What You Inhale You Exhale

Can a person inhale air and exhale water? Can a person inhale water and exhale fire? Of course not, because there is a Universal law that whatever you take in is what you give off, so if you take in water, that is what you will give off.

If you nurture nature (funny how those two words are so similar), nature will nurture you as well, but if you harm it, it will harm you.

My point in this is not to go over what I’ve talked about before, but to show a deeper awareness of this law.

Humans cannot inhale hatred and fear expecting to exhale love and compassion, it just doesn’t work that way. I am the type of person who is aware of certain types of behavior like hatred going on in the world, but I do not allow myself to inhale it, as this will ultimately lead to me exhaling it onto others.

Today, take a few minutes and really pay attention to what you are taking into your body, what you are infusing with your cells, is it really something you want to exhale on others?

About Mimic Nature

Hello everyone! I’m so glad to see you! I’m Jana, I’m an eccentric wife and mother; I work 2 jobs and homeschool my kids. With all this going on in my life, I want to focus my attention on the things that make me happy, and the one thing that has made me happy ever since I was a little kid is nature. As my life progressed and changed through my teen years and my early married life, I lost my connection to it. Life took over and here I am living disconnected from nature because of work, bills, and every day events that keep me away. So the next chapter of my life will be dedicated, at least in some small part, to reconnecting to nature; I still have a mortgage, work, and a family to take care of, but now, I will be more aware of nature and my place within it. Each day, I will find some small way to not harm nature. Not long ago I was introduced to something called permaculture and I fell in love with it. Basically, it’s building a small ecosystem in your own backyard that is based off of what nature would do naturally. In turn your backyard helps you, and you help your backyard…with minimal work!! At first it may take more work, but over time, your backyard will become self-sustaining and you won’t have to work as hard…other than harvesting. I love the life lessons that I learn from nature, so what I promise to do is share a lesson that I’ve learned from nature each week, share what I’m learning about permaculture, and share my own personal progress in changing my homestead into a permaculture Garden of Eden. And since it’s hard to make any changes in life, I want to have some free giveaways once in awhile…all nature themed of course, to help all of us remember our ‘green’ family. Read a few articles, see if you like what is there, if you do, go ahead and subscribe. If you don’t like what you see, that’s ok, I’m honored that you took the time to get to know me a little and see my vision for my blog and my life.

    “Humans cannot inhale hatred and fear expecting to exhale love and compassion, it just doesn’t work that way.” Giiiirl, you have been hitting IT (whatever “it” is) on the nail POST AFTER POST. This totally resounds in my heart. Wow.

    I just started doing Bikram Yoga yesterday after work. (Today is day two so I am far from a yogi) and after, when I was laying on my back in the darkness, the heat of the room swirling around me I felt at such peace.

    In the past, yoga was about other people or about getting recognized by the instructor. Now it is about healing me. I also came to the realization that I need to: Stop the hate. And I mean the hate inside of ME. The hate that I channel, instigate, brood on.

    Interestingly enough, I have also decided that being “extreme” is an unhealthy, unnatural response I have curtail when I have done something wrong. Like for my faith. I was incredibly religious… like a true Catholic AND Evangelical chick. I sloughed that part of me off like a dead skin. But…I have the wisdom now to know that I can absorb and be one with my religious background (As it is an important part of me) without being a radical- without feeling hate towards others….I guess I am challenging myself to live in the middle (so damn hard for me).

    I’m rambling…but I am so goshdarn grateful that you posted this!

      I need to start doing yoga…I did it for awhile but until you really find out what it is designed for (like you did) you take it for granted….oh, this gives me a great idea for another post…. 🙂

      I am so glad you found such peace Jaz!! And I can totally relate! There is a belief that the hatred you see around you is nothing more than a projection of your own hatred, that is why in this school of thought it is more important for you to change your own hatred instead of trying to change others. This thought made me focus more on myself, whenever I see hatred I stop and look within myself…it’s amazing how much hatred I found within!

      I can relate to you when it comes to religion, I wasn’t Catholic but Baptist…and that is what my parents still are today. I, like you, dropped it like a ton of bricks, and yes you can be one with your past, it has brought you where you are and where you are will propel you towards who you will be in the future. I never dropped my faith in an Intelligent Being, I have dropped what religion tells me about this Intelligent Source of all because I don’t think any religion knows everything. I study the basics of a lot of religions and just put the pieces together…with a lot of wisdom coming from the Asia..like Buddha and Lao Tzu. Sorry I got off topic… It is definitely hard to walk that middle path, but you can do it, and so can I 😀

      I’m glad the post resonated with you so deeply, that is my core intent with my posts, to try and connect with people on an inner level ❤
