Respiration is the process of breathing air into the lungs, and exhaling air out of the lungs. One respiration equals an inhalation and an exhalation. Breathing enables the exchange of gases between the body and the environment. A person inhales to acquire oxygen, which is essential to life. Exhalations wash the body of carbon dioxide, a waste product. The normal rate of respirations are 12-20 per minute, for an adult, anything lower or higher can be detrimental to our living. From here, we ask the question, what are your spiritual respirations?
The divinity of the soul is the respirator enabling us to inhale the fruit of life, and exhale detrimental waste within us. In every spiritual inhalation, we breathe life, goodness, and fruitfulness to oxygenate our inmost being. Exhalations expel the inner crud that destroys living, corrodes goodness, and desolates fruitage. If our connection to the respirator of the soul is weak, our intake of divine qualities will be too slow and inefficient. With little result, we feebly exhale the unfruitful pollution that exists in us. Similarly, when our link to the source of divine respirations is loose, our breathing might be too rapid. We will frantically make an effort to breathe in the qualities of the deity, which we need to exist from day to day. Simultaneously, there is anxiety as we hysterically attempt to dispel the pollution of the soul.
The spiritual fruit are what we inhale through the divine respirator of the soul. A heavenly respiration smoothly and quietly breathes fruitage to oxygenate the inner being with peace, meekness, and gentleness. The breath of life oxygenates our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors with love, goodwill, kindness, goodness, faith, patience, self-control, and goodness. An exhalation from the inward divinity expels the attitudes that make waste of the spirit’s fruit. That deity dispels the “carbon dioxide” of conflict, harshness, hatred, cruelty, and hopelessness that might exist in us. If our breathing is too slow, there is a minimal influx of soft, moist, tenderness coming into us, and we are too weak to dissipate the inward pollution. When our breathing is too fast, we try with extreme effort to acquire the good fruit into us, but to no avail. There is anxiety in the laborious attempt to cleanse our attitudes that desolate the spirit’s fruitage.
(A breathing exercise is to inhale fruitfulness and exhale unfruitfulness. Breathe in joy and peace, and exhale sadness and conflict.)
Our spiritual respirations include an inhalation and an exhalation when breathing life into the needs of the body. An optimal respiration is smooth and quiet when fulfilling physiological requirements. With each input of food, drink, rest, oxygen, and need for sanitation, the inhalation of divine fruitage exist in the process. There is joy, peace, self-control, and goodness as we nourish ourselves. In addition, each exhalation rids the body of attitudes that make wastes of the body’s welfare.
A spiritual respiration too slow does harm to our physiology. There is too little intake of fruitfulness when eating, breathing, washing, or acquiring rest. That is when substances flow into the body, but the inhalation of goodness for the welfare of our health is inefficient. Simultaneously, waste products from the influx of gunk linger within because exhalations are too weak to expel the goo. Attitudes of unkindness, conflict, hopelessness, and wanting to expire lingers.
A spiritual respiration too fast is harmful to physiological components. That is when a frantic exertion of effort results to inhale fruitfulness when fulfilling the needs of the body. They try ardently to breathe life into their health, but their inner being has become hardened, or resistant, to absorb moist and soft fruitage. Their resistance to goodwill, gentleness, and self-control destroys the welfare of their inner being. Corresponding to the inability to inhale compassion for their own welfare, they agonize to exhale the body of detrimental waste products. They retain attitudes of hatefulness, pessimism, sadness, and despair.
Our spiritual respirations include an inhalation and an exhalation when breathing life into being safe and secure. An optimal respiration is smooth and quiet when inhaling the fruit of peace, meekness, and gentleness. That fruitfulness oxygenates our inner being to guide into a place of protection, shelter, and stability. The spiritual exhalations expel the waste products of hatred, cruelty, and ill intentions that incite harmful and violent behaviors.
A spiritual respiration too slow deteriorates a safe and secure atmosphere. We faintly and weakly inhale the divine fruitage, making us uncaring in risky situations and annulling our safety. Simultaneously, we feebly attempt to exhale the litter of unkindness, pessimism, and hatefulness to suggest peaceful intentions.
A spiritual respiration that is too fast is a signal that we jeopardize our safety and security. We have put ourselves in harms way by deteriorating the protection of stable shelter. In that situation, hysterical efforts attempt to inhale goodwill, peace, and joy, but to no avail. The situation has become unsafe and volatile, threatening to do bodily destruction. At the same time, frantic and laborious efforts are put forth to exhale the inner attitudes that incite further hostilities.
Our spiritual respirations include an inhalation and an exhalation when breathing life into socialization. An optimal respiration is smooth and quiet when inhaling an influx of kindness, goodwill, and love within our acceptance, belonging, and sensual intimacy. Through our exhalations, we expel the waste of intolerance, hatred, cruelty, and ill will.
