Observe your own body. It breathes.
You breathe when you are asleep, when you are no longer conscious of your own ideas of self-identity. Who, then, is breathing?… In fact, you are not breathing; breath is naturally happening to you… The expression, ‘my life’ is actually an oxymoron, a result of ignorance and mistaken assumption. You don’t possess life; life expresses itself through you. Your body is a flower that life let bloom, a phenomenon created by life.
