Breathing and Metaphors

Breathe in, breathe out. 20,000 times a day on average. It’s a metaphor for your life. When you are young and ambitious, you breathe in by getting money, sex, people, children, possesions, profit, and experiences. When you are old, you breathe out by giving everything away – your daughter to a husband, your home for a condo, your money for others, your time through donation, your energy for someone or something else. People who find themselves early in life, breathe in faster, and out sooner. Sometimes we go through a few cycles of this.
