AIR, that miraculous and vital mixture of nitrogen, oxygen and argon is what we breathe, assimilate into the blood, and then exhale in a continuous cycle of giving and receiving. We draw this seemingly invisible substance into our bodies and then give it back to the earth in a transformed state. It is such a fundamental element that we often take it for granted, until we find ourselves short of it. Mixed with heat it becomes thinner and lighter allowing hot AIR balloons to drift upon it. Oh, if we were more like the balloon, rising above whatever the AIR seems filled with, drifting, floating upon its tiny, unseen particles. But wait! Perhaps we can float on the AIR. Warming our consciousness is possible by filling it with Light, with thoughts that rise above the circumstances of life. Thoughts that give thanks for the AIR we breathe, thoughts that acknowledge and revere the miracle of Life, thoughts that give and receive Divine Love lift us higher and we float upon the invisible substance of Spirit.
