I have been looking at how I am breathing and general focus on breathing. This is because I realize without breathing properly, effectively, it will be a struggle for me to walk this process, I mean, breathing is a basic tool/step in this process. Breathing effectively implies breathing with awareness, in a way assisting and supporting myself to cut down the movie that is running wild.

So today I was relatively successful in putting the brakes on the movie, meaning I was able to breathe fully, with awareness some of the times. For sure this hasn’t become a second nature yet.

Why is it so difficult to breathe each breath with awareness? I mean what’s so hard/difficult about it? In my case, it’s my addiction to think, to participate in the fascinating the stuff the mind is coming up with, I just don’t want to miss any actions, I don’t want to miss any ‘living’, all that cool stuff going on in the mind, my goodness who wants to miss that. So that is the basic fear, that if I leave the mind that I might miss ‘living’, miss the actions, and turn myself into a mindless zombie.

That’s the fear which has been programmed into my mind, to my beingness from the controllers which I readily accepted and allowed. I mean, I honestly believe that if I were not think, that I would miss out on ‘living’. So here living is equated to thinking. I still think, think and think, I mean, I have not stopped entirely yet, still going to the movie so to speak. Well, who wants to miss the show, who wants to NOT live, thinking is living after all.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that thinking is LIVING.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that if I don’t think then I am not living apparently, because thinking is living.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that if I focus on breathing then I am apparently missing out on living, I am missing the actions.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that if I breathe with awareness then I am apparently missing out on living, because thinking is living.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to equate thinking to living and in that programm my body and mind and my beingness into believing that thinking is LIVING.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear not thinking because apparently if I don’t’ think then I am not living, because thinking is living.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to accept the mind control that says “THINKING IS LIVING”.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to condition myself, my body, my mind, my beingness into believing that “THINKING IS LIVING”

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to experience fear upon focusing on my breathing because I have allowed the idea that thinking is living and therefore I become fearful when not living i.e. not thinking.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear breathing with awareness.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear breathing every breath with awareness.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe living is in the head, in that completely disregard the body, not pay any attention at all to the body.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize I am pro-programmed, conditioned to believe that ‘thinking is living’ and therefore I am conditioned to experience fear when I focus on my breath as I breathe. Effectively I have been programmed to NOT breathe with awareness so to keep the mind going and going.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, there is no escape from this, sooner or later, I will have to pay attention, to myself, to my body, to my breath.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, LIFE IS A GIFT, and breathing with awareness is a way to honor that gift here, and not breathing with awareness is wasting of life.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize I have a chance here, I am still alive, I am still breathing, so wasting away the gift of my life is utter irresponsibility, therefore I direct myself to see/realize that I am here as a gift, I am breathing as a gift, and I still have time, to correct myself and be HERE.

Death will be too late to breathe. So I direct myself to stop the pattern of ‘thinking is living’ by directing me to breathe with awareness. I see/realize that this must become my second nature; I must breathe every breath with awareness, not missing out even a single breath.

When and as I see that I am not breathing with awareness, I stop, I see/realize that it’s time to change the pattern from shallow breathing to whole body breathing, into breathing with awareness.

I am here. I am breathing.

Day 130 – ‘Belly Breathing’ is a nice training tool to Breathe with the Physical.

I see/realize/ and understand, breathing each breath must be done effectively, otherwise the mind and its elements will take over, things like thoughts/emotions/feelings, can easily creep in. I have been living a very limited life just inside the head, while totally disregarding the body. So I am investigating a new tool, Belly Breathing to assist me as a training tool till it become normal to fully breathe upto the stomach.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, that breathing each breathe effectively is a decision I must make and live it. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, that I must decide to Breathe each breath effectively. Allowing even one to miss will let the mind arise up with its elements. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, I must breathe each breath to the max, to the fullest.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, utilizing a technique like belly breathing is effective, in which I allow myself to breathe each breath upto the stomach. in this I forgive me for not realizing, as I belly breathe, I am with the breath and the body, my awareness is in the body, and breath. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, that belly breathing is a decision I must make and live it as each breath. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself not realize, belly breathing is not an act of breathing as in performance, rather, it is to BE with the body-awareness and breath-awareness simultaneously.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, BEEN with the breath, is different from other forms of ‘spiritual breathing’ methods where the goal is to attain a higher self thru breath.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, belly breathing is a tool simply to support me till it becomes natural for me to breathe upto the stomach, while been aware of the body/breath at the same time.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, so-called Pranayamas have one goal is common, that is to attain a higher spiritual self, as done by Yogic masters of the east.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, any breathing technique is just that a technique to assist and support me to Be here as physical simply utilizing the breath as a support point. However it is not to ‘use’ the breath to attain a great higher spiritual self, as in higher attainment promoted by the spiritual industry.  

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, belly breathing has a physical conformation point, the expansion of the stomach, which I can have a physical sensation/awareness of. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, belly breathing is not an exercise, nor a regulated spiritual activity, it is simply a normal simple application of breathing till the breath expand the stomach. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear that belly breathing is a borderline quasi spiritual activity, and therefore reject its effectiveness to support me in training to breathe with the physical. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, it is not the tool that determines who I am, therefore I see/realize/understand whatever tool that assist me in breathing with the physical is cool, as who I am is not defined by belly breathing tool/technique. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear been seen as a ‘spiritual practitioner’ for utilizing the belly breathing tool, not realizing it is simply a tool to train me to breathe with the physical awareness. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize, simply been aware of the expansion and contraction of stomach is what belly breathing is ALL about. in this I forgive me for not realizing that been aware of the body/breath is a great assistance to BE here within each breath.

I am here. I breathe. I am with my body/physical here. I am here as my physical, as breath.

When and as I see myself ‘lost and unaware’, I simply return to belly breathing to assist and support myself to BE HERE as physical. I see/realize/understand, I can greatly support myself to remain here as breath/physical by applying belly breathing as a training tool.
