God breathed the breath of life into Adam, the Psalms tell us that all animals live by the breath of God, and Jesus breaths on his disciples to give them the Holy Breath. Breath is holy. Sit for five minutes and breathe consciously. As you go throughout the day pay attention to the breaths of others and your own.
