I just happened to be Mindfulness of Breath Meditation tonight and while doing so I had a bizarre realization. I hope I can put this into words to do it justice as it was kind of a mind blowing realization for me. It came to mind how I cling to people but what really just makes a person in that very moment is that they breathe. Thus the cessation of breath would no longer making them a person by my views. Also every living thing on this planet breathes and has a interconnected relationship. Meh I don't feel like I am doing it justice to be honest but it was fascinating as it was never an experience I have had before and felt the need to share. I guess if I had to sum it up in a rather simple phrase, "All of humanity breathes."

It was definitely fascinating. It was interesting because I really didn't feel like meditating but I was like I might as well then that happened. Honestly I wish I could describe it better but it was rather mindblowing for me. I even verbally said wow. Honestly I was kind of skeptical of such experiences then it happened to me. At least now it confirms I am truly on the right path.
