This episode is about the breath of life that invisibly moves through each of us, connecting our souls to the forests and the birds and the unseen realm of spirit. Here is an excerpt:

 

“Typically, our breath is invisible, yet it is the essence and the evidence that life is present. Human breathing mimics the breath of living forests and also connects us to the divine breath of spirit that secretly sustains all of life. This inspirited breath of life can wither when the forests of the earth are diminished or destroyed; but also when humans fail to awaken and genuinely live the spirit of their own lives.

 

Because of all the troubling issues in the world, it is ever more important that we awaken to the deeper self within us in order that we become inspired to live in meaningful ways. But also so that we become living vessels through which the divine breath of life can enter the world more fully.

 

Breathing has always been connected to spirit and to hidden aspects of life, and it is those mostly unseen elements that make it true that we are all in this together. For, we all breathe together, literally, naturally, globally, locally, all in tandem with the breathing of the trees and the birds and the pulsing of the earth. All of it mostly unseen, yet present like the unique spirit in each of our lives and the dreams secretly trying to bring us all together.

 

There can be expanding circles of awakening, learning and becoming that give us more access to the spirit of life and allow us to contribute more living presence to the world. We are all being asked to hear the music of the spheres, the horns of the angels, the voices in dreams and in the life-long callings that keep calling us to awaken to who we are inside, in order that we might live more fully and contribute presence and meaning and beauty to the world.”

On this episode, Michael Meade tells an ancient story from India in which a tiger cub is born at a tragic time and becomes abandoned at birth, only to be raised by goats. The young tiger comes to act like a goat and believe it is a goat, until a life-shattering, self-revealing event uncovers its true, inner nature.

 

We all live in hard times now when tragic events seem about to shatter everything we believe or think we know about ourselves and the world around us. Meade uses the old teaching tale to show how the hidden continuity of stories can relate the animal realm with human experiences and connect ancient wisdom with current events.

 

When everything seems to be on the edge of destruction we can also be on the verge of great awakenings and life-changing revelations about our own inner nature and ways of contributing to the ongoing pulse of life.