Our spiritual respirations may be too slow and weak to inhale an adequate amount of fruitage within our social interactions. We are not taking in enough gentleness, joy, kindness, and patience to embrace others with a nourishing welcome. Simultaneously, exhalations are too shallow in the effort to wash our inner being of pessimism, harshness, unkindness, and impatience when socializing.
Our spiritual respirations may be too fast to allow an inviting welcome to others. The inhalations are vigorous, strenuous, and frantic when attempting to breathe life into our need to be congenial. At the same moment, arduous exhalations labor vigorously to expel the social waste of intolerance, bigotry, argumentativeness that lodges within.
Our spiritual respirations include an inhalation and an exhalation when breathing life into our sense of worth. An optimal respiration is smooth and quiet when inhaling divine qualities into our esteem. We feel loved inwardly, optimism about whom we are, peace in our humility, and are consistent in doing well. Simultaneously, exhalations cleanse the soul of the effects of ridicule, rejection, and degradation.
Slow spiritual respirations are too weak and frail to breathe life into our sense of worth. That is when we feel inadequate, unrecognized, and not worthy to experience joy, faith, and goodness within our esteem. Concurrently, exhalations are too feeble to banish the tarnish from the inner being. There infections are that of depression, hate, and the longing to quit.
Rapid spiritual respirations exert a tremendous effort to breathe life into their self-worth, or dignity. They try hysterically to bring an influx of fruitfulness into their esteem. They crave the honor of being cherishable and praiseworthy by those they feel are essential to their good standing. However, the laborious and hard exhalations do not allow the waste of their dilapidation to wash from their soul.
Our spiritual respirations include an inhalation and exhalation when breathing life into self-expression. An optimal respiration is smooth and quiet when inhaling spiritual fruit into the attitude of our words and actions. We inhale compassion, serenity, optimism, and consistency to oxygenate one another with edifying communication. In our exhalations, the cleansing of the soul washes away the “carbon dioxide” of unfruitfulness in what we say and do.
A slow and shallow spiritual respiration is inadequate to breathe fruitage into the manner by which we express our words and deeds. The feebleness of the inhalations does not allow the influx of joy, meekness, kindness, or self-control into self-expression. Simultaneously, the fragility of the exhalations can barely wash the litter of harshness, pessimism, cruelty, and anxiety from their communication.
A rapid spiritual respiration exerts extreme effort to breathe life into the style by which they express themselves. They try with laborious and frantic inhalations to acquire the attitude of love, peace, faith, and self-control in what they say and do. At the same time, as arduous as their exhalations are, they cannot push out arrogance, evilness, impatience, and ill intent. That waste lodges within the communication of their soul.
The cycle begins with those who believe the divinity of our inner being is the respirator of the soul. With each inhalation, there is the influx of peace and joy, and every exhalation expels the waste of anger and sadness. They are able to bargain away the unfruitful litter that exists in them, in exchange for the breath of spiritual life. Their attitude is to accept the divine respirator of the soul as the source of a fruitful life, by the good that flows in and the expulsion of what agonizes.
The believers grow within reservoirs where people inhale the spiritual fruit, and exhale the “carbon dioxide” of unfruitfulness. The attitudes that exit those reservoirs are to experience a respiration before speaking a word or doing a deed. Before communicating, they inhale the fruitage of love, peace, faith, and self-control, while exhaling hatefulness, conflict, hopelessness, and impulsiveness. Those attitudes transfer directly through people who experience the breath of life and feel the oxygenation of goodness and fruitfulness. Indirectly, they transfer through people who have seen the cleansing of inner unfruitfulness by infilling with the spirit of life, goodness, and spiritual blossoms.
We welcome the entering of the divine respirator into us through our sense of self-worth. We want to inhale goodness in our esteem, and exhale negativism from our ego. That makes us feel worthy to belong in a place where harmonious inhalations welcome others with loving acceptance and tolerance. Similarly, the social exhalations rid the fellowship of hate, intolerance, and unkindness.
The people likely to host the respirations of the deity are those seeing the consequences of inhaling unfruitfulness, and exhaling the spiritual fruit. They welcome the breath of life feeding our inner being with comfort, and removing the waste of inward agitation. The cycle beginning with believers of the divine respirator continues through the moist softness of our soul.
We can assess that the divine goodness within us is the respirator of the soul. The diagnosis is there are inhalations of spiritual fruit, and exhalations of unfruitfulness. We plan to inhale by the breath of life, and exhale waste of inner detriment. The implementation of the plan is to let softness, moistness, and tenderness flow into us, and expel hard, dry, and harsh attitudes. The evaluation comes by examining the blossoms of spirit’s fruit in us, and seeing wasteful attitudes dissipate. When love, peace, faith, and perseverance oxygenate our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, we are breathing through spiritual respirations.
