If you only know how to receive breath but not give thanks, you will never understand the value of breath. Each breath deserves gratitude. It is a feeling, "Yes. It happened." When you can feel that gratitude, you will truly start receiving in your life. What is so beautiful about this, is that it is happening every day. Receive and give. Give your gratitude and receive the ultimate gift in existence. Learn to receive, learn to give, learn to understand; then the cycle flows.
