672 million breaths is about the average number a person will do in a lifetime.
On a normal day, we are so obsessed with our thoughts we actually are totally unaware of breathing.
So if we can miss 672 million breaths, what else do we miss being stuck in our repeating mind patterns?
The constant updates, notifications and information that is fed to us 24/7 via TV, the Internet, devices, smart-this and smart-that, means we are rarely present. We are deep in our mind and thoughts, constantly distracted by the thought-provoking ‘ping’ of yet another notification.
The amazing and extraordinary things of life are only available in the real life that is this present moment. Only when we are conscious can we experience reality beyond the mind.
By never missing a thing, we miss everything that matters.
