent upon matter, both beautiful and crude.

Likewise, our spiritual life depends upon a love that flows free from one to another to others still. Truth lives in community.”
