A Story of Interbeing
And the Master Spoke of Sacred Breath
(c) Ian Paul Marshall
When the disciples had become comfortable and quiet the Master spoke, “On this night, you who are worthy of the secrets of life shall hear them and grow in knowledge and strength. Tonight I shall teach you of the Sacred Breath. Close your eyes now, for whomever has come to understand the world has found that it calls us to a world within. It is because of this realization that you have been lead to seek out the true life. On this night I shall give you what no eye has seen and what no ear has heard and what no hand has touched and what has never occurred to the human mind.”
Like the soft chill of the morn refreshes the senses, Master’s words brought his disciples to life.
The Master was a picture of serenity and peace as he spoke to them, “And the Lord God formed man and woman of the dust of the ground, and breathed into their nostrils the breath of life; and they became living souls. With a deep breath in they are brought to life, eternally connected to the Source, affirmed by every breath they take. The presence of God with them always.”
The sound of the Master’s voice made the trees sway with love, and silently the birds watched from their branches high in the trees. For they too were hopeful that this holy and divine knowledge would let them soar to the gates to heaven, a paradise of which they could only glimpse for the most fleeting of moments.
Master spoke to them and said, “God is breath and breath is life. From my breath, to the air we share, to the winds that blow across the lands. We are called to the remembrance of our unity with each other and the gift of life.”
“Be one with that first breath for in its essence is God and from its source is life. One that has been given to you from the holiest of holies. It is your one true possession. The one great connector to all things. It leads into the deep presence of yourself, beckoning you to follow it to the holy shrine of the moment, and once you have connected to that sacred flame, it calls you back to the world, affirming this gift of life and beseeching you to share that divine life with all of humanity.”
The Master continued, “Follow it’s path as it reminds you that God is first truly within you and that it was from his essence that you have been given life. As you breath out that life you are united and invisibly connected to all the world. A divine and holy communion that is shared in every moment of every day of your life. The breath you release finds fellowship with the wind.”
A devoted disciple took a deep breath in, his awareness drawn to this mystery that had been hidden in plain sight. He felt an energy being drawn into him, a slight tingle in his nose, that traveled to his chest and invigorated his whole being.
Softly, the Master continued on, “When you breath in, you breath in God, and when you breath out, you breath out God. Remember it is this breath that brought you to life. It is this breath that awakened your awareness. It is this breath that connected you to God and to all that is seen and unseen. Follow it now.”
And the Master became quite and all the world followed his lead. For they had found that the temple of Life was within them. A secret chamber they could enter into at any moment of their lives. With a single breath they could connect to the divine source and sacred Oneness that is inherit within all things.
