'It is we who need to know Breath is Life. What is this breath that is talked about so often?

We sit in a room attending a lecture or concert; we are all sharing the same air. We may not consider this important, and yet, the moment we enter a world of compassion, knowing that the musicians and the conductor in the concert, or he who is giving the lecture, are all sharing the same air with us, something can happen within to help bring about real change' - Reshad FeildAlso on Facebook and Twitter.
