I Breathe, Therefore I Am!
Air is always there. It is in front, behind, beneath or next to us, yet has neither length, height nor breadth. But what appears to be nothing out of the ordinary because we cannot see it, is in fact indispensable to life. Breathing is invisible and we don’t set great store by things we cannot see.
We forget it with every breath we take, except when we catch our breath, our breathing becomes irregular or we stop breathing altogether. And even then we are only vaguely aware that breathing is the crucial element upon which our life depends.
Without water or food human beings can survive for days or even weeks, but without air not more than a few minutes.
How often do you think about Food?
It is incredible how often human beings think about food: what they would like to eat, what they had better not eat, what they will eat again…
And how often do they think about their most important form of food? The food which enables their life to begin and without which no person would survive for more than a few minutes, namely air?
Do we take air for granted?
Air touches the plants, they unfurl, wind whistles through the ﬂowers, they open, everything that stirs, and everything that does not, it is able to touch. it quietly envelopes everything, nothing escapes its reach.
But we forget it with every breath we take, except when we catch our breath, or our breathing becomes irregular or we stop breathing altogether. And even then we are only vaguely aware that breathing is the crucial element upon which our life depends.
Living means breathing.
In The Vedas the word ‘Prana’ is used to describe the breath of life.
Breathing begins and ends the circle of life. It is where everything starts and then stops again. In the interim we can do a vast number of things to support our breathing in terms of regeneration and prevention.
Human health and performance is directly linked to the body’s own ability to utilise the oxygen in respiratory air, which is the very best source of food and health. It is also through this mode that we eliminate 70% of the toxins/harmful substances from our body!
In 24 hours a person breathes some 400 litres of oxygen at rest and, during physical exercise, considerably more. We take in some eight litres of air a minute and around 12,000 litres a day. An adult draws breath 14 to 18 times a minute at rest. This is more than 21,000 breaths per day. But utilises only 25% of the oxygen in the air they breathe (Prof Bohles, Deutsche Kassenarztverbandl, German Medical Association,1995).
The whale uses 90 % of the oxygen in the air it breathes.
Humans thus make relatively poor use of respiratory air. Of the 21 % of oxygen contained in respiratory air, the human body can only use around 25% . Of this 75 % is exhaled again unused .
It is not the quantity of oxygen which is of greatest signiﬁcance, but rather the ability of the organism to utilise it. And the weaker or older you are, the less oxygen the body utilises.
