Day 58 – Breath is key to Listening

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not hear/listen to others instead go into my backchat about others while they speak to me.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to in fact never listen/hear when another being speaks, and only pay attention to my own backchat.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to never listen/hear others speak instead get caught in my own backchat while another is speaking. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to ignore others while they speak to me by participating in my own backchat. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to neglect others by participating in my own backchat and thereby neglect others as they speak to me. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to never be HERE as others speak to me.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to already participate within my backchat as others speak to me, because I have already allowed extensive judgments about others. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe in the past memories to such an extent that I entirely disregard a being here because of my own judgments/memories about him/her.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to entirely disregard what is HERE because I have allowed memories/past/pictures to be of more value than what is HERE. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that PAST is over with death. As death arrives, there is no more past, the last breath will to be so precious, yet all other breaths before the last breath I have disregarded because I valued pictures/memories as more-than what is here. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to dismiss this breath here, and dismiss what is HERE as life. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to only value that which gives me energy.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not embrace what is HERE as LIFE instead rank them according to my likeness and dislikeness based on past pictures/memories. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to bring the past into this breath here by thinking about it, or recalling past pictures. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize LIFE exist here now in this very breath, not in some past breath. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that LIFE is a breath by breath process, yet LIFE is found in THIS BREATH here. This breath here is a point of access to life HERE. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to want/desire/seek energy for my mind by recalling past memories and pictures. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to recall past pictures and memories to relive those past emotions and feelings as old pictures/memories regenerate old thoughts hence get to relive, re-experience old feelings and emotions. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to be addicted to the past memories/pictures/feelings/emotions. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that I am addicted to pain of the past therefore I keep thinking about the past pictures/memories to recall the past pain, instead of just BREATHING here. 

I am here breathing.

When and as I see myself lost in the chatter of my own backchat, I STOP, I Breathe. I realize getting lost in the chatter of my backchat is simply wasting away my life. I realize/see/understand that the noise in my head is just that, a noise, getting lost in it is entirely a waste of life. I realize/see that life is HERE. I realize that LIFE is not in some past breaths, that are gone yesterday or last year, but this breath here is where life is.

So I breathe, I am here. I direct myself to stop past pictures/memories/judgments/ and instead I direct myself to breathe and be here. When and as I see myself getting lost in the chatter of my mind, I realize I cannot listen/hear to another as I would liked to be listened too, so I stop the chatter of my mind, I breathe. I remain here as breath while I listen/hear another speaking. I realize listening is essential for communication, to get to know another, to understand another, also its a great gift to be HERE as breath while communicating/speaking/listening to another. After all, who wants a noisy mind around, its cool to talk to a silent mind, who will actually listen. So I direct myself to breathe and be here as I listen/hear to others while they speak to me.
