Asking what inspires you is like asking what makes you breathe. Why? Because the word inspiration comes from Latin inspiratus (the past participle of inspirare, ”to breathe into, inspire”) and in English has had the meaning ”the drawing of air into lungs” since the middle of the 16th century.
I could think of many things but essentially it is life itself. The gift of having a body that I can control. The present moment that I can live through right now while writing another post for my blog. Doing so has the potential of improving my life. It’s the vision I have and the one I am working on.
Everything we do moves us forward. Everywhere we look, our surroundings, they inspire us. Or maybe it’s the other way? Maybe we’re inspired because we’re our bodies are breathing which is a process that happens naturally, whether we want it or not.
Yes, you can hold your breath but eventually you will have to breathe in again. So, unless you’re Jeffrey Epstein type of person, you will be inspired until the natural thing happens and your body stops breathing. It’s called death but that’s not the focus today.
Use the inspiration, the breathing, the elevation
Even though breathing happens naturally, there are many breathing exercises that can boost our energy levels. It’s no secret that doing deep breathing calms your mind whenever you’re stressed. Breathing is also a key when you’re meditating.
Whenever I feel tired at work, I make sure to take some deep breaths and get some oxygen for my body to function normally. It’s also one of the reasons why you feel more energy after working out because when you work out, you naturally breathe more than when you would sit comfortably on a chair.
Peace, Love, and Gratitude
It’s what we need to be truly united and stand a chance against the wrongdoings of the system we were born into. None of us had a choice to be here but what we can choose is to make a change. It’s also easy to do that because the true change starts from within ourselves.
I’ll start from myself and you start from you. Together we can do it. Let’s stand for the truth!
